Cash and cheque deposits’ facilitation and how the partnership falls into place

As per information provided in the press release, having been integrated with the FABePay portal, the Wio Business app is set to enable users to have cash or cheque deposits initiated in a simple and convenient manner directly in the app, offering a unique reference number that is to be used on each deposit transaction. Making use of the ‘Wio deposit’ service, the code can then be utilised at any FAB cash deposit machine (CDM) to have the transaction completed. Furthermore, the information leveraged to have the reference number generated is automatically matched with the deposit, helping ensure the transaction is carried out in a safe and secure manner.
