Ecobank has extended its zero charge for digital money transfers below N5,000 till the end of September.
In addition to the free charge, users of Ecobank Mobile, Ecobank Online, and USSD – Ecobank *326# will enjoy zero charge for digital money transfers below N5,000.
New customers can also benefit from this by opening an Xpress account from the comfort of their homes by simply dialing *326#.
The no charge for mobile money transfers by Ecobank began in March as part of the bank’s objective to cushion the rising spread of coronavirus.
The decision to extend the zero charge policy is hinged on the bank’s drive to encourage citizens to adopt digital banking particularly with the ongoing social distancing campaign targeted to check the spread of COVID-19. Read Also: ‘Virus pandemic will lead to better business ethics’
