As the new school term approaches, parents are preparing for the excitement and challenges of getting their children ready for another term of learning. This time often brings a list of expenses, from school fees to essential supplies.
Equity Bank is here to help ease the financial anxiety that can come with this season by introducing convenient payment solutions. Parents can use the upgraded Equity Mobile App, Equity Online, *247#, or Equitel to pay school fees directly to school accounts.
The improved app offers enhanced security, shorter steps, and detailed mini-statements and transaction receipts.
Equity Bank also offers free money transfers from an Equity account to another Equity account through any channel: Equity Mobile App, *247#, Equitel, Equity Online, Equity Agent or any Equity branch.
Customers can also pay for goods and services for free at outlets with the One Equity Till Number sign using the Equity Mobile App, *247# or Equitel.
Additionally, parents can get a banker’s cheque for as little as Kshs. 100 or deposit fees at an Equity Bank branch or Agent for free.
Equity’s credit and debit cards make shopping easy—both online and offline—with no extra charges.
There’s also an upgraded prepaid card for students that offers added safety and budgeting.
Parents can load pocket money securely, knowing their child is covered.
Parents can also deposit or pay their children’s school fees via any Equity Agent for free.
They’ll need to provide specific details about the student’s admission number and name, which is captured on the receipt for easy reconciliation by the school bursar.
Equity Bank also offers instant loans direct to your phone, covering all back-to-school expenses from paying school fees to shopping.
Loans are available instantly through your mobile phone without the need for forms or guarantors.
All you need is an active Equity account and having activated Equity Mobile banking by dialling *247# on your mobile.
