Ecobank has emphasized its commitment to fostering seamless cross-border business and financial transactions through the implementation of Foreign Currency transfer services on the Ecobank Mobile and Omnilite apps.
The primary objective is to facilitate and promote convenient international trade interactions, highlighting its potential to greatly benefit both individuals and small enterprises across Africa.
Ecobank Nigeria has recently announced a significant enhancement to its services, allowing its customers to execute rapid money transfers to 33 African nations within the Ecobank Group’s operational network.
This service leverages the Ecobank Mobile and Omnilite apps, ensuring that recipients promptly receive funds in their respective local currencies.
The Head of Consumer Banking at Ecobank Nigeria, Korede Demola-Adeniyi, has underlined that this introduction aligns with the ongoing advancements within the banking sector. Notably, individuals holding domiciliary accounts with the bank can effortlessly initiate transfers of up to $10,000 per transaction without any impediments.
“While cash transfers are restricted to $10,000 per day, there are no such restrictions for international transfers that are not funded by foreign currency cash. Let the boundaries of your finances be effortlessly broadened with Ecobank,” she added.
