How to Buy Airtime Directly from all Banks in Nigeria
Gone are those days where someone has to go to a phone booth center to buy airtime and he/she meet a crowd, has to wait for his or her turn before buying airtime. Technology has really made things so easy. And banks has also found ways to ease the stress of someone going outside to buy airtime.
Imagine if no one is selling airtime in your area or street. You have to trek to wherever they are selling airtime to buy. So imagine if you just need N100 airtime, you will just stress yourself trekking or postpone the buying until when you have somewhere going before you will buy the credit.
Now with a mobile phone or an ATM card, you can buy any amount of airtime from any banks in Nigeria. You don't need to memorize any code to buy airtime again. I personally use 4 banks. How can I memorize each code assuming I want to buy airtime from any of the banks?
I introduce to you one solution for all those code memorizing.
Quicktellet is an online payment processing service that helps in making payment of cash as fast as it could. It can be used to pay any bills ranging from DSTV subscription, fund transfer, buying of airtime etc. It is very fast, reliable and secure anytime, anyday. Now, there are two different ways of using quickteller. You can use it with the internet enable phone or you can use any bank ATM.
Using Quickteller via the Internet
Using quickteller via the internet on your phone. Kindly visit www.quickteller.com and sign up using a name, email address and a phone number. Within 3 minutes with a fast network you're done with signing up. I would prefer using the desktop version. It is easier and understandable. There is an option below the site but you can still use the mobile view.
At the landing page, you will see several options such as;
- Airtel Bill Payment
- DSTV subscription
- Swift 4G subscription
- MTN direct top-up
- Visafone Direct top-up
- Smile Communication Nigeria
- Airtel Mobile Top up
- Etisalat Recharge Top up
- Glo Quick Recharge
As you click any of the network you want to recharge, you will be ask to insert your phone number and amount and you click on next and confirm it. There is also an option code at the header on that platform if you just prefer using the code.
Quickteller via ATM
Go to any bank ATM and slot in your debit or credit card. Insert your pin. Punch airtime recharge and quickteller will load. Then punch the network, choose the amount and phone number. Confirm it and your phone is loaded immediately. You will also receive an alert from your bank that the amount of airtime you just loaded was withdrawn from your account for airtime recharge.
But if this process is too long for you and you may find going to the ATM or browsing via internet is not conducive for you, then let switch to the code part. I think you will need to memorize or get a piece of paper and write down the one concerning your bank.
