Frequently asked questions about business debit orders in South Africa and the benefits thereof:

#1 How Do Debit Orders Work? 

A debit order is a commitment between you and a third party to take an agreed amount of money out of your bank account every month to pay for a service or to repay a loan.

#2 What Happens If I Stop a Debit Order? 

The customer can go to his or her bank and request for future debit orders to be stopped/returned without being paid. The debit order will still be reflected on the customer’s account, but their bank will automatically return the debit on the same day. 

#3 How Long Does a Debit Order Reversal Take? 

Your debit order will now be successfully reversed, and money should reflect into your account in the next 2 business days. It’s that simple!

#4 What is the Difference Between a Debit Order and a Stop Order? 

In simpler terms, a stop-order or scheduled payment is an instruction that you issue to your bank to make a series of future dated recurring payments, whereas a debit order is an instruction that you provide to a third party to pull the funds from your bank account.
