Hello @MNls.

 

Thank you for reaching out.

 

Honouring fee is a fee charged for using your card while you do not have enough available funds for the transaction.

 

Honouring fee is charged when you are swiping your card and when the merchant is debiting your account for a transaction process days, weeks or months before.

 

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

 

Should you suspect it as fraud. 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 honouring fee, please download our banking app or cellphone banking and always check your account balance.

 

Mainly focus on 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,
