Access Bank Plc has rewarded its mobile banking customers in Nigeria with “Download and Win promo” for using and downloading its groundbreaking mobile banking app.
According to the bank, the move will encourage mobile banking customers to use electronic payment channels.
With the new app, customers can use their mobile device to manage their money and enjoy access to their accounts 24 hours seven-days-a-week anywhere.
Rita Erumosele, Access Bank’s Head of Mobile Financial Services, said the app allows customers to review detailed account activity, transfer funds between accounts, check account balances, cancel pending payments and update bills payment.
Three suitable mobile banking alternatives are available to select from, which include sms texting where customers can send and get fast account information through text messages securely without signing in. Others include current account activity and help, says Erumosele.
“To download the app, you are only required to visit ‘App Store’ in a mobile device and look for Access Bank. After clicking on ‘Download’, you can click ‘Yes’ to permit the app utilize your current location. Once the app is downloaded, it is now ready for use,” she said.
She further mentioned that a user is only required to click on ‘Register’, key in a ten-digit account number and click ‘Continue’ to register on the platform. Afterwards, the user will receive on his mobile number, which is registered with the bank, six digits authentication code.
“Put the six-digit code inside the ‘Authentication Code’ box and select a unique user identity and password that you can easily memorize. Once registration is complete, banking services are now ready for use,” Erumosele said.
According to Erumosele, downloading the smartphone app gives users quick and free access to account information such as transferring funds, getting balances and paying bills.
One of the award recipients, Olufohunsi Tolulope, said the app is user-friendly and that 90 percent of his transactions went through.
“For approximately six months now, I use my phone to transfer money, purchase recharge cards and pay bills using the same channel,” stated Tolulope.
