If you’re in South Africa and are looking to start a Jet account application online, the process is easy and shouldn’t take too much of your time – as long as you meet all the requirements.
All you need is a cellphone number or email address, internet connection and copies of the required documents to upload. This article provides the easiest guide on how to open Jet account online.
Jet account application online
South Africans can begin a Jet account application online through the TFG Money Account application page here. This is because Jet stores fall under the broader The Foschini Group (TFG), which means you’re essentially applying to open a TFG account.
Once you’re on the application page, click “Choose a brand” and choose Jet from the dropdown list. Provide all the required details on the online form, follow the prompts and submit your application. Although you chose Jet at this stage, you will still be able to shop at any of the listed TFG brands with your account.
You can choose between two payment plans – six or 12 months. You will not pay interest charges on the six-month plan provided that your account is up to date, but the monthly repayments may be slightly higher. With the 12-month plan, you will pay interest but with lower monthly instalments. Whenever you make a monthly payment, make sure it reflects by the first of the month to avoid additional interest charges.
The requirements to open Jet account online include the following: Your names, ID number, cellphone number, employment and financial details (for affordability assessment), contacts, and references.
You will be required to upload your proof of income (at least one month, such as a pay slip) along with your bank statements via the online application portal. TFG will then assess these documents to confirm the employment and financial details you provided.
The portal will also require you to accept the TFG account terms and conditions and to confirm that you:
- Do not have any other pending credit applications.
- Have not applied for debt review and are not under administration, sequestration or curatorship.
- Accept that TFG will contact credit bureaus to access your credit profile.
The portal will automatically send you confirmation through SMS or email after you submit your application. If TFG approves your application, it will send you additional information on how to get your store card.
The Jet account application WhatsApp number is 060 944 4884. Simply send your ID number to this contact on WhatsApp to apply. Follow the easy prompts to submit.
Remember, you can always apply at any Jet store or other TFG brand. Be sure to have your ID or driver’s licence and proof of income with you when you visit a store to open an account.
A store assistant will help you to submit your application. If it is approved, you will get an SMS notification inviting you to sign the final credit documents at the store. Afterwards, the store will give you an activated TFG account card. You can now use it to shop at Jet stores across South Africa on credit.
It goes without saying that you must keep up with your monthly instalments to maintain a good credit profile. Contact TFG using the details below in case you need further information:
