In the history of Nigeria Banking, not a single Digital Bank has ever been created from the start. Banks only provide a Mobile Banking application, which tends to make transactions more faster. But the fact is Mobile Banking is different from Digital Banking. Mobile banking requires you going to your bank to get your ATM card and also get it activated, while your Virtual Card is being shipped to your door step and are activated by you and you alone which your pin can be set and controlled in Digital Banking. A very good example of Digital Banking is Payoneer.
How will you feel when I inform you now that we have the FIRST of it's kind in Nigeria. I'll like to Introduce to you, the first Digital Bank in Nigeria, which is ALAT by Wema Bank.
ALAT is a digital banking service powered by Wema Bank Nigeria, it is 100% digital which allows you to do all your banking transactions without being physically present at a bank. Alat digital bank allows you to open a free, fully functional savings account using just your BVN and phone number in exactly 5mins. No paperwork required!
At its core, ALAT by Wema bank is selling simplicity, reliability and convenience. ALAT digital banking help you put money away easily by automating your saving, make sure your bills are paid on time with its scheduled payment feature and deliver a free debit card (ALAT ATM Card) to your doorstep, you can activate, lock and unlock from your phone to use anywhere in Nigeria. You can get paid when you refer a friend to open and fund an account too. All from the comfort of your smartphone.
This is the kind of innovation we've been expecting since. Enough of going to banks and staying on the queue to get your ATM Card or making transactions, ALAT Is here for us. And thanks to the Wema bank for being the pioneer of this innovative in Nigeria.
The question asked most by people is: Can we trust ALAT?
Sometimes I once asked myself the same question, but I never got an answer for myself, so I had to do the needful. ALAT is confirmed to be owned by WEMA Bank Plc, which is a financial institution in Nigeria, a bank to be precise. And after so many researches, WEMA Bank as claimed to be the owner of ALAT, not just ALAT claiming to be owned by WEMA, But WEMA Bank Nigeria Plc claimed its ownership.
This is becoming so interesting. After my tour of my research I found ALAT to be legit and trustworthy and also, it has a very responsive and caring customer care service, they are ready to listen to your complaints and also ready to get them solved as soon as possible. So why not try ALAT?
