What is the difference between a monthly management fee and a monthly service fee on an account? (When a service fee is already being charged on transactions)
There is no difference between the two. A monthly management fee is single monthly service fee for a fixed number of transactions and services, including the monthly maintenance of your account. Additional fees may apply for extra or unforeseen transactions or if an account is not compliant or kept for its intended use. It is always best to refer to our pricing guide to ensure you have a suitable account and pricing option for yourself and to assist you avoid unnecessary charges.
I have never been so annoyed with a bank in my life! I pay the monthly fixed fee of R59 and you guys are still charging me for charges
Should you be referring to the AccessAccount Plus option for R59 a month, visit: http://bit.ly/GTvJ0r for features and benefits of the account. For all transactions over and above the limited free transactions offered in the bundle, the pay-as-you-bank pricing rates will apply. All branch transactions are also charged at the pay-as-you-bank pricing rates. Thanks
You guys have the highest bank fees! I'm changing banks!
We offer pricing packages that allow a customer to choose whether they’d like to pay a fixed fee that covers a multitude of transactions and transaction types; or pay per transaction. Each banking package has a different fee structure. You're welcome to discuss any pricing issues with our help desk consultants on 0860 123 000 or visit your nearest branch for assistance. Our consultants will be able to advise on an option best suited for your needs. Thanks
I was not aware it cost that much to withdraw money from the teller. I was browsing through my statement when I noticed that I have been charged R99.00 for a R6000.00 withdrawal.
We are trying to keep banking costs to a minimum by automating transactions where possible. The handling of cash is manual and there are costs involved. You can avoid these charges by making electronic transfers, payments or making ATM cash withdrawals, as the charges will be less than what you would be charged if you withdrew cash from within the bank. Thanks
I have fees going off my account that I haven't authorised. What do I do?
It's best to check with our help desk on 0860 123 000 or your nearest branch as to what the specific fees are for. If there have been unauthorised debit orders on your account, we will gladly assist with reversing incorrect debit orders. Thanks
Can I change my pricing package on my account?
Yes, you can change your pricing option at any time, but the newly selected option will only come into effect at the start of the new monthly cycle.
What is an honouring fee?
When there is not enough money in an account to honour a debit order, we may decide to honour it anyway. The fee is for that.
I didn't know about the fees.
It is our practice to take customers through all prices and fees. You would have been given a guide to pricing when opening the account. If you were not, we'd need more details from you so that we can investigate further. Our pricing guides are also readily available at any of our branches or online www.standardbank.co.za Thanks
I have a business account with you and I'm being charged a ridiculous amount of money for fees!
Fees are determined individually for each business account. You're welcome to chat to a business banking consultant on 0860 109 075. Our consultants will be able to assist. Thanks
I wasn't told about the fee increase.
Our focus is on simplifying our pricing and adding value to the wide range of products and services we have to offer.

I closed my account but have received a letter saying I'm going to be handed over for outstandingfees.
