What is DebiCheck?

How do I approve DebiCheck mandates?

Approving a DebiCheck mandate is simple! When arranging a new debit order or applying for a Wonga loan, you'll need to accept a DebiCheck mandate authorising payment from your account.

To do this, you'll need to approve the mandate you will receive from your bank through online banking, mobile (app) banking, or USSD.

Our helpful guide can assist you should you need to approve a mandate - detailed instructions are available for customers banking with ABSA, FNB, Nedbank, Capitec, and Standard Bank.
