The Guarantee Trust Bank has introduced the CODE ‘737’ to enable its customer transact without requiring data services on their phone.
Built on the Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) interface, GTBank’s 737 banking is phone agnostic and works on any type of mobile phone and does not require internet access or registration protocols.
USSD is a technology that allows users to access various services through the use of short codes. It usually consists of number that start with * and end with #. PayAsYouGo customers often use USSD codes to load airtime
The Managing Director, Segun Agbaje said, “With Bank 737, GTBank customers can perform banking functions such as transfers to all banks in Nigeria, check account balance, open a GTBank account, buy airtime, pay bills, BVN linking, token code generation, card less withdrawals and lots more from their mobile phones.”
