Total Nigeria in collaboration with Guaranty Trust Bank has introduced a new offer that affords their customers the opportunity to get cash from selected Total Service Station with just ‘’dial of a botton’’.
The offer according to Total is called the *737#. It is a USSD platform which will enable utilization of daily sales cash proceeds to pay out cash to customers. Customers do not need Automated Teller Machine. All they need is to dial for example *737*35*AMOUNT*SAPCODE# on their mobile phones to withdraw cash from Total service stations. By sending this code, the customer’s GT Bank account is debited by the amount withdrawn, and Total’s account is credited. The station staff then releases the cash to the customer.
This service is convenient as it reduces the stress of going to the ATM or having to stay on the long queue in the banking hall. This solution not only offers customers the convenience of getting cash easily but also helps mop up excess cash in stations. This is line with a recent Cashless policy issued by the Central Bank of Nigeria. An activation was conducted in Total Solar Service Station, Onigbagbo on the 13th of April to formally launch the pilot phase of this service in over 50 stations across the Country. Roll of services in Total Service Station Nationwide is expected to continue throughout the course of the year.
