Access Bank partners FinTechs to Boost Digital Payment

Herbert Wigwe, CEO, Access Bank

ACCESS Bank Plc is collaborating with PayAttitude and Unified Payments to provide another payment solution called ‘PayAttitude Digital’. PayAttitude Digital is a smart, trendy and convenient mobile app that enables Access Bank account holders to use just their phone number for transactions at the Automated Teller Machines, web and Point of Sale terminals.

It also allows Access Bank merchants and customers to receive payments using their mobile phone numbers across different e-payment channels. A statement from the bank states that “Access bank customers will enjoy other benefits including request for a payment/transfer, ATM withdrawal, PoS payments and collection of membership dues, tithes and offerings.”

They can also be used by staff, friends and family members to withdraw cash at the ATM and buy items at physical and online shops, approve or decline transactions from anywhere they are.

Customers would also have access to cost-effective and stress-free agency banking. In this regard, individuals and businesses can now register themselves as agents and begin to pay cash and receive deposits using their personal devices anywhere.

Herbert Wigwe, group managing director, Access Bank, said, “This is a leading-edge payment solution that will ensure Access Bank customers enjoy unique and convenient banking services. Customers can send and receive cash, initiate third party payments, pay physical and online merchants and so much more. Individual users can simply download the app from the Appstore (Play store and Apple store) on their devices while merchants can be set up remotely.

“At Access Bank, we are committed to simplifying the lives of our customers and this is evident through the number of innovative solutions that we make available to them. Our customers are our priority and their convenience remains our focus,” he said.

Titilayo Olubiyi, country manager, PayAttitude, remarked that with PayAttitude Digital, no visit to bank branch was required to enabled it. “It is all self-service from customer’s device. Likewise, it guarantees higher security level as PIN will no longer be entered on the POS, ATM or Web but now on the personal device of customers.”

She further stated that with PayAttitude Digital, customers would be able to take control of all their transactions. Olubiyire reiterated that Access Bank accountholders could now do transactions securely by themselves or through family, friends and staff by using their mobile phones as payment remote control to authorise the transactions from wherever the accountholder may be anywhere in the world.

All these and more are made possible by the digital innovation of PayAttitude which has been granted the patent for the technology. It leverages the ubiquity of phone number and handheld devices.
