Cardless Withdrawal in Nigeria: How to Withdraw Money from ATM Without Card

(Learn how to use Cardless Withdrawal in Nigeria to withdraw money from your bank on any ATM gallery without your ATM card or making a bank transfer to anybody. This tutorial applies to all Banks in Nigeria)

You urgently need to withdraw some money but you’re not with your ATM card (MasterCard, Verve or VISA), does that mean there’s no possible way except you make a bank transfer or get your card?

Definitely No!

The Cardless Withdrawal in Nigeria got you!

Right in this blog post, I will show you how you can withdraw money from any ATM stand in Nigeria without your ATM card.

I’m not going to bore you with long text, but straight to the point. 

But before I start the easy tutorial, kindly note that Cardless Withdrawal is 100% legal and safe as long as someone who knows your banking details didn’t steals your phone to perform the transaction.

So, that’s a warning for you; don’t ever let anybody have access to your phone without your consent or lock your banking apps and ensure you don’t reveal your banking PIN to anybody.

Now, let’s talk about how you can withdraw cash from an ATM without using your MasterCard, VISA or Verve.

How to Use Cardless Withdrawal in Nigeria

I’m going to split this tutorial into two methods and you can choose (or use) any of them.

  1. Using Your Banking Mobile App
  2. Using Your Bank USSD Code

Basically, if you want to use cardless withdrawal, you need to generate a token or what is called Paycode. This paycode is what you will punch on the ATM with the selected 4-digits PIN and amount.

How much is the cardless withdrawal fee in Nigeria?

Kindly note that N100 will be deducted for using the Cardless withdrawal service in Nigeria. If you want to withdraw N5000, have it in mind that N5100 will be debited from your account.

How to perform Cardless Withdrawal Withdrawal via Banking Mobile App

Note that this cardless withdrawal procedure is the same for all banks (GTBank, First Bank, UBA, Diamond, VFD Bank etc.), although, it might be slightly different due to how the banking mobile apps are designed. 

And we are going to do this in two easy steps;

STEP 1: On your Mobile App

  • Open your banking mobile app (if you don’t have, go to Playstore or Appstore to download your bank’s mobile app e.g GTWorld)
  • Sign in with your preferred method
  • Go to your mobile app menu and click on Cardless withdrawal (on GTworld app, click on Cashout in the home screen)
  • Select the account to debit (simply select your savings account or account with money)
  • If your app ask for the cashout terminal (such as GTBank), choose ATM
  • Select or write the amount you want to withdraw
  • Choose any 4-digits PIN to authenticate the cardless withdrawal at any ATM stand
  • Click on continue or submit

That’s all you need to do on your mobile app.

Now an automated 11-digits number known as PAYCODE or TOKEN will be sent to your phone number attached to that account number. Now, the next and final step!

STEP 2: On the ATM Gallery

Please make sure you have received SMS that have your Cardless withdrawal Paycode or token. Open your message system app on your phone.

  • After getting your 11-digits PAYCODE or TOKEN for cardless withdrawal, click on any button on the ATM
  • Now, select Cardless Withdrawal or Paycode feature >> Click on PROCEED
  • Now, you will be asked to enter your paycode or token: Enter the long number sent to you from your bank correctly
  • Type amount (you don’t need to include the N100 fee, it’s automatic)
  • Finally click on PROCEED

The ATM will process your transaction and if the details you entered are correct, the money will be dispensed within one minute or less.
