Firstmonie Agents: How They Are Different from Other POS Service
It is no news that in every nook and cranny, there is always a banner with the inscription “POS available here”. This initiative has saved many Nigerians especially in the year 2020 when the pandemic hit the global economy.
However, the spread of these Point of Sale (POS) across the country meant a lot of shady schemes may occur. This is why FirstBank’s “Firstmonie Agents” differentiate themselves from other POS agents. Here are some ways Firstmonie sets itself apart from others:
- Branding: FirstBank, the parent company ensures all its Firstmonie Agents have their shops branded in FirstBanks’ colours (Blue and Yellow-Gold).
- Firstmonie Agent is a member of SANEF: An acronym meaning Shared Agent Network Expansion Facilities (SANEF). This CBN accredited organisation is the parent body that ensures that Financial Services are closer to every Nigerian.
- All agents have a Firstmonie Agent Certificate: This shows that each agent is verified before called an agent.
- Do more than collect money: Yes, you can do more at any Firstmonie agents points. These include opening a FirstBank account, withdrawing money from any bank, payment of bills, airtime purchase, deposit money and BVN enrolment.
As the premier Bank in West Africa and the leading financial inclusion services provider in Nigeria for over 127 years, First Bank of Nigeria Limited has remained at the forefront of promoting digital payment in the country, and the Firstmonie Wallet is one of the channels for digital transactions.
Little wonder FirstBank was named “Most Valuable Bank Brand in Nigeria” six times in a row (2011 – 2016) by the globally renowned “The Banker Magazine” and “Best Retail Bank in Nigeria” for seven consecutive years (2011 – 2017) by the Asian Banker International. FirstBank also bagged the Excellence in Retail Financial Services Awards and “Best Bank in Nigeria” by Global Finance for 15 years.
