It couldn’t be easier to switch to Absa. Get started with an Absa account by choosing the bank account that best suits your needs.

How it works

  • Choose your account

    • Gold Value Bundle: Great value for money that reflects your gold earning status. Minimum income: R4 000 per month.
    • Premium Banking: Get a better perspective with a Premium Banking cheque account and enjoy added convenience through our priority service. Minimum income: R25 000 per month.
    • Flexi Account: Looking for a basic account that meets your daily needs? At R29.00 per month you can enjoy full service banking and only pay for the transactions you make.
    • Transact Account: If you earn less than R3 000 per month or don’t have an income right now, our basic and affordable Transact Account will meet all your everyday banking needs.
  • Debit Order and Salary Switching

    Once you have your new Absa account, you can switch your salary and debit orders. Simply fill in an online Debit Order and Salary Switching Request and email it to switching@absa.co.za or fax it to 086 753 3537 and we'll take care of the rest.
