Hello @Gerhard9,


Please be advised that you can only get the funds to reflect immediately by using the immediate payment feature when paying a beneficiary from another bank. Should you not use the immediate payment feature, the normal process will apply where funds will only clear within 2 - 3 business days.

Someone paid cash into my friends standard bank account for me. When we try send an instant money voucher to my phone, the app only generates a pin, not a voucher number.

How do I get my cash
