With the Ecobank Xpress account, students will be able to access financial services such as airtime top up, funds transfer and bill payment from their mobile devices. Parents and Guardians will also be able to transfer money to their children or wards‘ Xpress accounts which they can withdraw without a card at any Ecobank Automated Teller Machine (ATM) or Xpress Point.
