How to pay your bills

​​How do I pay my municipal account?

Paying your municipal account on time is quick and easy, thanks to a range of hassle-free ways Drakenstein Municipality has arranged for you to settle your bill. You can choose from:

EasyPay is linked to all the major retail stores and for your convenience, municipal accounts can be paid at any one of the following: Shoprite, Ackermans, Pick n Pay, Woolworths, Checkers, Spar, Game and PEP.
Please quote your EasyPay number as indicated on your monthly billing statement to make a payment. If you require any assistance, contact EasyPay at 021 680 0100.

Pay@ provides an opportunity for you to conveniently pay your municipal account while scanning a QR code which takes you to a secure integrated digital billing platform.
Well-known, secure and nationally trusted applications such as Zapper and SnapScan are also available to Drakenstein Municipality consumers so that you can conveniently pay your municipal account in the comfort of your own home.
With all applications, please use your municipal account number to successfully complete your transaction. If you require any assistance, contact Pay@ at 021 886 5557.
Debit Order

For more details on debit orders, call the Municipality at:
•   Paarl                     021 807 6255
•   Wellington             021 807 6272
Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) or Direct Banking

For your convenience, Drakenstein Municipality has arranged with all banking institutions to pre-list our banking details for EFTs. This means you can select our banking details by typing in DRAKENSTEIN on your preferred Internet banking website and quoting your 12-digit account number as reference. If you have used this option in the past, the banking details would have automatically been changed to ensure a smooth transition from our previous bankers.
The bank-approved beneficiary is listed with all banking institutions as follows:

Banking institutionBank-approved beneficiary
NedbankDrakenstein Billing Receipts
AbsaDrakenstein Municipality
First National Bank (FNB)Drakenstein Municipality
Standard BankDrakenstein Municipality
Capitec BankDrakenstein Local Municipality

 Please take note of the following when making these types of payments:

​You must use your 12-digit account number as reference for your payment. For example, if the account reference on your statement is 012 345 678 910, then the reference for payment(s) should be 0123454678910. The “0" at the beginning of the account number MUST be included. If the incorrect reference is used, you may be held liable for interest charged on overdue accounts due to payments not being allocated timeously to the correct account. 

Payments from any banking institution (Absa, Standard Bank, Capitec Bank, FNB or others) will normally take two working days to reflect in the Municipality's bank account. To avoid being charged interest, please ensure that your payment is scheduled accordingly. For example, if payment is required by the 15th day of each month, please ensure that your payment is transferred, using any banking institution other than Nedbank, by the 13th day of the month. If the 13th falls on a weekend or public holiday, ensure that the payment is transferred two working days before the weekend or public holiday.  
For more information, contact the Municipality's banking section at 021 807 4839 or 021 807 6220.
