Let's talk about how to do mobile money transfer using codes. Access Bank has a USSD code for mobile money transfers both to Access Bank and other banks accounts. This code is *901#. This code opens a special menu where you can do all the operations you need. There are also a few more variants of this code for some operations.

They are almost the same as for Access bank transfers, but instead of “1” you should press “2”. For example, now you will need to dial *901*2*6000*1234567890#. In the second way of making the transfer, you also need to dial *901# and press the button “2” twice. Then enter last four digits of BVN.
