Checking of one’s bank account balance via mobile banking can be done on all network-enabled mobile devices. Some methods make use of internet, while others make use of simple sms. It is recommended for one to know how to use all the available platforms for accessing one’s account, so that in a moment of need and/or desperation where internet services are unavailable, one would still exercise other options to get the need met.
The two major ways through which a bank customer can access his or her bank account to view the account balance and probably carry out a few other transactions are:
- Through the bank’s mobile banking application. Most banks now have mobile banking applications available to their customers on various smartphone platforms. They are free to be downloaded and installed, and through them customers can check their account balances and also perform basic transactions like money transfers, bill payment, airtime recharge, and etcetera. To download Stanbic IBTC bank’s mobile banking application, simply log on to the application store linked to your mobile device; that is, log on to Google Playstore if you use an android device, and log on to the Apple iOs store if you use Apple devices, and so on. It is most likely unavailable on Blackberry world for Blackberry users.
- You can access your bank account and view your balance via the bank’s special USSD code. USSD stands for Unstructured Supplementary Service Data. A USSD code is a special code which links one to the bank’s personalized portal. Every bank has their own unique USSD code through which one can access the services they have to offer on their mobile banking platform. To access your Stanbic IBTC bank account via USSD, simply dial *909#. A number of options is then made available to you; you then only have to select the right option to access the product or service you desire.
