How To Make Interswitch Payments Using Your Mobile Phone

How To Make Interswitch Payments Using Your Mobile Phone

Making payments using your mobile phone can be a real headache. Trust me, I know. From USSD codes to apps and even websites, everything misbehaves at one point or the other. Imagine you’re in a difficult position and you quickly need to make a payment using your mobile phone but wait… all the village people you never knew you had will just choose that moment to mess things up for you. That’s when your USSD code will say, “connection problem or invalid MMI code”.  Frustrating, right?

But what if I told you that carrying out transactions via your mobile phone has just been made easier? Yes! And the secret is Interswitch.

Before I continue, you might be thinking; “What can Interswitch do for me that my codes and payment apps can’t do?”, or even, “What is Interswitch?”.  

Interswitch is a digital payments and commerce company that is focused on the exchange of value between individuals and organizations. Their job, basically, is to make money go around the world faster in a timely manner that ensures customer satisfaction. So, rest assured that while your USSD codes, apps, websites, and even ATMs might go on a vacation, Interswitch will always be there for you with their reliable and secure service. The company also provides third-party processing and solutions that include payment, funds disbursement, retail management, industry solutions, hardware, and consumer products.

For consumer products, (which is really the focus of this article), Interswitch has provided products like Quickteller, Verve, and Pay Direct to make transfers and other financial transactions easier and more convenient for you and me. Fantastic, isn’t it?

So, how do you make Interswitch payments using your mobile phone?

Let’s start with Quickteller from Interswitch. This payment platform lets you pay bills, recharge your sim cards, donate money to a cause, and even take care of state government payments with ease. From paying your DSTv to GOTv, and PHCN IEDC bills, Quickteller has got you covered.  

Quickteller also offers you a variety of options to use for transactions. These options include eCash, the Quickteller App and the Quickteller website and they can all be accessed from your mobile phone. eCash is a Quickteller initiative that creates an e-wallet for you where you can carry out financial transactions without having to download an app.  To make Interswitch payments using eCash, just dial *322# and it will take you to the Quickteller interface. You’ll see options to recharge, transfer money, and make other transactions all numbered. If you’d like to recharge, press 1; if you want to transfer money, press 2; and so on. Easy, isn’t it?

You can also download the Quickteller app if you’re an app person. All you need to do is go to your Google Play Store, Apple Play Store or your Blackberry App World and download it. Voila! You’re ready to make transactions. The third option is to log on to www.quickteller.com using your phone’s browser and then carry out whatever transactions you’d like with the list of options available to you. But, one thing you can notice with these is that Interswitch tries to offer simple, smart, and convenient solutions.

So, if you’re looking for the easiest way to make payments without being frustrated in the process, Interswitch is still your best and most reliable option. You can check out their website at https://connect.interswitchng.com/ for more details.
