2 Quick! Quick! Ways to Pay for your DStv & GOtv on the GO!








MultiChoice has definitely evolved over the years, with the latest step being its new DStv Explora Decoder. Not only have the decoder consoles and programme content evolved, ways of making quick and easy payments have also evolved:

You can now renew your DStv and GOtv subscriptions without lifting a leg, literally. All you need is your phone, your ATM card and your smart card number. Shikena!


Quick Way 1: Quickteller IVR Voice Call

By dialling 08139851090  and following the voice prompt you can pay for your DStv and GOtv subscriptions by entering your ATM card details and your smart card number as requested.

To complete a transaction, the Quickteller IVR system gives you the option to pay with your registered card (if only you have registered your Verve Card for Safetoken) or the option to Pay at Quickteller.com.

So dial 08139851090  now and save the number for later!

Please note that Telco IVR call rates may apply.

Quick Way 2: SMS

By sending “{BANKNAME} PAY DSTV {AMOUNT} {SMARTCARDNUMBER}” to 32122. (This is currently only available for DStv.)

e.g. ZENITH PAY DSTV 4500 1234567890.

If your Verve Card has been registered for Safetoken, you will receive an automated IVR call asking for your card CVV2 and PIN to complete the transaction.
If your ATM card has not been registered for Safetoken either by your bank or by yourself at the ATM, you will have to use the Pay at Quickteller.com option where an SMS with a URL/link to the WebPay page will be sent to your phone to complete the transaction. However, you must have a phone with connection to the internet i.e. 3G or EDGE to access the link.


Please note that each SMS costs N30.

For a list of banks and their bank codes* please see table below:

Should you have a problem kindly contact support@interswitchng.com or call 01-9065000.


So feel free as closing times no longer apply to you. Whip out your phone and hit those numbers or better still, have it on speed dial. ;)

    I tried to use the sms, but the response is initial key word not recognized as bank or merchant name.what will I use.

    1. Sabinus

      Adeyi hi, thanks for choosing Quickteller! We have updated the blog post to include the list of banks and their bank codes. Pls check and try again! :)

      1. greg

        you have not answered the question. l receive the same message when I tried paying. What does the system recognise as name, bank name or code?

        1. Sabinus

          Hi, kindly use the bank code against your bank as shown in the table. Thank you for choosing Quickteller.

        1. Sabinus


          Paying with your bank account is not included in the option above. Please use the easy and more convenient options above.

          Thanks for choosing Quickteller.

      1. Ochei O. Justus

        Hello Sabinus, i don’t think your response really answered the question

        Does it mean i need to instruct my bank to link my card to an account or what?

        1. Sabinus

          Ochei hi, ordinarily you use your ATM card to make payments on various online platforms. And if your ATM card has been registered for Safetoken OTP, then the system will recognise this card and the account that is tied to it.

  2. Nwamadu Anthony

    I normally don’t wait till my subscription expires but I find it very difficult to renew because quickteller changed to what I dont know. asking for otp and what I don’t know, I have tried going to an ATM machine to activate what they requested but can’t find the options, its really stressing me because I can no longer shop online and enjoy easy access to goods and services online. please try and rectify these issues pls

    1. Sabinus

      Hi Anthony, thank you for choosing Quickteller. Safetoken OTP is designed for your own protection by providing a second level authentication for all online transactions. You can get in touch with your bank to register your ATM card for you if you are having challenges with registering at the ATM, otherwise you could try another ATM as the Quickteller option is available in over 13,000 ATMs nationwide. Please we would like you to continue to use Quickteller and enjoy greater convenience. Please let us know how it goes.

    1. Sabinus

      Vincent hi, transferring funds from one account to the other on Quickteller is easy. Click on the “Transfer to Account”. Enter the Destination bank details – account number, type and the beneficiary name. Enter the amount and click “Continue”. This will open the WebPAY payment gateway where you will need to enter your ATM card details so effect the transfer from your account to the specified account. Please note that there is a convenience fee of N100 only. click here to get started: https://www.quickteller.com/Categories/SendReceiveMoney

      Thank you for choosing Quickteller!

  3. Dr. Henry Edeghere

    Hello, I used the SMS step to pay for my DSTV subscription through GTB which is NOT on your listed banks. At the end of imputting the required information: GTB pay DSTV (3000) 411301067988, I got this response – ” GTBANK PAY 914550 10000 1234″. Does this mean that the transaction was successful?. Please let me know as I do not want to be disconnected, particulary at the Yuletide period.
    Dr. Henry Edeghere

    1. Sabinus

      Hi Henry, the transaction was not successful as the “()” were not recognised by the system. Pls remove the brackets and pls try again i.e. GTB pay DSTV 3000 411301067988 to 32122. Thank you for choosing Quickteller!

  4. Greyguy Ashburn

    I want to be using quickteller to pay for subscription for people who are in my local and can’t go to DSTV office in PH because its quite far. Do you guys charge for DSTV and GOTV subscription on quickteller? If yes How much so I can know how to add my own charges.

  5. Michael

    Pls I want to understand something if I have a visa debit card I can use it to pay for my DStv?and how do I register for SAFETOKEN? Thank U.

    1. Sabinus

      Hi Michael, thank you for choosing Quickteller. Visa cards do not currently work on Quickteller. However, MasterCards and Verve Cards work on Quickteller. There are 2 ways to register either your MasterCard or Verve Card for Safetoken: you can ask your bank to enable your card for Safetoken i.e. online transactions or you can do it yourself at the ATM. Pls note that if you use a GTBank card, your hardware token issued by the bank is to be used to generate the Safetoken One-Time Password.

        1. Sabinus

          Adetola hi, thank you for choosing Quickteller. We appreciate your kind words. Pls share the Quickteller message in your own little (or big) way, let everyone enjoy simplicity and convenience! :)

  6. Adebola

    Quickteller i have been using this platform for a few month, but not the sms, i downloaded the quickteller app on my fone †̥ d many activities. It functions well i don’t think i need the sms.

    1. Sabinus

      Godswill hi, if you are using a Verve Card that is registered for Safetoken, when you activate the app using the same phone number you used to register for Safetoken, your Verve card will be automatically added unto the app.

  7. Hamza Dahiru

    I tried to use the sms, but the response is initial key word not recognized as bank or merchant name.what will I use.

    1. Sabinus

      Hi Hamza, thank you for choosing Quickteller. Kindly check the table and use the bank code for your bank.

  8. Dr. Mark Malik

    I opted for the SMS option. And I sent it 3ce, thus: FIRST BANK PAY DSTV 11650 41335898957, FIRST PAY DSTV 11650 41335898957, FBN PAY DSTV 11650 41335898957. All returned a response of Initial keyword not recognized as bank. Check spelling of first word and resend. I do not know what else to do. Please advise.

    1. Sabinus

      Hi Dr. Malik, thank you for choosing Quickteller. Apologies for the downtime on SMS. Kindly use any of our other payment methods to effect your payment. Quickteller IVR works just fine: dial 08139851090 and follow the voice prompt.

  9. godswill

    I always get this message when trying to add my card “Virtual card has already been registered under this wallet. (5092)”

    And “Request facility not subscribed” when I send “Quickteller to 32122″

  10. Agbor Ojen Jr

    Good day Administrator
    Until early this year, I usually make payments for bulk sms units online from my EcoBank Account using VoguePay platform integrated into the bulk sms website. This is okay and is still working perfectly.
    However, I recently bought an Android Phone and want to be using Quick teller instead. But any time I tried registering or activating my ATM in the Quickteller Apps, it returns with the message “Virtual card has already been regsitered under this wallet. (5092)”
    I don’t know what to do next. I’ll really do appreciate your timely response to my quest.
    Thank You!

    1. Sabinus
