It also introduced a service last week to enable customers to pay their phone, internet and utility bills at Barclays ATMs.
The two electronic channels will allow customers to manage their finances conveniently and securely.
Subscribers will be able to use the full functionality of the internet banking service, including viewing transactions on their current, savings, fixed deposit and loan accounts at their convenience.
They can also transfer funds between their current and savings accounts, as well as to a third party account held with Barclays or other local and international banks.
Customers can use internet banking to pay their utility bills from registered service providers, set up standing orders and order bank drafts, as well as send secure messages to Barclays to enquire about particular transactions on their account, send a compliment or make a complaint.
Barclays internet banking service is free.
ATM bill payment is also free, and enables customers to pay their bills to Intelvision, Airtel and the Public Utilites Corporation at any time.
The service is available on Barclays 14 ATMs on the islands of Mahé, Praslin and La Digue.
Rakesh Jha, Barclays Seychelles Managing Director, said: “Barclays continues to expand its range of products, services and channels.
“Internet banking for individual customers and ATM bill payment join the suite of new and improved electronic banking options that Barclays offers its customers. They also include eStatements, a service that delivers customer statements in their mailbox as a secure, encrypted PDF attachment, and SMS alerts, another service that sends customers SMS messages when a particular transaction takes place on their accounts.
“We are confident that these two new additional channels will make a significant difference to our customers with increasingly busy lives, taking our service levels to great new heights.”
