your online shopping made easier
You no longer need to register your card or use the Mastercard® SecureCode™ for online shopping on sites such as takealot.com and Computicket, or apps such as Uber and Mr D Food.
Forget long registrations and waiting periods, getting your card ready for online shopping is now quick and easy.
Your card will automatically be activated for online shopping, but your default limit is set at R0. You won’t be able to do online shopping with a R0 limit, so you have to increase your limit before you get started.
Note that your online shopping limit is not the same as your card purchase or ATM limits and must be set separately.
Once set up, you’ll approve your online purchases on our banking app or through USSD notification.
