In episode 3, we discuss sending money via email or text message, an innovative feature where Ecobank Mobile users can generate a payment link from the app and share it with beneficiaries who may then direct funds to the bank account of their choice. This is a great convenience for sending money to people whose account details you do not have or when you want to surprise someone.

Hello and welcome to This Pan African Life, a video series which highlights the use of Ecobank’s Mobile App to meet your lifestyle needs across the continent.

My name is Osahon and today I am going to be talking to you about sending money via email and SMS.

Do you ever need to send money to someone, and you don’t have their account details?

Maybe you have a friend who has an urgent need for cash …or you just want to make that special someone happy?

Well you can do so with Ecobank Mobile app. You can send money to them via email, WhatsApp or SMS. The app generates a payment link which you then send to them and they can click on the link, enter the code and direct the money to whichever bank account that they choose.

So, if you need to send someone money and you don’t have their account details, don’t worry about it. Download Ecobank Mobile app and start transacting. You will be glad that you did.
