What’s the code for sending money
USSD is an acronym for Unstructured Supplementary Service Data, which means a protocol or channel that allows you to send instructions to your bank by entering numbers directly on your phone.
To use USSD banking, you must be on one of these networks: Airtel, MTN, and GLO. The good news is that most cell phone devices support USSD; it’s a matter of turning it on and registering your account with your bank.
