Nigerian banks ATM transfer limit 2022/2023 [Withdrawal limit inclusive]

ATM transfer limit – According to a recent data by statista, the value of fund transfers in Nigeria was over N2.6trillion naira between January and June 2020 alone.

The fact that Nigerians have finally embraced e-channel platforms for transactions is a positive signal in the right direction.

We are nowhere close to the proposed cashless economy, but we aren’t still where we used to be either, not losing sight on few bottlenecks that seem to be stalling the success of the Nigerian e-channel platforms like;

  • Dispense errors
  • Network downtime
  • False debit etc

Despite all these, I am confident enough to say we’ve made significant progress in this department, despite not to have matched the status of the world class banking, in view of countries we look up to in technology based service delivery.

That aside now….

I’ve received a good number emails and enquiries from readers on this platform particularly on ATM transfer limit and ATM withdrawal limit in Nigeria.

If you are a regular user of this alternate channel for fund transfers and withdrawals in the country, you’d sure come to a point your card issuer declines your request to proceed with any of the aforesaid transactions.

This happens given to what your bank termed as daily transfer or withdrawal limit.

As a general rule, there’s an extent to which you cannot be allowed to exceed certain thresholds across the e-channel platforms in a single day, this is how you come about the daily transfer and withdrawal limit.

In any case you want to know the ATM daily transfer and withdrawal limit of any Nigerian bank, you are in the right place, relax and read through, I’ve taken my time to compile what I term a complete guide on this subject.
