United Bank for Africa transfer code or UBA code to transfer money; whichever way you choose to call it, it translates to the same thing. USSD codes have made banking much easier and more convenient. Its relevance cannot be over-emphasized. Just like Stanbic Bank’s banking USSD code, that of UBA is easy to use and fast. UBA bank coined their banking shortcode – The Magic Number. It works like magic if and only if you have things in order and money is in your account. What we mean by having things in order is that UBA USSD codes work from only the mobile number registered to your account. i.e., no other phone number apart from your number in the bank’s database can initiate bank transactions on your account. See it as a security protocol.
All you need is a registered SIM from any network in Nigeria (MTN, 9mobile – (R.I.P. Etisalat), Glo, Airtel, Ntel, Smile, etc.) as the number associated with your account and an actively funded UBA bank account. Afterward, you can utilize the UBA mobile money transfer USSD code on the number registered with your UBA account.
Note: If you misplaced the number associated with your bank account, you should notify our bank and change it to a currently active one. If not for anything, so that at least you can monitor your bank account activity.
A lot of benefit lies around using UBA mobile transfer codes – it works on all phones, is fast and convenient, allows you to send money to accounts to any Nigerian bank, allows for higher transaction limits of up to N1m per day and opening of new account – an addendum.
