Cellphone banking


iStore Card, administered by Standard Bank brings your banking to your fingertips!

Cellphone banking is easy, safe, convenient and cost effective, allowing you to do your banking anywhere, anytime.


It's convenient!

  • Check how much money you have (your balance)
  • Find out what's happening in your account (mini-statement)
  • Make payments (beneficiary payments)
  • Buy airtime for Vodacom, MTN, Cell C or Virgin Mobile (prepaid airtime)


It's cost effective!

There is no monthly subscription PLUS you get these transactions FREE:

  • balance enquiries
  • mini-statements
  • prepaid transactions

You only pay normal electronic banking fees for paying beneficiaries.

iStore Card Message: Cellular network charges apply: your service provider will charge you for the amount of information sent to and from your cell phone. These charges are usually very low, so making a payment to a beneficiary may cost you only 4 cents


It's Safe!

Your cell phone banking sessions are secured by the same 128-bit encryption used for Internet banking. You also log on using your iStore Card number and a PIN.

As long as you keep these numbers secret, nobody else will be able to access your iStore Card account.

iStore Card Tip: No banking details are stored on your cell phone, so if you lose it or it is stolen, your iStore Credit Card details won’t be on it.


It’s Easy!

We offer two cell phone banking options:
WAP banking is banking on the mobile Internet. It requires a WAP 2.0 enabled cell phone.
The new cell phone banking service allows you to access cell phone banking via a dial-up session. (You may use any cell phone for this option)
