Activating the credit card ability of your Capitec Global One Card is easy as 1-2-3!
Once you have your Global One Card follow these steps:
- Visit a Capitec Bank branch near you,
- Ask for the Credit Card ability of your card (Capitec Mastercard SecureCode).
Wait 24 hours after receiving the sms before following the instructions on the page
NB! If you try to activate your card before the 24 hour period is over you will render your code invalid and you will then have to restart the process.
Waited 24 hours? Now you may follow either option A or B on the page. I’ll be covering option A.
You need to answer 3 security questions for activation so have these ready:
- Your card expiry date (The date in the red rectangle below)
- Your national ID number or Passport number
- Your activation code which is in the SMS
- Type in the address (https://www.capitecbank.co.za/mastercard-securecode-activation), then click on the Activate MasterCard SecureCode button which will take you to a page like the one below
- click activate now
- Now enter your Card Number (NOT your account number) & email address
- click next
- Now you should read the terms & conditions
- Once you’ve read it (Did you really read it? :P) you should be at the bottom of the page
- Tick the ‘Accept’ box and click next
- Enter the name on your card exactly as it is, complete with uppercase
- Select the expiry date of your card
- Enter your National ID number or Passport number
- Type in the activation code you received in the SMS
- Click Next
- Create your SecureCode
- Create your personal greeting
- Click next
Well done! You have activated your Global One Card’s credit card abilities and you are now ready to go online shopping! 😀
