HI there,


I am having trouble transferring money using my Std Bank app. I need to transfer to a UK bank account (HSBC) which I do every month as I am currently living in the UK. The app told me that my EAP limit is too low but it's set at more than what I want to transfer (eg if I am transferring R500, it is set at £700). This happens about once a year. Why is it happening and how can I solve the problem?

Hello @Aubreynks,


Please be advised that your EAP limit is available to use 24/7 provided that you have not surpassed it. Should you go over, please be advised that you can adjust on the mobile banking app or online banking platform.


Kind Regards,

Hi I am currently unable to increase my EAP limit or daily limit. It says that option is not available on my profile and I need to call standard bank. I thought the app could do that without any hassles. Please help


Yesterday I called your call centre to increase my EAP, and I received a message that it was done. But still I am still at the same amount I had. And I have to do se online payments. This is so frustrating since we'll I can even increase it my self on my mobile banking.
