If you wish to start your Edgars account application online in South Africa, you need to have the full details, including requirements and how to make payments such as via EFT.
We outline this information in this article based on the Edgars website and recent social media updates by their customer service representatives.
How to begin your Edgars account application online
You can start your Edgars account application online by visiting the brand’s accounts page and clicking “Apply Now” to apply for Account Protection.
According to Edgars, it is necessary for you to insure your account “for your peace of mind.” This is why you have to consent to Account Protection before applying.
“You can apply for our Account Protection, through Hollard, or you can cede your existing insurance to us. Once you have completed the Account Protection information section, you will be redirected to complete the application form for the Edgars Account,” the company says on its website.
To get an Account Protection Plan, you must fill in your names, ID number, cellphone number and email in the online form. Click “Proceed to Consent” once you have provided all these details. You will then be redirected to the Edgars account application online form.
Edgars account requirements
According to a recent Facebook comment by the company, the requirements for opening an Edgars account are as follows:
- You must be 18 years or older.
- You must be permanently employed or self-employed or be a pensioner.
- You must have a minimum income of R2,000 per month.
- You must have a bank account in your own name.
- You must have an excellent ITC Score and Credit Profile.
In addition, you must provide the following documents:
- ID card or green barcoded ID book.
- 3 months latest pay slips or bank statements reflecting your salary.
This means that you will need to save copies of these documents on your device and then upload them during the online application process. Once this process is complete, the company will contact you regarding the outcome of your application.
In case you’re unable to apply over the internet, you can always visit an Edgars store where their store assistants will help you open your account.
