Honoring fee

Good morning, @Bianca12.

 

Thank you for reaching out.

 

An honouring fee is a fee charged for using your card when you do not have enough available funds for the transaction.

 

An honouring fee is charged when you swipe your card and the merchant debits your account for a transaction that occurred days, weeks, or months ago.

 

Under "narrative" (description of transactions), for a delayed transaction, it’ll tell you the exact date of the transaction.

 

Should you be suspicious? You’re welcome to get in touch with our fraud team on 0800 222 050.

 

If you want to dispute the transaction, kindly share your email address, and we will share the form with you.

 

To avoid being charged an honouring fee, please download our banking app or cellphone banking and always check your account balance.

 

Mainly focus on the available balance, as it is a direct reflection of what is available for you to use.

 

This way, it’ll make things a little bit easier to keep track of all your transactions.

 

Please let me know if this answers your question.

 

Kind regards,

Standard Bank Team

What is the honoring fee for while my card was use by my son while he didn't know that there is enough money there and the card declined 4 good times with charges of r8.50 was taking 4 good times. The honoring fee was not necessary and its was the first time my card declined when there is no enough money and the card charged the same r8.50
