Kudabank Account Types
As traditional banks offer customers the chance of selecting from a variety of account types (current account, savings account and fixed deposit account), so does Kuda provide its customers with three different account types: Lite, Basic and Premium.
Notably, each Kudabank account type is associated with prerequisites and it behoves anyone willing to open a particular Kudabank account to have its requirements handy. For instance, Premium (which is the topmost Kudabank account type) requires you to provide your name, phone number, a valid ID and BVN. For Basic, you’re required to provide your name, phone number and BVN while Lite requires only your name and your phone number.
As noted earlier, Premium is the topmost account type offered by Kudabank and while this account type tends to avail customers better access to Kuda’s services, it nevertheless comes with a few limits as outlined below:
- Your maximum daily fund transfer is restricted to #1 million
- The maximum amount you can transfer per transaction is #250, 000
- #500,000 is the highest amount you can transfer via POS
- #30,000 is the highest withdrawal amount per transaction via ATM
About the Kudabank App
Kudabank offers a mobile banking app with an excellent design. Although there are few reports claiming that it functions quite floppily (perhaps on iOS devices), the Kudabank app runs smoothly on Android devices as well as devices with an EDGE connection.
Benefits of Using Kudabank
- Kudabank allows for free deposit of funds. The Nigerian digital-only bank boasts more than 10,000 branches across the country and interestingly, Kudabank account holders can make deposits at any of these branches without paying any kobo.
- Free monthly inter-bank transfers on two occasions. Kudabank account holders enjoy zero transfer charges two times on a monthly basis. In other words, as a Kudabank customer, you’ll not have to bear any transfer charge for two of your monthly transfers to external bank accounts. Basically, Kudabank charges #10 for every inter-bank transfer but for a customer’s first two inter-bank transfers in a month, no charges will be involved.
- Zero cash withdrawal fee. This translates into the absence of charges during fund withdrawals by Kudabank customers. While that sounds great, there’s an added benefit in the form of zero ATM maintenance fee. Customarily, Nigerian banks charge their customers ATM maintenance fees but Kudabank tends to be a remarkable diversion from these traditional banks, courtesy of its zero ATM maintenance fee.
