HSBC having pioneered modern day banking with innovation and convenience, announced its latest tie-up with Keells Super markets to offer customers the facility to  make cash deposits.

Through this service, HSBC customers can make cash deposits to their HSBC savings/current accounts or settle their monthly loan installments at 42 Keells Super markets, located island-wide. This is in addition to the current credit card payment facility which is made available to customers who patronise Keells Supermarkets.   

“We are pleased to expand our service of cash deposits through a widespread retail chain such as Keells Super. In a fast paced world where time is an essential commodity, everyone is looking for greater convenience. As such we hope this new service will create more value and provide customers with yet another convenient channel for banking,” HSBC Sri Lanka and Maldives Nick Nicolaou said.

The service is similar to making a credit card payment at the counter, which will allow customers to deposit cash with a maximum limit of Rs 30,000/- per transaction.  

This service which is currently offered only through the Sri Lanka Post will be made available to customers who deposit cash to their savings/current accounts or in settlement of their loan installments.

Deposits made before 4.00p.m on bank working days, will be credited to the respective account on the same day.

Keells CEO Cha-ritha Subasinghe said: “HSBC has been a key partner of Keells Super and the bond has been strengthened by the numerous campaigns and key services offered at Keells Super over the past years.

Cash Deposit facility is a first from a bank to be introduced to the retail industry and we at Keells Super are pleased to offer this service from HSBC to our valued customers thus enhancing the convenience offered to Keells Super customers.”
