The service, also known as Bank to Wallet will provide an alternative channel to deposit or withdraw money from a UBA Customer’s Account to their Orange Money Wallet and vice versa. The service will also allow customers to do bank account balance inquiry and check their last five bank transactions.

To have access to the platform and to conduct self-services, all customers will need to register on Orange Money using *144# and proceed to any of UBA Business Offices in Liberia to link both their UBA Account and Orange Money Wallet Account.
Head of Marketing and Corporate Communications UBA Liberia, Melody Mezay-Ketter stated that the launch of the Bank to wallet platform signals a significant milestone for all UBA Customers which also supports the bank’s digital transformation agenda.
She called on other Liberians to take advantage of the opportunity to open an account with UBA and join thousands of customers to enjoy great deals of digital banking products been offered by the bank.
For the first three months, the service will be free of charges for all customers with a minimum fee of $0.50 as per transaction after the said period.
