nedbank internet banking

Nedbank internet banking offers you a wide variety of features to meet your banking needs independent of time and location. Even more importantly, Nedbank’s online banking solution is safe and effortless.

Most businesses have a heavy online presence to serve the modern-day tech-savvy population that’s increasingly dependent on online platforms for their daily needs. Banks, too, have levelled up to this new norm by creating elaborate and secure infrastructure to facilitate online transactions between businesses and businesses, and businesses and clients. Nedbank, in particular, has an internet banking option for users to carry out banking activities safely. However, to transact through Nedbank’s online banking, you have to open a Nedbank account online.

How to Open Nedbank Internet Banking

There are two online banking options for Nedbank clients: internet banking, where you create an online account through Nedbank’s official website, and Nedbank’s money app.

To register for Nedbank’s internet banking, you have to:

  1. Load secured.nedbank.co.za on your browser and click “Register”
  2. Key in your South African government-issued identification number or a foreign passport number
  3. The bank will send an approve-it message to your registered phone. Accept it, and proceed to the next step
  4. Create a unique Nedbank ID username for your account, and a password
  5. Use your PIN, profile number, and password to link your profile

Other than this, you can create an account or register on the Nedbank Money app using this process:

  1. Go to your phone’s Google play store or app store and download the Nedbank money app
  2. Once the app is downloaded successfully, open it
  3. Click on “Log in”
  4. Choose “Personal profile”
  5. Key in your ID number (for South Africans) or your foreign passport number (for non-South Africans)
  6. The bank will send an approve-it message to your registered mobile number. Accept it to proceed to the next step of the registration process
  7. Create both a unique Nedbank ID username and a strong password
  8. Lastly, you have to link your money app profile using your unique profile number, password, and PIN, or your card and PIN

To create an account in the Nedbank Money app or internet banking, you first need a Nedbank credential. Follow this process to create your Nedbank credentials on Nedbank ID.

  1. Load secured-id.nedbank.co.za on your browser and click “Register” on the website’s homepage
  2. Key in your ID number (for South Africans) or foreign passport number (for non-South Africans)
  3. The bank will send an approve-it message to your registered phone. Accept the request to proceed to the next step in the process
  4. Lastly, create a unique Nedbank ID username and a strong password

Unlike old Login credentials used by online banks, Nedbank uses a Nedbank ID to secure online transactions with Nedbank and third parties. With this ID, it is easy to track all your digital interactions with the bank.

Nedbank ID is easy to remember, secure, easy to create for all clients and ensures a good client experience.
