In this post, you are shown how to pay your Edgars accounts via FNB in as many ways as possible. The methods include paying your account via cellphone banking, the FNB app, online banking, or the ATM. If you are still unsure of the above methods, you can always make a payment at any FNB branch, but you must do this with good timing as you don’t want to make a late payment.
As a recommendation, it would be nice if FNB had a ‘Scan and Pay’ function on their ATMs such as ABSA ATMs. This would make payments to Edgars easier and more convenient.
