  • Stop and replace your debit card

    • You have complete control over your debit card. Lost your card? Replace your card on Absa Online, on the Banking App, contact us telephonically or visit your nearest branch.
  • Shop online

    • If you have a chip debit card, you can shop online wherever you see the ‘pay with your credit card’ sign. Shopping is more secure with 3D secure.
  • Manage your limits

    • Conveniently set and adjust your daily point-of-sale (POS) and cash withdrawal (ATM) limits on the go on Absa Online and our mobile banking app to make sure you are prepared for the purchases you need to make with your debit card.
  • Chip cards

    • A chip debit card offers you a higher level of protection against fraud when you transact. Ensure that you are no longer using a magstripe card, and replace it free-of-charge for a chip card in a branch.
