PAY CONVENIENTLY WITH A BANK CARD
Credit card payment does not require registration, it is enough to provide your credit card number, expiration date and CVC on the back of the card, and a working e-mail address.
However, once you sign up, you'll never have to type in your card number again at any Barion outlet, and you'll only need to enter your e-mail address and password to pay. Not only is this convenient, it also increases security!
You can use:
Your Mastercard or Maestro card
Your Visa or Electron card
Your Amex card
PAY CONVENIENTLY WITHOUT CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD

There is no (and cannot be) surcharge for the buyer on card payments. Registration and the Barion mobile app as well as receiving and sending money are and will remain free. No monthly fee.
