A one-stop forum for all your banking questions
I just received notice that my December debit order on my vehicle finance will be deducted on the 15th December. This is unacceptable, my debit order is set to run on the 25th. I've just spent 30 minute on the phone with the call centre explaining that I will not have the funds on this date. It's so upsetting that Standard Bank would put a customer in this position and assume that everyone has available funds in December. I am self employed, and don't get paid early in December nor do I get a 13th cheque. This is ridiculous.

Hopefully this will provide more clarity.
