Would you like to be informed about activity within your account as it happens? Do you want to monitor your finances on the go via SMS or email? Absa’s NotifyMe service will alert you to transactions that take place on your account with an immediate SMS or email, if you choose.

NotifyMe from Absa is a great way of keeping track of your finances conveniently, and allows you to stay informed and in control of transactions on your accounts.

With NotifyMe from Absa you can decide which transactions you want to be notified of and set the service to alert you to any transactions over a specified amount, request daily or weekly balance updates, and stipulate the times of the day that you want to receive messages.

Multiple recipients can receive NotifyMe alerts, in either English or Afrikaans, and the service can be activated on any cheque accounts,savings account or credit cards.

  • Are an existing Absa customer with either a cheque or savings account and/or credit card
