How much time per week do you spend paying bills? How many different apps do you use? And how many bank accounts and cards do you shuffle through for every bill?

What if there is an easier and more convenient way to do this on just one platform?

iRecharge is a first-of-its-kind bill payment platform that lets users pay frequent utility bills through the use of a unique and permanent NUBAN account number assigned to the utility.

With iRecharge you can pay bills smartly from the comfort of your home or on-the-go, directly into the utility bill’s assigned bank account number, at no extra cost.

Other bill payment platforms require you to enter your card details, fill forms and pay a convenience fee of N100 for every transaction. On iRecharge, all you have to do is to send money into the bank account of the specific utility and you get value for the money sent in the form of units or tokens and renewed cable TV subscriptions. The entire process takes less than 60 seconds.

 How to get a permanent bank account number for your utility

Step 1: Go here: 

Step 2: Select the service you want to get a bank account number for and enter its corresponding meter or smart card number.

Step 3: Enter your phone number and email address to receive notification details. Note that these notification details can be updated at any time.

And that’s it! You’ve got your utility’s permanent bank account number. Save it as a beneficiary on your banking platform or phone contact for future payments.

You can also use the USSD code *6606*1*# or reach out via WhatsApp to 090-9666-6612 to retrieve your own account number.
