24/7 Online Support
Our dedicated online banking support team are always available to offer assistance with training, beneficiary loading, pin resets and other operational support. Call them on xxxxx for help or if you suspect your account has been interfered with.
Q: Is online banking secure?
A: The security of our service is our top priority. Our online banking site is encrypted and is accessed through your secret login number and pin. In addition to encryption and access control, there are user-defined controls that allow limited access e.g. view-only, beneficiary loading and payment submission. Always practice safe online banking, never access your bank account via an emailed link and never share your details with anyone electronically or telephonically, even if they claim to be from Grobank.
Q: How do I sign up for an online banking account?
A: Once you’ve opened an account with us you can select the internet banking login option followed by the New User Enrolment icon. Complete the enrolment application form and submit. We will then perform a validation of your details against the information we have on record, to ensure your security. After successful registration, your pin will be available for collection at your business suite or from your Relationship Manager.
Q: Does online banking save money?
A: Yes, viewing your balances and downloading statements are free services. You will only be charged a monthly subscription fee once you’ve registered, thereafter fees are payable as you transact. All of the applicable fees can be found in our pricing guide available on the Rates and Fees page.
Q: What other electronic banking services do you offer?
A: The Athena Payment System is specifically designed to cater for an Agri business’s bulk / batch payment requirements. Easy to install, this system provides you with a complete database on the payment history of all your transactions. Similarly to online banking, beneficiaries are created and stored on the system for payment. The system runs a validation on the beneficiary account numbers and branch codes whilst looking for duplicate transactions within the same batch. Once information is verified and authorised by you, it’s uploaded to Grobank for distribution into the various beneficiary accounts. This system provides an audit trail of transactions plus an invoice for the service fees and details of the funding account.
To access you’ll be charged a monthly subscription fee after having registered, thereafter fees are payable as you transact. All of the applicable fees can be found in our pricing guide available on the Rates and Fees page.
Our word is yours.
