Barclays is a bank with branches in the United Kingdom, Africa, the Middle East, Southeast Asia and the Indian Ocean islands. Barclays also offers online banking services in the United States, though there are only a handful of ATM machines available. If you are a customer of Barclays and have a current deposit account, you can use an ATM to deposit any checks that you may have. The Barclays cash machines accept both checks and cash for deposit. When depositing via Barclays ATM, you do not need a deposit slip.
Find a Barclays ATM Location
Currently, Barclays does not list physical branches that accept deposits in the United States. However, if you're in the United Kingdom, you can find the location of your nearest Barclay ATM machine through the Barclays Branch Finder website. You can use this tool to see branch locations using an address, postcode or town name.
Deposit a Check in Person
When you arrive at the Barclays ATM, insert your Barclays debit card and enter your PIN. Press the corresponding button on the screen for the “Deposit” option. If you have more than one account, you may be asked to specify an account for deposit.
Endorse the check by sign it on the back in the designated area, then insert the check into the deposit slot on the machine. Typically, this is on the upper-left corner of the machine. The lights on the deposit slot will be blinking to help you to identify it. You do not need to insert a deposit slip.
You can confirm that you are done submitting checks by pressing the corresponding button on the machine. The button will be to the right of the screen and have a line on the screen pointing to it. If you are not done, you simply press the corresponding button with the line pointing to it indicating that you want to make another deposit. Wait for your receipts to print. You get two receipts for the deposit.
Deposit Money Online
In the United States, you can open an online Barclays savings account and move money into the account with direct deposit or by transferring funds from another bank. You can also use Barclay's Deposit Checks feature to upload the scanned image of a check for deposit via computer or mobile device.
To deposit a check online, log in to the Barclays website or app and look for the "Deposit Checks" option, where you can enter the deposit's amount, select the destination bank account and upload an image of the check's front and back sides. The check needs your signature and the words "For Mobile Deposit at Barclays Bank Only" on the back for acceptance. After submitting, you can expect to receive confirmation from Barclays when your deposit gets received and accepted.
