Transaction Limits and deductibles

Just like any transaction done using the USSD, it attracts a fee of 10 Naira. There’s also a threshold limit to the amount you can recharge per day set at N5,000 and N20,000 per month (except you are one Business Mogul who is keeping tabs on his containers from China on the sea, I don’t see you using N20k airtime in one month dear).

Also please take note. Don’t be in a hurry to recharge airtime for yourself or another number. Recharges are nonreversible. You get what I mean?

It means if you wanted to recharge 500 and mistakenly added one more zero to make 5000, there’s no begging Polaris Bank customer care to cancel that transaction. Na you and yourself go chop that 5k credit anyhow you wan chop am.
