Some Mobile banking transactions you can perform on your phone without Internet

Last Updated on July 30, 2016

Banking just got very easy at your fingertips! You can now perform mobile banking transactions on your phone with your registered mobile number in any USSD supported Nigerian banks. But remember “You cannot cash out or deposit money on your phone”! I think I’m a bit relieved from making you believe you can do everything including ejecting money from your phone.

There are cool transactions that you could do with your phones without considering whether it is a China, Tecno, Original phones or iPhone. What these Nigerian banks require from you is that mobile phone number you registered with them during your account opening. ie. The number you use to receive credit/debit alerts. No internet! In other to perform some of these mobile banking transactions on your phone, you should update your valid mobile number with your bank.

Some of these mobile banking transactions allow new and existing customers to either open a new account, check balance, transfer funds, recharge airtime, withdraw cash without ATM cards, Change PIN, Link BVN etc. Dear, do you need to worry about going to customer care again? I guess a big NO.
