Quickteller – Buy Airtime, Pay Bills and Transfer Funds Easily Online with your ATM Card

A lot has been said about Nigerian cashless economy since the turn of last year. While the government seems to delay the implementation of this service, Quickteller has given us a taste of what it means to go cashless.

Quickteller is a company based in Nigeria that allows Nigerians to buy airtime and pay bills online using their ATM card. The website has been around for some time but came to the interest of EwtNet only a few months ago, after the company added MasterCard NG to their list of payment means.

What Quickteller can do for you?

While a lot of Nigerians are already acquainted to buying airtime through ATM centers, you can ignore the long queue and and follow the shortcut: Quickteller allows you to easily top up your airtime balance online through your account dashboard. Currently supported mobile carriers include:
  • MTN Top-up (Prepaid)

Apart from topping up and paying bills, Nigerians can as well transfer funds or receive funds to their back account directly from Quickteller.

The service saves you a tremendous amount of time, easy to use, mobile friendly and does not apply additional charges to paying bills and buying airtime.

The Down Side

In all ways but one, Quickteller has proven to be flawless in delivering efficient and quality service to Nigerian residents. To help you remember your card details, you can add your mobile phone number to your account. However, as Salvador Dalí rightly placed it, “Have no fear of perfection – you’ll never reach it.” Quickteller has confirmed that it’s no candidate to bridge that saying as the company show it’s own lapses.
Time and time again, Nigerian shopping malls seems to go clueless when it comes to payment processing. Quickkteller, is once again a victim of this circumstances: The payment processor is currently limited to the use of MasterCard and Verve ATM cards. This implies that users whose ATM card parade the VISA logo has no place in Quickteller. You should also be aware that your international MasterCard will not be accepted. However, it is my beleive that this service will be improved sooner rather than later.
