        Technology has had an impact on every Nigeria Space And Sector, ranging from Automobiles, Education, Telecommunications, Businesses, Agriculture to several others.

        Since Technology came to the fore in Nigeria, there hasn’t been any form of relenting from its benefits.

        The Banking Sector is not left out; it has had its own fair share of its innovations.

        Which brings us to the topic - How To Transfer Money, Buy Airtime And Check Bank Balance Using Your Phone For Nigeria Banks.

        “Mr. Man, didn't you meet other persons here on queue?”

        “God! I’m tired of being on this queue, it’s frustrating.”

        “It’s not like I want to make a withdrawal, I only want to make a transfer.”

        The aforementioned and several other complaints you probably might have had personally, or heard others make in a banking hall… and it’s frustrating for anybody.

        Are you tired of making such complaints? Are you tired of queueing up at a banking hall or ATM? There’s a solution.

        All thanks to technological innovations, banking is no longer limited to banking halls. Who needs a bank when you could actually pay bills, transfer funds, check bank balance et al, all by yourself?

        The good news is that it doesn’t require a technical guru neither does it require an internet connection to do this. You just need a phone with which you can dial a code and you're good to go.

        What’s this simple means to easy banking? It’s called USSD Mobile Banking. A form of banking which offers you ability to bank from the convenience of your home or office.


        bank-transfer-codes-and-bank-balance-check

        Before I proceed further, let’s take a tour through the evolutions in banking.

        In those days, you literally need to visit the bank for every transactions (check bank balance, transfer money, pay bills), which was stressful to bank officials and customers alike.

        To tackle this problem, technology provided a solution - Automated Teller Machines (ATM). It eased the stress of banking.

        It evolved to a phase where E-Banking (mobile banking using internet and mobile applications) was introduced. And now, USSD Banking (mobile banking with no internet connection required).

        Transition In summary:
        Traditional Banking → Internet Banking → USSD Banking

        Let’s delve into the topic proper

        What’s USSD Banking?

        USSD (Unstructured Supplementary Service Data) is a GSM communication technology used to send text messages between a mobile phone and an application programmer in the owner’s network - Wikipedia

        USSD Banking is a type of banking which enables the performing of bank operations by dialing a code - Vanguard Nigeria

        IS IT TECHNICAL? IS IT SOMETHING I CAN DO BY MYSELF?

        As I’ve stated earlier, it’s neither complicated nor technical. You can do it all by yourself as long as you’ve got a phone.

        Haven noted the meaning and benefits of USSD banking, What Are These Bank Transfer Codes? How Do I Transfer Money From One Bank To Another? How Do I Purchase Airtime From My Bank Using This Means? How Do I Check My Bank Account Balance? How True Is This? Is It Really Possible Without An Internet Access?

        It’s very possible. Okay… enough said, let me clear your doubts.
