Frequently asked questions
If you ‘tap-and-pay’ with your Premium Banking Credit Card, the payment will always be linked to your Credit Card facility.
This functionality will only be applicable to the primary cardholder. Someone with a secondary card will not be able to access the one card functionality.
As a security mechanism, this card has been set with predetermined daily limits for your transactional/savings account of R5 000 for Point Of Sale transactions and R1 000 for ATM transactions.
Should you wish to increase/decrease these limits you are welcome to do so using the Banking App, Online Banking or at any Absa branch. Your credit card limits can also be altered using our IVR functionality.
When traveling abroad you will not be able to access the one card solution at point of sale machines but the function will be available at ATMs.
