My deposit failed. What can I do?

There are several reasons why a deposit may fail. They include but are not limited to the following:

  • The balance of your bank account is insufficient. Make sure to have enough funds in your bank account. 
  • You did not complete the payment from your bank account, and it got automatically canceled.
  • You did not input your Reference number (Customer ID)
  • You made cash or a third-party deposit.

My deposit is missing. What should I do?

Your bank deposits are usually processed within 5 business days, however, if on a rare occasion, your deposit does not reflect within the timeframe, please contact us. In order to trace it, we may need proof of payment, e.g. a bank statement showing details of the transaction in question.
