How does it work?


Let’s say you take out a Personal Loan with us and choose to pay by debit order,  before we can debit your account, you will first need to give us permission by accepting a DebiCheck. 

You can approve your debit order by instant message or SMS, through the Nedbank Contact Centre, at a Nedbank branch or ATM, or on a point-of-sale device. DebiCheck is designed to put you in control of your debit orders and to help you manage your money better.

Insert your debit card at any Nedbank ATM

More about DebiCheck

  • You can raise a dispute over a DebiCheck debit order within 365 days
  • You can raise a dispute in only certain cases: 
    • If there is a discrepancy between the amount collected and the mandate within collection rules.
    • If there is a discrepancy between the date the collection was done and the mandate within collections rules. 
  • These checks will be done automatically when you dispute a transaction.
  • Nedbank clients can log disputes on any of our channels.
  • If the dispute is successful, you will be credited immediately

You can stop a debit order set up via DebiCheck. This is called a mandate suspension

This process can only be done in specific instances: 

  • When you have cancelled the contract with the company.
  • When the contract with the company has expired.
  • When the contract with the company has changed.

Once you have requested a mandate suspension, the mandate will be suspended indefinitely, and no further collections can be processed. 

If you have signed a contract,
that company will contact your bank to arrange a debit order.
