What happens if you do not withdraw the total amount of the voucher? If you transacted with a cash voucher, your change will be added to your cash balance.
HOW TO BUY FROM A PARTICIPATING STORE WITH YOUR NSFAS WALLET?
If you want to buy (pay for) goods at participating stores, create a cash voucher (see below for steps) to pay for goods in-store at Shoprite, Usave, Checkers, SPAR, Choppies, Boxer, Van Schaiks, Nando’s, Romans Pizza, McDonalds, Burger King, Spur, Hungry Lion, Debonairs, Rocomamas and John Dorys, amongst others.
