How to spend

Person handing over B£ paper notes to pay at a fruit & veg market stall


You can pay most B£ businesses using your phone by simply sending a text.

  1. Send a text to the B£ number (07926 200 421) instructing payment to a B£ business with the business username and the amount to be paid.
    e.g. ”pay whitehorse 12.99″ ('whitehorse' is the name of the business, and you want send a payment of 12.99)
    The business username will be visible on a B£ branded sign on or behind the counter. Or if you can't se it, just ask!
  2. B£ will send a text to you and the B£ business confirming the transaction and payment received. The transaction is then complete!
    If you got the business username wrong, or have insufficient funds, you'll get an error message.

Pay Online

You can easily pay individuals and businesses online by simply navigating to My Account and clicking on 'Make a Payment' in the left-hand menu.

Topping Up

You can't get spending electronic B£s before you've topped up. That's pretty straightforward too: just head to My Account and clicking on 'Add funds'. You can top up with a bank transfer or using PayPal. You can always check your balance by texting 'bal' to 07926 200 421.

Paper B£s

Pay-by-text may be the easy way, but B£ paper notes look pretty damn cool... Have a look and read more about who's featured on them. If you do want to put them on your wall, fridge, or mantelpiece, pick up some pristine notes from our online shop.
