Let us introduce ourselves


Diamond Card is about transforming people’s lives. Whether that be through providing a transaction card solution for one of the millions of unbanked in South Africa, or creating an opportunity for an entrepreneurial spirit to flourish through our reseller and rewards programmes, or removing cash from schools to allow for a safe learning environment.

Why us?


Diamond Card’s competitive advantage lies in the fact that we have an experienced team dedicated to the product, a fully developed system and ways to access your account by online banking and cellphone banking through our online portal. The Diamond Card has the backing of many established partners nationally and is backed by Mastercard Internationally, with FSCA accreditation in respect of Financial Intermediary Services in respect of Deposits as defined in the Banks Act.


The Diamond Card is a transaction card with many of the same benefits as traditional bank accounts, in particular receiving deposits, and as such there are FICA requirements that apply.

That means for each card issued a copy of an SA identity document, valid passport (for foreign nationals) or Asylum Seeker Document must be uploaded to the system along with proof of address (click here for examples of valid proof of address) and a selfie of you holding your identity document/passport in order for a card to be activated.

On activation, clients receive a username and password with which they can access the online portal or our USSD portal at the cardholder level to transfer funds, pull statements, buy airtime and so much more.

Please note Diamond Card also offers accounts to individuals who do not have a Proof of address, please click here to view our products.
