Customers can open and fund a 9pay account by dialing *500# or visiting 9pay.com.ng. All funds are securely warehoused and monitored by UBA Plc. Alternatively, they can complete this process while they are in the play store.
9pay customers will also be able to use their accounts to pay for an exciting array of services online like lottery, collect change digitally and pay for web services. This great new step also ensures that local developers of apps and games will find it infinitely easier to monetise their offerings.
Chief Product and Information Officer, 9mobile, Otuyemi Otule, noted that 9mobile was happy to expand its mobile payment solutions in Nigeria, which has a combination of a highly unbanked and highly mobile-first population.
He added that 9mobile’s 9pay offers millions of consumers a means of making important financial transactions, including sending and receiving money, receiving change from merchants, topping up air-time and much more.
