Save money with internet banking

We should all be looking for ways to save money. When it comes to banking, making use of internet banking is one of the most convenient ways to save.

Internet banking also puts your financial information at your fingertips, which makes it easier to manage your finances. At any given moment, if you have an internet connection, you can check your balances through your African Bank online account. Our internet banking and our mobile banking app are Free-to-Use.

How to check my account online

Internet banking is a free feature for African Bank customers. It allows you to access your account through:

  • A computer, by logging on to your account on africanbank.co.za
  • A phone or a tablet, using our mobile banking app.

 To access Internet Banking, visit the African Bank website to register for an online account. Remember, you will need an email address to be able to use online banking or our mobile banking app.

Although downloading the app requires data, once you have the app, you can use it for free – African bank covers all data usage costs. Downloading the app uses about 64mb of data.

The convenience of internet banking

Nowadays it’s rarely necessary to go into a bank branch, which means you can conduct your financial affairs from wherever you are.
