Send money anywhere in South Africa

Safely send money to your loved ones – it’s as easy as 1-2-3!

Is your boss annoyed because you have to take time off work to stand in a long queue at the bank again? Luckily, this will be the last time this happens because Ackermans has the solution: a three-step process to get the money from your pocket to your family at home instantly.

  1. Go to your nearest Ackermans store and give the cashier your ID and cellphone numbers as well as the amount you want to send. (You’ll need to take your South African ID with you.)
  2. You’ll see a 10-digit withdrawal number on your till slip and you’ll be asked to enter a four-digit PIN. Send both these numbers to the recipient of the money.
  3. And there you go! Your friend or family member can collect their cash at any Ackermans, Shoprite, Checkers, Shoprite Usave or an ABSA ATM, using the withdrawal number and PIN.


You can send up to R1 000 per transaction, R3 000 per day and R25 000 per month. The money must be drawn within 365 days.

This convenient and safe way of sending money will cost you only R9,99.
