The dongle was free last time I checked. My sister opened her account a few months ago and paid R0 for the dongle. I recently moved from the Dongle to the app on my phone - it's great.
Capitec is really awesome. I am a very happy customer. Everybody should have a Capitec account! Great interest, barely any fees, everything is simple and quick and easy... I don't hate my bank anymore!
My Capitec account coupled with my Virgin Money Credit Card means all my banking needs are taken care of at very little expense, and barely any hassles.
