Paystack Introduces UBA & Sterling Bank USSD Payment Channels

Originally published at:

As a business owner, it’s important to be able to accept payment from customers however they prefer to pay.

I’m excited to announce the introduction of two new payment options on the Paystack Checkout form. Customers can now pay Nigeria-based merchants using the United Bank for Africa *919# and Sterling Bank *822# USSD channels.

This means customers in Nigeria now have the choice of three bank options within the Pay with USSD channel: Guaranty Trust Bank, United Bank for Africa, and Sterling Bank.

How Pay with USSD works On Paystack

Once a customer of any of the three available banks selects their bank option, they’ll see the special USSD code they’ll need to dial into their phone.

Doing this will trigger an automated USSD sequence which will guide the customer through authorising the transaction from their bank account.

How to enable UBA *919# and Sterling Bank *822# Collections On Paystack

If you already have USSD enabled as a payment channel in your Paystack Dashboard, you don’t need to do a thing – UBA *919# and Sterling Bank *822# have already been enabled for you.

To confirm that you have USSD enabled, kindly visit the Preferences page of your Paystack Dashboard, and look at the “Accept payments via” section. If USSD is checked, your customers will be able to pay you via GTB *737#, UBA *919#, and Sterling Bank *822#.
