4 Ways to Get Safetoken OTP

There are 4 additional ways to get your Safetoken OTP:

  1. By dialling *322*0# (for MTN, Etisalat, Airtel subscribers) or *805*0# (for Glo subscribers)*
  2. From the Quickteller App
  3. By Email
  4. By texting “BankName OTP” to 32122 (Click here for list of Banks)*
Please note that your ATM card must have been successfully registered for Safetoken by your bank or by yourself at the ATM, specifying the dedicated mobile phone number and/or email. Also, telco charges may apply to USSD and text messaging service

Remember to keep your ATM card, mobile phone and PIN to yourself at all times. Do not share these with anyone.

    Before the use of one time payment on quickteller, i have been using my nokia E5 phone to perform transactions almost everyweek online, buying airtime and paying for pay tv monthly. immidiately the emergence of one time payment , i got restricted using thier services online. I went to my bank to register for one time payment and to get the code by sms later on, all went well but to continue using the services on my mobile phone became impossible for me unless i use my laptop to perform the transaction. After i had input every other thing on my phone, the last operation to insert the card type is where i normally face the stock and unable to procede to the final loading, unlike the laptop where i can further insert my card number, pin number, otp and on. the question now is, Is quickteller not supporting symbian phones anymore ?

  6. Adamu Ibrahim Abbas

    Hi, i have two cards on my apps the first one(Ecobank card) and FCMB card the first one is not active how’ll i get rid of it pls and how’ll the second one replace it.

    1. Sabinus

      Adamu hi, you can add the second card to the app without necessarily removing the first one. Just make sure that you use the same mobile number when activating it. However, if you still want to remove the first card, kindly send an email to support@Interswitchng.com. Thank you for choosing Quickteller!

  9. deji

    Since I ported, I have not been able to receive my OTP. I have a token from UBA (the red thing that generates an 8-digit code to verify trasactions) but it still doesn’t work when I try and use it to pay for a bill via the merchants website. Sending a texxt doesn’t work because I don’t get a response and using the phone interface doesn’t work either because I always get the message “session timed out”

    1. Sabinus

      Hi Abiola, thank you for choosing Quickteller. Yes, you can use your hardware token to generate OTP if yours is issued by GTBank. However, FirstBank hardware tokens cannot be used to generate OTP.

  10. Eche

    How much does it cost to use the USSD channel to generate the One Time Password? That is, how much am I charged when I dial *322*0# to generate OTP?

    1. Sabinus

      Hi Eche, thank you for choosing Quickteller. USSD charges vary for the different telcos but the average cost is about N4 per session.

  11. Bello Sabo

    I did porting of my MTN Number to an Etisalat number.Since then i could not receive any OTP sent to me for the purpose of any transaction.For two weeks i have been making efforts but to no avail. I requested my bank to change my number on their system for my account and asked them to use my new number instead of the former one which ported [ converted to an Etisalat line from MTN} instead of my earlier one. I also request them to activate my U-mobile with the same Gsm new number to enable me resume my mobile transactions. It is regrettable that up till now more than a month ago, i have not been able to make a single transaction. This is because the OTP is sent normally to my former GSM number and by quickteller but the text doesn’t reach me at all since i have not been receiving any text from system since then.Could any one with good knowledge assist me on how i can resolve this challenge.? I am worried

  12. jonathan

    Pls I keep getting this message whenever I try using d quickteller app on my fone to remember my card for safe token ( virtual card already activated with another wallet)
    Dat is for ecobank

    D gtb gives me (card not supported) pls wat do I do?

    1. Sabinus

      Jonathan hi, kindly confirm that your Ecobank card is a Verve card. If so there is no need for you to remember your Ecobank card on the app. Kindly skip this step and carry out an account balance enquiry. You should see your Ecobank card listed. To pay using your GTBank card, you should use the “Pay at Quickteller” option. Thank you for choosing Quickteller.

  13. Barile

    Hi, please I’d like to change the number which I receive my OTP to a new one . The old one is lost and I can’t make any transactions and it’s not safe. What do I do?

  14. Lord Moses

    My own comment is on the use of your customer service line 01-9065000. If one calls the number it’s always information all through. There is no customer service provider to talk to.

    1. Sabinus

      Chi hi, the payment transaction cannot be completed without the entry of the OTP once prompted. So, no the money has not left the account if you have not entered the OTP sent to you. Thank you for choosing Quickteller.

  15. zainan

    I changed my number from 08133149999 to 08153773246 how do i retrieve my OTP now because it keeps sending it to the old number

  31. Oluchi

    Hi Team,
    I’m using a Verve Ecobank card. I attempted to transfer money from one account to another via my quickteller account but i was told i dont have the OTP… i read on your site that “(Ecobank Verve Card holders would not need to self-enrol via the ATM as the bank will automatically do this for them.)” https://connect.interswitchng.com/no-seriously-why-you-should-carry-out-atm-card-activationsafetoken-registration/

    Please I would like to know how i can be assisted as the banks dont operate during the weekend

    1. Sabinus

      Oluchi hi, you will have to contact your bank Ecobank in this regard as they undertake Safetoken registration on behalf of their customers. Thank you for choosing Quickteller.

  32. femi

    What option is available for someone abroad and wish to use Quickteller for payment transfer? Can i get OTP on my foreign mobile number or email?

    1. Sabinus

      Femi hi, OTPs cannot be sent over an international network. To get OTPs sent to your email you will have to contact your bank. Thank you for choosing Quickteller.

  33. mekela aiyejina

  34. Faith

    Hi. I have been using quickteller app to recharge. I have always wanted to transfer money from my eco bank account. This eve I used a zenith bank atm to register my card. Was charged 1 naira amd another 100 naira. I tried transferring some money to another ecobank account. Since then I keep getting Transaction failed error 94 from the quickteller app. I tried using d website. Still transaction failed. They have debitted my account for the amount i wanted to send over 5 times the 100naira service charge and the money keeps coming back. Pls what can I do.

    1. Sabinus

      Faith hi, since you are using an Ecobank card there is no need to register your card for Safetoken at the ATM as the bank has already registered your card on your behalf. Kindly contact Ecobank to confirm of your card has been enabled for Safetoken.

  35. Myke

    I just tried to pay for a flight and didn’t get my OTP as usual, hence i couldn’t complete the transaction. What do i do?

    1. Sabinus

      Hi Myke, kindly confirm that your ATM/debit card has been provisioned for Safetoken. If you are using a GTBank card, pls use the hardware token to generate the OTP. There are 4 ways you can get the OTP:

      From the Quickteller App

  47. David

    I am trying to register my card in the Quickteller app and its telling me virtual card already registered with another wallet. What do I do because I want to register it with this phone now.

  48. Oluwa Babajide

    Yesterday 05/09/2014 I registered for the Safetoken to enable me carry out transactions on any web merchant site that has integrated to the Interswitch payment gateway using a One Time Password (OTP) as a second level authentication process in addition to my Card Number, Card Expiry Date, PIN and CVV2 code.

    But its quite unfortunate that the process still makes me roll about cause am yet to receive an alert on 08027045201 which was used to register after which you surcharge N100 from my account.

    I already sent the above message to customersupport@interswitching.com

    Please rectify.

  54. Benjamin

    Would I kill myself for you guys before you send me the OTP I already paid for. I have already activated my ATM for safetoken whatever and I have already been debited but you guys are telling me that I havent activated and I cant get my OTP for NYSC reg. Even after collecting my 30 for sms confirmation. What is all this? Do you have any idea what I have been through today? Kindly send me what I have paid for now! Send the OTP to 08068056813 I activated a first bank ATM using this number. Give me my OTP

  55. Nnenna

    You should at least have the decency to say that the sms will cost N30. afterall you failed in your duty to send the OTP when you should at the point of payment. God help Nigeria, our customer service is just sub-zero.

    1. Sabinus

      Nnenna hi, thank you for pointing this out. This info is actually contained in other similar posts; we apologise for the omission and will include it in the post.

  56. ope
