Get money from an ATM without a bank card

It’s Monday. In a hurry to leave for work, you grab your laptop bag, hustle the kids into the car and battle traffic to get them to school and yourself to the office. You make it to work on time and all’s well until you need to go to lunch – when you realise you forgot your wallet and all your cards at home.

Do you go hungry all day, beg a loan from a colleague, or just pop to your nearest Nedbank ATM with your smartphone to draw some cash without your bank card? That’s right, using your smartphone and quick response (QR) codes, you can interact with our advanced ATMs to withdraw cash from any of your Nedbank accounts linked to the Money app.

Rising popularity of cardless cash withdrawals

There are numerous reasons why cardless cash withdrawals are popular. The facility is a foolproof way to ensure your bank card is never swallowed by the ATM. Whether it’s a deliberate sabotage of the machine by fraudsters trying to steal your card, a glitch in the ATM itself, or the result of you absent-mindedly entering the wrong password too often, getting a card stuck in the machine is always an inconvenience. Not only are you left without cash, but you’ve also lost your card. This can be particularly challenging when you’re travelling.

Card cloning or outright theft is another reason you may not want to go out on the town with all your bank cards on your person.

Being able to draw cash at a Nedbank ATM with only your smartphone is a solution to these card-related issues.
