Welcome to Sterling bank (the one customer bank). If you are conversant with the Nigerian Banking industry, you recognize the growing trends of mobile USSD banking. It’s a very simple and easy way to perform transaction that you normally would have to go to the bank for, in the comfort of your home (or your bedroom as preferred). With *822#, your bank transactions become easier and faster. You may wonder, what do I need? Does it cost any sort of charge? Does it require anything major? Relax! While it may require little charges, it is quite cheap. With *822#, you can perform several transactions such as, purchase of airtime, BVN linkage, account number retrieval and checking your account balance, among others.
Note: For you to enjoy the whole *822 experience, you are required to have registered a number with the bank.
