One complaint that usually arises is from people who have had debit orders initiated on their accounts without their approval. This is where Debicheck comes into play. Before a debit order is approved, the customer needs to personally approve it. In this article, we will show you how to approve a Debicheck mandate on the Nedbank app.

It’s important to only approve genuine debit orders

Those are the steps to approve a Debicheck mandate on Nedbank. You can also use the same steps to deny a Debicheck mandate. One thing to note is that you need to be careful what you approve.

A lot of people come back later crying that money is being deducted for Debit orders that they did not approve. If you do not know about the Debit Order, don’t approve it. It’s as simple as that.

A Debicheck is only initiated after a company has reached out to your bank to ask for it to be initiated. This should only happen when you have signed a contract with the company. However, unscrupulous people will initiate bogus debit orders.

That’s the reason why Debicheck is there in the first place. Unfortunately, there are many people out there who are too trusting. They approve everything that they get in their email or on the app. You should not do that.

Another thing to note is that you need to make sure that the details in the debit order are the same ones to which you agreed with the service provider. As an example, if you see that more money is set to be deducted that what you approved, you will need to deny the debit order.
