Zenith Bank Plc, one of Nigeria’s most innovative and service focused banks has announced an upgrade of its *966*0# account opening USSD string to now support account opening with just your BVN (Bank Verification Number) and Date of Birth.
*966*0# is one of the offerings available on Zenith Bank’s *966# EazyBanking; a service that enables the Bank’s customers to perform electronic banking transactions with any phone (smart and feature) without needing data. Such transactions include airtime purchase, money transfers to zenith and other bank accounts, bill payments, debit card restriction, account opening and lots more.
With this new upgrade, Nigerians can now open a Zenith Bank account with ZERO Naira, receive their Account Number and start performing transactions in a matter of minutes, without having to visit the bank for documentation. Account opening requirements via this service are simply your BVN and Date of Birth.
A web version of this offering is also available on the Bank’s website www.zenithbank.com, where people only need to select the ‘Instantly Activated Account’ option and provide their BVN and Date of Birth to open a fully active Zenith Bank Account with ZERO Naira.
