Real Pay DebiCheck: Onboarding process, production pilot and contract update

The DebiCheck initiative is gaining momentum at industry level and role players are gearing up to ensure that they are ready by 1 February 2019. Awareness of the new stream has already been created in the media and general communication is on the increase.

The process of onboarding Real Pay DebiCheck production pilot Users is progressing well. We remind Users to complete and return the DebiCheck onboarding documents to Once you have received notification that you are DebiCheck live, you can commence with submitting controlled live production pilot transactions against payers’ banks accounts, which will be managed between Real Pay and the User. We recommend that you start with the production pilot as soon as possible.

All Users should take note that our Terms and Conditions have been updated to incorporate the DebiCheck payment stream, “DebiCheck,” and its’ associated phases, “Production-Pilot”, “Ramp-Up” and “Migration”.
