You Can Now Make Cash Deposit at all Pick n Pay Till Points

Customers can now make cash deposits directly into their own bank account at any Pick n Pay till point, anywhere in South Africa.

Deposits at till points is another first for the retailer as they increasingly become a one-stop-shop where customers can do their shopping and banking at the same time.

For many years, customers have been able to withdraw cash from till points and now they can deposit cash, up to the value of R5,000 per transaction, at any Pick n Pay stores, including Clothing stores.

Pick n Pay facilitated over R36 billion in cash withdrawals last year in its stores, and this is steadily increasing each year as customers enjoy the convenience of being able to ‘bank’ at their nearest Pick n Pay store.

Further promoting financial inclusion in stores is Pick n Pay’s strategic partnership with TymeBank to offer customers access to a low-cost banking solution, including cash withdrawals and deposits through till points.

This new deposits at till points service at Pick n Pay – facilitated through the national payment system – means that customers from all South African banks will be able to deposit cash directly into their bank account at any PnP till point. Customers would need to have their bank card with them and they’d be required to enter their pin into the card machine to complete the transaction.

Richard van Rensburg, Chief Information Officer at Pick n Pay, says that while many customers are choosing the convenience of online banking, many South Africans rely on bank branches or ATMs for services, such as cash deposits.

“We want to make banking services more accessible and convenient for customers, and offering these value-added services helps us do this due to the location and network of our 1700+ stores.”

Deposits at till points will provide easy access for customers who don’t have a bank branch or ATM in their area, which will save them time and money they would have spent on transport. Our stores will also provide a safe environment to deposit their cash, seven days a week,” says van Rensburg.

The other role-players involved in facilitating this service include Visa, Mastercard, and Absa as the acquiring partner to Pick n Pay. There is a set transaction fee of R19,95 for this service, irrespective of the amount deposited.

Through the Visa Direct platform, any cash deposits made by Visa cardholders will reflect on their bank account in real-time.
