4. Pay at ATM Near You
There is a quick and easy tutorial on Nairabet website on how to fund your account with any ATM machine near you. Here’s the tutorial as it is on their ‘Deposit’ page.
The things you need are your ATM card and your Nairabet customer identification number. Not your username. You know the ATM deals with numbers and not letters.
To get your customer ID, log into your Nairabet account and take a look at it at the top right hand side of the page.
Once you are ready, go to the nearest ATM. Insert your ATM card and enter your PIN. After that, this type of page will open. Select Quickteller. If you cannot find that, you can select Pay Bills.
Please note that some ATMs at some GTB branches will show “Fund Wallet”. Select it and it will show “Fund GT Wallet” or “Fund Other Wallets”. Select “Fund Other Wallets” and it will lead you to the next page.
Then select Others
The machine will now ask you to enter your merchant code. The code you will enter will depend on the amount you want to fund your NairaBET.com account with. Here are the codes.
N1,000 – 55601
N2,000 – 55602
N3,000 – 55603
N4,000 – 55604
N5,000 – 55605
And so on.
If you want to fund more than N5,000 or any other amount you want enter the code 55606. The machine will ask you how much you want to pay. Enter the amount you want to pay and move to the next page.
The next thing is to enter your NairaBET customer identification number.
After entering your ID, it will bring up your name. If it brings up another name, that means you have entered the wrong ID so cancel it and do it again.
Confirm it if the details are correct. Some machines will ask you to put your telephone number. Enter it and they will send you a confirmation message. It is not compulsory though.
That is it. Before you get back home, your account would have been funded.
