Step 3:


  • You will need to give a reason for your reversal.
  • Note:  “Reversing a debit order payment does not stop a debit order from recurring. Should you wish to stop future payments, use the Stop debit order option or call 0860 123 000 or visit a branch.”

Step 5:


  • Once you have selected the reversal reason from the dropdown box the customer must Read and Accept the Terms & Conditions by clicking in the Box indicated.
  • Note: I understand that Standard Bank will not be responsible for any errors resulting from incorrect information I give.

    • Cancel button - enabled
    • Back button - enabled
    • Next button – disabled until T&C’s are accepted.
