Capitec published its new banking fees for the 2019/20 year, which came into effect from 1 March.
The group said that with its 2019 fees, it’s paving the way for digital banking by further lowering digital bank fees in 2019.
“Capitec clients can bank on our app, internet banking and USSD for less from anywhere, anytime,” it said.
