Ways to Bank



Do you need to send money to someone who doesn’t have a bank account? With CashSend from Absa, receiving and sending money is quick and easy. The person to whom you have sent the money can withdraw it from most Absa ATMs using a reference number and access code.

You can transfer cash from an Absa savings or cheque account via Absa Online, Cellphone Banking or most Absa ATMs. The recipient can then withdraw the funds without using a card. They simply select the ‘CashSend Withdrawal’ option at the Absa ATM and enter both the 10-digit code sent to them by the CashSend system and the 6-digit access code you created. You can also send cash to yourself when you don’t have your bank card with you and you need cash.

CashSend could be the right choice if you:

  • Send money across the country to family members quickly and easily, whether they have bank accounts or not
  •  Would like to send money safely and quickly to your children
  •  Are paying your household staff or gardener
  •  Have just lost your bank card and need to send funds to yourself
