Frequently asked

Who is eligible to use Edge?
Edge is a business banking service for accountants and entrepreneurs who have an accountant.
We provide accountants with direct access to their entrepreneurs' banking information via a Power of Accountant mandate (PoA) that we will set up with the entrepreneur. Once this has been completed, the accountant can contact us directly to access information that they require to perform their accounting duties for the entrepreneur. This will save time for both the accountant and the entrepreneur and will ensure that the accountant has the right information in the correct format.
If your client is a Standard Bank customer, they can register on the Edge website. If your client is not a Standard Bank customer, you can complete the form on this website and a DSA consultant will get in touch with you to assist you.
We will give you a holding response within an hour and provide a first resolution within two hours. However, if it’s after 20:00, we will only be able to offer a resolution at 07:00 the following day.
Edge is a Standard Bank proposition. Edge runs on Standard Bank’s core infrastructure and utilises its ATM and branch network.
DSA stands for Delightful Service Arena. When you sign up, you are assigned a dedicated DSA consultant that will be your single point of contact into the bank for your personal and business banking.
