First National Bank (FNB) has launched a new functionality on its banking app that enables customers to shop directly from the app.
The eBucks Shop, which was previously only accessible on the eBucks website, offers customers exclusive pricing for products ranging from tech and gaming to appliances and outdoor.
FNB is the first bank to offer this service on app, leveraging the growing usage of its digital platforms with over 2.8 million active app users in SA and more than 700 000 average visits per month to the eBucks Rewards tab.
FNB says shopping on the app provides customers with the convenience and security of paying via FNB Pay, which allows customers to make purchases by selecting their pre-loaded qualifying FNB cheque or credit cards.
“This is much more secure compared to the traditional way of online shopping which requires customers to expose their details on third party platforms.”
The app also has the ability to track purchases and view order history.
To access and start shopping on the app, customers must have an existing eBucks account and have the latest version of the FNB/RMB app.
Log in to the FNB app on your smartphone, select the Shop now icon under eBucks Rewards and follow the prompts.
