What Exactly is the Quickteller App?


You know that awkward moment when your ATM Card despite your having a healthy bank balance suddenly becomes useless? Yes, you are caught out without a kobo and have checked all the ATMs in the area but they are all out of cash; and you really really really need to pay that bill or send money to a friend/client or simply buy airtime. What to do?

Download the Quickteller App!!!
The Quickteller App is basically the app version of Quickteller.com – an electronic payment platform through which you can buy airtime, transfer funds and pay bills. As a downloadable app on your Android, BlackBerry and iOS smartphones*, the Quickteller App becomes your mobile payment option on the go!!! All you need to do is download it and use your ATM Card to make payments. It is easy, safe and convenient!!!

There are three quick ways to download the Quickteller App:

Then all you need to carry out transactions is an ATM Card issued by your bank and activation of the ATM Card on the app or at the ATM (see steps below**).

So say goodbye to those awkward moments like the one above and be free! ;)

    1. Tejiri Oghenekaro

      Hi Friday, the Quickteller currently works with only Verve and Master Cards. Kindly request one from your bank. You should be able to get the card same day.

      1. Tonye

        You did mentioned that the app accepts Mastercard and that’s not true because i have tried it and it even displayed that it only accepts Verv Card.

        1. Tejiri Oghenekaro

          Tonye hi, you can pay with your MasterCard on the Quickteller App by choosing the ‘Pay at Quickteller’ option. Thank you for downloading the Quickteller App!

    1. Tejiri Oghenekaro

      Lanre hi,

      you can increase the value of your transactions by enabling your card at the ATM as outlined in the post above. Keep using Quickteller!

  4. lanre atilola

    is this payment code peculier to me or general for everybody? will the payment system accept every atm card irrespective of the bank that issued it and the issuers operative, e.g verve, mastercard and interswitch

    1. Tejiri Oghenekaro

      Hi Lanre, the payment code for card activation at the ATM is for everybody. If you are referring to the app, it works with Verve and MasterCard cards. However, if you want to complete a transaction using a MasterCard, pls use the “Pay with Quicteller.com” option on the app. Keep using Quickteller App!

  5. Francis B. Udoh

    For over a week now since I downlaoded this app, I’ve not been able to generate the safe token for me. I keep receiving the ‘unable to generate the safe token (-2)’ notice. what else should I do? I have already activated my verve card.

    1. Tejiri Oghenekaro

  9. Ebiye Edwins Ikeotuonye

    I have activated my card via the ATM machine and was debited N1.00 and yet I can’t buy airtime for my fone above N200. 00 and I am wondering why. Now I just got a message to go through the same process to be debited N1. 00 again, why and what’s going on??? Please activate my card as I had paid previously and wasn’t activated. Thank you.

  10. Ebiye Edwins Ikeotuonye

    I have activated my card via the ATM machine and was debited N1.00 and yet I can’t buy airtime for my fone above N200. 00 and I am wondering why. Now I just got a message to go through the same process to be debited N1. 00 again, why and what’s going on??? Please activate my card as I had paid previously and wasn’t activated. Thank you. And I also cannot transfer funds to my siblings and I am guessing it’s because of the “no activation but debited account “

    1. Tejiri Oghenekaro

      Habib hi, this is because you have not yet enabled your card at the ATM. Kindly see post above and follow the steps outlined to activate your card at the ATM. Keep using the Quickteller App!

    1. Tejiri Oghenekaro

      Hi Richflower, the Quickteller App currently works with Verve Cards. Kindly request one from your bank to enjoy a more convenient transaction experience. However, pending this you can use the “Pay at Quickteller.com” option on the app to use your GTBank card. Have a nice day and keep using Quickteller!

  15. emma

    Can I knw more about the tranfer..do they charge for money transfer from bank to bank. Secondly, do they charge for getting airtime

    1. Tejiri Oghenekaro

      Emma hi, for bank to bank funds transfers a convenience fee of N100 is charged, while airtime purchase does not attract any charges. Keep using the Quickteller App!

  16. oyibo kc

    Also, do i have to register my again on the mobile when i already registered on the website?

    1. Tejiri Oghenekaro

      KC hi, you should register/activate your card on the ATM. Once you have done this, you do not need to activate your card on the app. Just select “Skip Activation/Proceed” to use the app. This also applies to usage on Quickteller.com. Thank you for using Quickteller.

    1. Tejiri Oghenekaro

  21. Akingbola

    I have already registered my mastercard, didn’t find easy to use because of so many prompts. I got tired, uninstalled the app and now I have reinstalled the app successfully. How do I retrieve my earlier card registration details and make this seamless. I have tried re-registering the card but the app keeps telling me that the card had already been registered to another account which is true, but no options to re-enter that old detail that was not working for. What can be done to salvage this situation. Thank you.

    1. Tejiri Oghenekaro

      Akingbola hi, upon re-installation of the Quickteller App, use the phone number you used in the first installation process and your details will be automatically linked with the app. Should you still have a problem, kindly send an email to support@interswitchng.com. Thank you for choosing Quickteller!

  22. lawson Maureen

    The app works great. I cn recharge my phone. But says limit has been set when I want to transfer fund to bank. Pls what is the set limit for transferring fund?. Or must I register with the atm b4 I can transfer fund to bank?

    1. Sabinus

      Goodness hi, thank you for choosing Quickteller. Yes, to increase the set limits placed by your bank, you have to get your card registered for Safetoken OTP either by yourself or by your bank at the ATM.

  27. Uchenna

    I have used the app to recharge, pay for dstv and even transfer to bank accounts. Just recently, I have been unable to transfer to bank accounts. I get several error messages from “transaction failure to bank set limits”. I have even went to my bank to complain and they said all is well from their end. I need to send money. Please, how can you help me rectify this?

    1. Sabinus

      Waziri hi, the safety and security of your account and details have been put into consideration; as such you should have no fear of hackers. Using the app is just like using the ATM or making payments on-line. As long as you do not share your PIN or card details with others your accounts are safe. Thank you for choosing Quickteller!

    1. Sabinus

      Hi Eneyo, kindly run the app and then refresh data. When you’ve done this carry out a balance enquiry. Once this is done the app should work just fine. Thank you for choosing Quickteller.

  28. ogunseye james
