This time, through WhatsApp. This is coming after UBA released the same Feature not long ago, being the first to do so.

How great would it be if you could chat with Access bank on WhatsApp and have then carried out transactions for you? Well, that is now a reality with the Access WhatsApp Banking feature.

Want to do all this from WhatsApp? Follow the instructions below.
