“Isn’t it foolish that i want to buy credit online from QuickTeller and I’m being asked to SEND A TEXT to another Number for OTP purposes?” – @Wan_tin_tin
This was a tweet we came across while
trolling doing some research on Twitter. It seems to make a lot of sense: I mean you don’t have airtime on your phone and you need to recharge and yet you are being asked to use airtime (that you don’t have) to send “ZIB OTP” (in the case of Zenith Bank) to generate a One-Time Password (OTP) to complete the airtime purchase! Now, in this particular situation it may appear redundant but the Safetoken Service which generates the OTP is a regulatory requirement and was put in place by the banks to safeguard your online payment transactions. So in essence there is nothing we can do…..
…Or is there?
You see at Quickteller we are ALWAYS THINKING of cool ways to make your user experience better. So we have a “cheat mode” that gets around your having to spend airtime to get an OTP…drum roll…
Yes, with the Quickteller App downloaded onto your smartphone, you can scroll to “Extras”, click and select “Generate Safetoken”, click and select the bank card you want to use for the transaction and viola! a One-Time Password is instantly generated by the app with which you can use to complete that airtime purchase on Quickteller or any other WebPay enabled third-party online retail platform.
So this is another cool reason to download and use the uber- convenient Quickteller App!
Thank us later!
Your bank must have previously activated or registered your card for Safetoken or you must have activated the card yourself at the ATM to enjoy this.
