How does a person who wants to transfer money from one bank to another do it in Nigeria? If you are a company or individual who wants to transfer money to another person, bank or a different account for one reason or another, you can do this is a couple of ways such as the following:

1. Withdrawing cash at one bank and depositing into another
2. Writing and Paying in a cheque to the account directly as a deposit
3. Doing a direct bank to bank transfer

The third option seems to be the easiest as it saves you time, money and energy.

You can do an inter-bank fund transfer by visiting the bank and filling a fund transfer form or doing it at your home or office by making use of internet banking. You will only be charged a small fixed fee for the service.

One of the benefits of internet banking in Nigeria is that it allows you to transfer money from bank to bank without having to visit the bank.

- Log into your internet banking account using your username and password
- Go to your account
- Select the Fund transfer link
- Choose to transfer to another bank
- Enter the bank account number and bank
- Enter the amount you want to transfer
- Enter remarks about the transaction e.g. Payment for raw materials
Confirm the account details(Ensure it matches the account of the beneficiary)
- Confirm the inter-bank transfer charges. You can be charged around N145.00 for transferring N150,000.
- Click the submit button to transfer the money

How much does it cost?
========================
The cost associated with doing an inter-bank fund transfer is basically a small fixed fee and your bank will tell you how much you are being charged before doing the transaction. So instead of withdrawing cash from one bank in order to make deposits at another bank, you can save yourself the effort by simply doing an inter-bank fund transfer much safely using the internet or by visiting your bank and filling an application form.

How long does it take to do inter-bank transfer?
==========================
Well I think there are options to choose from. You can choose an immediate transfer or a 24 hr transfer. Personally, I've done such transfers before and it only took about 10 mins until I got an alert that my account has been debited by the transfer value together with the small transfer fee.

    Option N0:3 is the easiest means of interbank deposits. Very convenient to use. It saves you time, energy, risk of carrying money around (ofcourse you know whay that means) and lots more.

    You can do a money transfer from another bank to ECOBank if you want. Just go to your bank adn fill the transfer request form. It would include the bank of the receiver, the amount, your account number and signature. You can also do this with internet banking. As long as you have an account in Nigeria from any bank, you can transfer money to another person's account.

    Yes you can but it may raise some flags. To avoid that, you can transfer in bits of N1m for individual account.

    Pls How Can I Send Money 2 Someone In France?



    Re: How to transfer money from one bank to another Reply by Felix Okoli on Wednesday April 9, 2014 at 19:17:5:

    You can do that from your bank by applying for a bank wire. There would be some charges to your account and you also need to provide the bank with the bank details for France and this will include things like the bank name, swift code, recipient and so on.

    Please I wanna pay tuition fee to one university in USA from Nigeria.how do I send the money and do I have to open domicillary acct for that or will it be debited from my naira current acct.which one is the best option available.thanks



    Re: How to transfer money from one bank to another Reply by Felix Okoli on Wednesday May 21, 2014 at 12:38:42:

    You can pay with either a naira or dollar account. Just go to your bank with the school fees requirment and ask them to do a fund transfer to the bank account for the USA school on your behalf. They would charge you some fees and also use their exchange rate if it is a naira account

Re: How to transfer money from one bank to another Reply by Felix Okoli on Monday November 3, 2014 at 8:35:15:

It depends on how your friend did the transfer. If he chose to do an instant transfer, it would have worked within a few minutes but if he did a 24 hr transfer', it will be completed before the end of today.

Re: How to transfer money from one bank to another Reply by Felix Okoli on Thursday December 1, 2016 at 23:6:5:

It's possible that the transfer was not successful. Did he transfer during bank working hours. Perhaps, you should wait till the next day to confirm.
