The Fidelity Bank transfer code is basically a 5-digit USSD pin that enables any customer of the bank who has a registered phone number with them, conduct simple banking transactions on their mobile phones.
So unlike the Fidelity Mobile banking app, the USSD option doesn’t require you to have an internet connection. Any random “I pass my neighbor”, black and white, blue screened, as fat-as-a-brick cell phone can run that package.
Alright. Now that we’ve gotten that cleared up, to all those Nigerians out there who think transferring money from your Fidelity Bank account to other banks or another bank is all you can do with the transfer code, you’re in for a shocker!
Here are other benefits you get from this service you probably didn’t know (Bullet point No.5 is the best!):
- Easy, simple, fast and convenient
- You can now pay your Bills with ease.
- Change your PIN.
- Check your Balance Enquiry.
- Update your BVN.
- Probably the maddest benefit – You can block your stolen ATM cards.
- Choose SMS and email alerts feature.
- Transaction process is less than 20 seconds
- The Service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
- The service is available to Airtel, Etisalat, GLO and MTN subscribers
They say everything with an advantage also has a disadvantage.
In light of that, here’s also some limitations you get from using this service you probably didn’t know…until now:
- Your daily recharge limit is N20,000 daily
- Your maximum daily transfer limit is N100,000
- Doesn’t require internet, however, it is dependent on full network signal from your telecom provider (sucks if you’re using Glo! Haha!).
Bullet point No.1 is quite reasonable, don’t you think? I really don’t see why they say it’s a limitation.
Unless of course you have containers swimming on the high sea from China, wetin you wan use N20,000 recharge card daily for? It used to be just N5,000 before. What happened to this country?
