    How can i transfer from my eco account to another bank?

    I think you ought to spare a moment to clarify the express account issue before instructing we go to the nearest branch. The whole idea behind the online dealings in the first place I believe is to short circuit the frequency of bank visits/queueing I believe

    This is quite frustrating. Admin talks as if we don’t know we have bank branches we may visit. I am in agreement with @ipalibo. The point is defeated if after asking for a simple clarification here I am referred back to the bank. There is still a lot for the bank to do if simple crediting of a phone line requires one to go to the bank. Very soon our mumu go do oo.

    I am still asking. What is this PIN thing and what is this express account thing?

  14. // Reply

    Please, the mobile money PIN is not that of ATM. This PIN is given to you on registration, which you can easily change. It is a 6 digit PIN. To register, simply dial *326# and follow the on-screen instruction and you will com to the point where the PIN will be given to you.

    As for the Xpress Account, this is registered when using a mobile app not when registering a mobile number. Ecobank has mobile banking via App, which should be downloaded; and mobile banking via USSD( for ordinary phone. I hope this is helpful.
