How does Capitec Bank transfer work?
The Capitec bank transfer work as follows. You log in to your bank account and send money to your forex broker. When the broker receives your funds to a segregated account (from its own finances), they load your trading account so you could use your money to trade. Once you decide to withdraw your profits you log in to your forex broker account, click on the withdrawal button and you fill in your Capitec bank account details. Since you used Capitec bank also when you deposited your money, withdrawing should be pretty easy and without any hustle (since the forex broker already knows that the person who deposited the money is also the same who withdraws it).
Why Use Capitec Bank as Your Deposit/Withdrawal Method?
While using Capitec Bank to deposit or withdraw money from your forex broker is not as fast as when using e-wallets or credit/debit cards, this payment method has still some undeniable benefits. Among the most important ones is security. When you have a credit card, someone can physically steal it, but they can not physically steal your bank account and a chance of hacking your account is very low. The second one is acceptance. Nearly all forex brokers accept wire transfers such as Capitec Bank, but only some use other deposit and withdrawal methods.
