United Bank for Africa (UBA) provides exceptional mobile banking services to its customers. In years past, all UBA customers were required to physically visit the bank as often as they needed – either to get specific information, or to perform certain transactions. This period was very strenuous and frustrating, as customers would often wait for hours on end, just to get attention from bank staff. This, and many others, led to the introduction of mobile banking to the Nigerian banking sector.
Nowadays, customers can access their accounts to get information and monitor their account activity from the comfort of their homes or offices. More so, they can even carry out basic transactions on their account without ever stepping into their bank branch. All they need is a network-enabled mobile phone! Note that, not all bank transactions are available on the mobile banking platform: only basic transactions like account balance inquiry, airtime recharge, and local funds transfer are provided.
Mobile banking is multi-dimensional. There are quite a number of different ways you can access your account without going to the bank. One is by downloading the bank’s mobile banking application software from your mobile device’s application store. It is usually available for free, and once you download it, you only need to configure it, and then you’re good to go! A more common method of accessing the mobile banking feature is the USSD (Unstructured Supplementary Service Data) portal. The USSD portal makes use of special shortcodes unique to every bank. To access your bank’s mobile banking feature using USSD channel, simply dial their special USSD code from your registered phone number and follow the prompts.
