Universal Absa Branch Code
Absa Bank has adopted the usage of universal branch codes by the Reserve Bank in South Africa.
The idea is to centralize branch codes for clients to use a single 6-digit number to make online payments. Instead of memorizing the branch code at which you’ve opened the account, simply grab the Absa universal branch code and use it.
And here’s the Absa universal code: 632005.
This code will ensure the payment is allocated to the correct account number and processed faster.
When to use a Branch Code?
A branch code is required when bankers want to make an online payment (EFT) or cellphone banking.
Previously, customers were required to keep a record of the branch-specific code to make payments to bank accounts. But now, there’s no need for that, in fact, Absa is issuing the universal code.
The universal code for Absa (632005) will simplify your banking.
It gets even better.
When making a payment online using the internet or mobile app banking, you’re often asked to choose the bank or enter a branch code.
When you select a bank, the app will automatically populate the universal branch code of that bank so you don’t stress about finding it.
