Making international payments on internet banking is simple. This channel is suitable for payments of up to R1.5m per transaction. Clients can view and book exchange rates, upload the requested documents for the payment, and track the status online. To register for internet banking, visit the Standard Bank website, click on “Sign into account”, then click on “Internet Banking” and register your details.
Standard Bank’s alternative channel Business Online enables segregation of duties and individual limits; it integrates with mainstream accounting packages; and it allows clients to make future-dated payments. It’s suitable for payments of any amount and from rand and foreign currency accounts. It also accommodates single and multiple payments. To go digital, Business Online clients can contact their transactional relationship team.
