How do I create a Pecan account?
Start by downloading our free mobile app from the App Store or Google Play Store. Once it’s installed, all you need to open an online money account is:
  • An email address and phone number
  • An ID document, like your voter’s card and NIMC slip (NIN)
We’ll ask you for a short video selfie in the app to confirm your identity and protect you from fraud. Once that’s done, all that’s left is to start using your app to spend, stash and receive money.
Will I need proof of address to create an online money account?
You’ll only require this when you want to upgrade your account to Tier 3. At the beginning, no.
How soon can I start using an online money account?
Immediately your account number is created.
How can a customer make deposits into their savings account?
There are numerous methods available to add money to your account. These include: adding funds through another debit card, receiving bank transfers by providing your Pecan account details, transferring money between your other accounts to your Pecan account, receiving payments from your employer, and requesting money from friends.
