USSD Banking Platform Upgraded

October 22, 2020

Our USSD platform - *202# - has been upgraded to give clients an improved digital banking experience.

Clients can now enjoy dual currency functionality and transact from both USD and ZWL accounts.  We have also enabled USD to ZWL currency swaps through the embedded Virtual Bureau de Change function.

Other enhancements on the upgraded USSD platform include:

  • Access to mini statements on ZWL and USD accounts.
  • Creation and management of beneficiaries for airtime purchases, bill payments and funds transfers.
  • Masked account numbers and other security enhancements. 
  • A fresh look with grouping of transaction types for ease of navigation.

Clients can also continue to enjoy other banking conveniences that were always available on the platform.  Some of these are the ability to change their USSD banking PIN, block and unblock NBS ATM/debit cards, make bill payments, register for and transact on an Ecocash wallet as well as do internal and ZIPIT funds transfers.

For the convenience of existing clients who were registered for the previous service, automatic migration was done onto the enhanced USSD platform.  All that remains is to dial *202#, start transacting and enjoy an upgraded banking experience.
