All Mobile Banking Transaction With USSD Code Now Capped At N100,000 Daily Limit

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) have mandated all commercial banks in the country to set a daily limit of N100,000 for all transactions carried out through mobile Unstructured Supplementary Service Data popularly known as USSD code mobile banking platform.

This was in the wake of heightened security risks involved in carrying out transactions of higher amount through the mobile USSD code channel.

Prior to now and due to absence of set rules in the use of USSD mobile transactions, different banks have set their own rules with different daily transaction limits ranging from N200,000 to as high as N1,000,000.
