Herein, you will discover the Access Bank transfer USSD codes for sending money to any bank in Nigeria. Not only sending money, there is more for you to find out here. Just read on.

In line with the cashless economy policy and in a bid to making mobile banking more effortless, a lot of measures have been put in place. Not only do we now have internet banking in place, we’d also have mobile banking via the use of the official banking app, and via USSD codes.

Unlike the internet banking and mobile banking app, internet service isn’t required. What that means is, you can send money from your account bank account to another bank without internet service.
