Introducing DebiCheck debit orders - the safer way to do debit orders.

DebiCheck is a new type of debit order that helps prevents unauthorised debit orders being created without your knowledge.

What is DebiCheck?

DebiCheck is a new kind of debit order which includes a verification system. This allows you to accept or reject the creation of new DebiCheck debit orders or changes to existing DebiCheck debit orders. Previously some debit orders could be set up on your account without your permission. With DebiCheck debit orders you now have the ability to:


View DebiCheck debit orders


Accept or reject DebiCheck debit orders


Manage DebiCheck debit orders

How do DebiCheck debit orders work?

Whenever a service provider or a merchant (e.g. a gym membership, car finance etc.) creates a DebiCheck debit order on your account or changes the details of an existing DebiCheck debit order, you will be sent a verification request on your cell phone.

You can then review the DebiCheck debit order details and choose to accept or reject it. It’s that simple.

By accepting a DebiCheck debit order, your bank will now know the details of what you agreed to and will only process that DebiCheck debit order on the terms that you agreed to in your contract with the merchant.

Any changes to that DebiCheck debit order for example a different payment date or a different amount, must be accepted by you first before your bank makes the changes.

Important: We need to have your cell phone number so that you get your DebiCheck verification requests. 

How do I use DebiCheck?

A merchant or service provider wants to create a DebiCheck debit order onto one of your accounts.
You will receive a DebiCheck notification on your cell phone asking you to review the debit order details then accept or reject the DebiCheck debit order.
You can do this using any Absa ATM, your Absa Banking App, Absa Online Banking or USSD/cell phone banking (but remember your Absa Banking App is the easiest and quickest way to do your DebiChecks and all your banking).
