What is the ‘Pay with Bank Transfer’ Option?

The ‘Pay With Bank Transfer’ as the name implies, is a payment type on Buypower that allows you to pay for your electricity bills by making a transfer into a provided bank account. It is easy, convenient and just like sending money to a friend.

How to Use the ‘Pay with Bank Transfer’ Payment Option on BuyPower

If you’re ready to pay for your electricity bills and you probably don’t have a debit card on you, or your line hasn’t been activated for USSD payments, you can simply make a transfer. Here’s how this works;

For Web

  1. Log on to www.buypower.ng
  2. Click on ‘Click here to Buy Electricity’
  3. Fill in your details and select ‘Continue to payment information’
  4. Review your details and then proceed by clicking on ‘Pay ……’

For Mobile App

  2. Tap on ‘Buy Unit
  3. Fill in your details and tap on ‘Continue to payment information’
  4. Review your order and tap on ‘Pay…..
  5. Select the ‘Pay with Bank Transfer’ option
  6. Read the transfer instructions and tap on the check box

What You Should Know Before Making a Transfer

Before using this option, you should note that the token generation is an automated process. Once payment has been received on our end, it automatically generates a token for the meter you purchased for. This token is then sent to you directly. You can find how to get your token here.

Finally, while you might be tempted to continuously pay into that account for all your electricity bills payments, please note that an account number is generated for a specific meter. Hence, whenever you want to purchase for another meter, you have to go through the process above.

However, if you want to keep paying for the same meter, you can keep using the account number you got initially.

And that’s how to use the ‘pay with bank transfer’ option. We hope this has been helpful. If you have any questions, kindly let us know in the comment section below.
