Access Bank Introduces Dual Transaction Service (DTS) in Nigeria – Access Bank Plc has recently introduced the Dual Transaction Service (DTS) which is an improved debit card service aimed at providing customers with access to credit simultaneously. This enhancement allows pre-approved customers access a credit line via their already existing debit card.
A message from Victor Etuokwu, Executive Director, Retailing Banking, Access Bank Plc:
“This is the first time any bank in Nigeria will be providing this kind of combined essential service to its customers. We have been encouraging our customers to stay safe and connected by going cashless while using our various digital channels.
We know these are trying times and our customers may need an extra boost during this period so rather than have them go through the rigorous process of applying for a credit card, we will give them access to more funds using their existing debit cards.
This service is available to all Access bank customers who earn from N20,000 and above. Customers can also access 3 times the value of their salary during this period of restricted movement. This is a remarkable feat and we will continue to promote digital transactions and discourage branch banking until we are completely come out of the pandemic times.”
