We recommend that all money transfers are processed at a local branch of Standard Bank as this will enable the company to confirm a deposit within approximately 2 hours, often sooner. A money transfer that is processed at any other bank can take up to 3 days to appear on the company's account and may result in a delay in goods being despatched, as orders cannot be released until payment is confirmed as received, in full. Note that if any such transfer includes payment by cheque, then clearance of the cheque(s) may take a number of days to complete and may result in delay in despatching the order.
Our bank account is at Standard Bank, Helderberg branch (branch code 033012), account name Yebo Electronics, account number 072 327 863.
Please note that if you are transferring from outside the RSA, excluding Namibia, then customers should ensure that any charges made by their bank, in respect of a money transfer, are incurred by the customer and NOT by the company. This is confirmed and communicated between banks by use of the term 'O.U.R.' Alternatively, a bank draft (ie. cheque) is acceptable, as long as it is 'Drawn on Standard Bank's International Division', so ensuring that the company does not incur any charges.
Please note that an order cannot be despatched if there is a balance outstanding which is due to bank charges being incurred by the company, and which results in insufficient funds being credited to the customer's account.
Please DO NOT send cash in the post. We cannot be held responsible for any cash sent by post.
