Ecobank Nigeria Limited has announced special discount for shoppers using the EcobankPay option to pay for their goods and services during the Easter holidays.

The campaign would run till the end of April 2019.

Announcing the Easter promotion in Lagos, Executive Director Commercial Banking, Carol Oyedeji, said shoppers are to get special discounts in shops in Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt, Benin, Warri, Aba and other cities across the country where the EcobankPay QR code is on display.

Explaining the accessibility of the EcobankPay QR code, she said it accepts all three payment platforms available, be it MasterPass, MVisa and MCash.

  “Also, the discounts are available at all EcobankPay zones. If the person that wishes to buy goods from you is coming from a bank that has MVisa and decides to pay, the same QRcode would accept MVisa payment and vice versa.

“This creates synergy between us and the other banks and convenience for the merchants. And as you know, the QR code is much cheaper than having a point of sale (POS) and your account is credited immediately,” she stated.

For the merchants she said, “the beauty of the EcobankPay, is in the cost of set up, as the shop owner simply print the QR code on a paper and can stick it anywhere and do not face any risk. It is convenient and the mobile app allows the ubiquity. It allows you 24/7 access. We cannot over emphasis the instant credit.”
