Nedbank has announced new functionality for its Money app which lets users withdraw cash from an ATM without using a bank card.

The feature is currently available at select ATMs. A full list of ATMs is available on the Nedbank website (opens as PDF).
If you want to use the QR code option to withdraw money, follow these steps:
- Log in to the Money app.
- Select the “Get cash” widget.
- Enter the amount you’d like to withdraw.
- Select the account you want to withdraw cash from.
- Select “Scan now”.
- On the ATM screen, choose “Money app withdrawal”.
