Access to an electronic funds transfer (EFT) payment for the COVID SRD does not require a smartphone. Below are the methods of payments that clients can choose from:
- EFT into the clients own bank account of choice. A client paid through this process can collect funds at an ATM, participating merchants or Bank branches. Clients can also transact directly with their cards at participating merchants.
- EFT into a Post Bank account (if the client does not have their own account).Clients will have to collect their funds at retailers (PnP, Boxer, Shoprite, Usave or Spar). These clients are expected to be in possession of any type of mobile phone that can receive a one-time pin via USSD message. It is important for clients to use the same mobile numbers they registered with when applying for their social grant.
- Mobile money (cash send) option. A client will receive an sms with a voucher number to collect the funds from the bank of their choice. This method requires any kind of mobile phone that can receive an sms.
