Using Verve, Visa or MasterCards 

Access Bank

You can conduct internet banking using only Verve, Visa or Mastercard ATM. For most people, this method is ideal for purchasing good and services, making transfers, and paying bills online.

However, there are differences between these cards:

  • Access Bank debit Verve card allows you to make payments directly from your account (only in Nigeria).
  • Access Bank Credit Visa card is a dual-currency denominated payment card which allows you spend and settle in naira for domestic transactions while all your international transactions are billed and settled in US dollars.
  • Access Bank Prepaid Card is a multi-currency reloadable payment card used for transactions across multiple channels and is available in four currencies; NGN, GBP, USD, and Euro; the card is accepted globally.

Once you get permission from any branch of Access Bank to use any of the ATM cards for online transactions, you can simply fill in your card number and security code for easy internet banking.
