Hi I had an eft done to my account from a standard bank account. The eft is showing under transactions on my app and showing as the closing balance in my online banking statement however it is not available in my available funds in my account. How is this possible?

Hello @Jay2012,

 

The transaction usually takes up to 24 hours to reflect on your account.  If this is still not resolved please email us with your account and transaction details date etc.

 

You can mail us here: [email protected]

I am closing my standard account, no instant EFTs is a deal breaker for me. Just please close your accounts, WHAT BANK ISN'T INSTANT! Terrible bank.

Hello @jayalexinf,

 

Please be advised that there is a 24 hour period maximum clearance time (on a business day) for transfers between Standard Bank accounts. Weekends and public holidays are not considered business days. Should the transfer take longer, please contact customer care on 0860 123 000 or forward your accounts number/s, ID number and contact details to [email protected] in order for us to trace where the funds are currently sitting and assist you further.

 

Regards,

Mandy

This is not what your client is asking. He asked WHY is takes so long. Surely there must be a reason for this corrupt system and banking practise.

Clearance of what? The transfer was STD Bank to STD Bank. Don't you trust your own technology? If so, why should we?
