What is Overdraft?
An African Bank Overdraft facility is a credit facility, in the form of an agreement made with African Bank that allows a MyWORLD account holder to use or withdraw more money than what they have in their MyWORLD account, up to an approved limit.
In other words, the customer’s MyWORLD account can have a debit, or a negative, balance.
How Does It Work?
Because the Overdraft is linked to your MyWORLD account, you will need to have a MyWORLD account first to start the Overdraft application process. Once approved for a certain limit, you will have access to funds when you have used up all the money in your MyWORLD bank account.
You can use these funds for emergencies. You can also use these funds for making ATM cash withdrawals and for making online purchases using your MyWORLD bank account.
You have peace of mind, knowing you have access to funds in an emergency. The Overdraft can help with
** Mid-month emergency expenses.
** Access to cash before pay day.
** Cover for rainy days when you are running short on cash.
** It helps you to manage your monthly cash flow and provides protection from unpaid debit orders when your salary gets used up.

There are several ways to apply for African Bank’s Overdraft facility. You can
** Apply online 24/7 using our African Bank App or by registering for Online Banking on our website. You will not be charged any data when using our digital banking platforms.

2. Is the Overdraft facility a Loan?
No. The Overdraft is a facility offered to the customer, providing access to additional funds up to an approved specified amount. This Overdraft will be available for use on the customer’s MyWORLD account.
There is no disbursement of funds into the MyWORLD bank account, instead a facility limit is loaded thereby increasing the customer’s available funds.
Customers will be able to see their current and available balances, as well as limits, on their Online Banking or Banking App profile and on their bank statements.
3. What happens if I exceed my Overdraft facility limit?
In exceptional cases, a customer may exceed their Overdraft limit due to fees processed to their account. A customer will always remain responsible for the re-payment of the full balance.
4. What is the maximum and minimum amounts on African Bank’s Overdraft facility?
Depending on the customer’s affordability, the maximum facility offered is R100 000 and the minimum facility offered is R3 500.
5. What happens if I successfully apply for an Overdraft but do not use it?
The Overdraft will remain available to you, our valued customer, and you will be charged the monthly Overdraft fee of R60 plus VAT.
However, if it remains un-utilised for a period of time, African Bank may decide to cancel the Overdraft. Affected customers will be notified in advance if this happens.
6. Which documents are required to apply for an Overdraft facility?
One bank statement and 3 payslips are required or one bank statement showing 3 salary deposits and one payslip. All latest documents are required as per African Bank’s Credit Policy.
