Bank Zero promises low fees and rogue debit order, card-skimming protecting
We started much later than some of the other challenger banks in this market. But we’re gaining on them!Michael Jordaan - Chairperson, Bank Zero
Bank Zero has implemented its robust EFT payments system and started testing ahead of the bank’s launch in the second half of the year.
It is successfully processing payments and debit orders as well as the buying of prepaid data, airtime and electricity.
The low-free bank claims it can provide more security from fraud than its established competitors, and that card skimming would be impossible.
Bank Zero doesn’t have entry-level accounts; all customers have access to all features such as free rogue debit order protection.
It promises an easy-to-use app.
