Ecobank Transfer Code USSD: The ultimate guide on how to transfer money from Ecobank to other Nigerian Banks using USSD code.
First and foremost, I’m not a huge fan of Ecobank Nigeria. What am I saying? I’m not a fan of any kind.
Granted, they were the first bank account i ever had, frankly also the worst. I guess my greatest vexation about their services was the fact that back then (don’t know about now), their Mastercard was as good as useless when it came to online purchases. What sort of Mastercard is that one?
I mean, my blogging adventures were practically stagnated for months because I couldn’t pay for website hosting via credit card.
Anyway, bygones are bygones. I’m with GTBank now (Oops! That just slipped.).

How to register and activate Ecobank transfer USSD code in Nigeria
Before you go ahead to register, remember that for every transaction you do, a transaction fee of N70 naira will be deducted from your bank account along with the amount you’re transferring.
Now that that’s out of the way, let’s proceed with registration:
Step 1: Dial *326# using the phone number you used to register your Ecobank account.
Step 2: There’s an option that says “transfer funds”. Select it.
Step 3: Enter the account number of the recipient and select their bank.
Step 4: Confirm the full name of the recipient and select next.
Step 5: Enter your PIN or the last 4 digits on your ATM card to confirm your transaction (you know the drill).
Once you’ve successfully passed this stage, you’ll receive a debit alert confirming your transfer.
