No more Petrol cards
The bank said “In view of these upcoming developments, Standard Bank is informing its customers that they can however still pay cash or use their Standard Bank credit/debit cards or even their fleet card when fuelling up or having their car serviced.
“Customers can apply for a credit or debit card from Standard Bank Namibia and use that to purchase fuel as from the end of February next year. A credit card is quite versatile in the sense that it is a universal card recognised and used internationally. It can be used anywhere in the world,” said Deborah Henckert, the bank’s Manager for Unsecured Lending, Credit Card Issuing & Market Development.
But she pointed out that the phasing out of petrol/garage cards in Namibia does not currently have an effect on the Fleet Management Cards of Standard Bank Namibia.
