And also, how to transfer airtime/credit from one network to another with the use of an app called SwapNaija. Hey! Does this last statement sound strange and impossible to you?

To clarify all on what “Airtime Transfer” is all about, now read on.

Airtime Transfer is simply one of the means of topping up your specific Network Account balance, instead of recharging through dialing of Scratch card PIN or airtime serial number on your mobile phone. In other words, the transfer can be from your friend’s line to your own number, whether he/she is using same Network service provider with you or from one different service provider to another network provider, example; MTN to Etisalat.

Codes to Send Transfer Airtime credit on MTN Airtel Glo  Etisalat Mobile Network

As you may know, this post is based on the Transfer codes for the four major active telecommunication Networks in Nigeria, which include; MTN, Airtel, Etisalat, and Glo. And as they are different, so are their services they render different also. Although, the services they render are almost the same thing with each other, but what differentiate most of their valued services is “the name they gave it and different codes to activate” Like MTN network, named their own Airtime transfer service to be used by customers as, “MTN Share and Sell”. For Etisalat network, they called their own “Etisalat Easy Airtime Transfer” and the last two which is Airtel and Glo network, is sharing the same name, and it’s called “Me2U”.  

Now, having known that, these network operators operate under various terms which are needed to be followed by any subscriber that intend using the services they offer.

You should also know that, transfer of Airtime or credit is not only done with codes, you can as well transfer airtime through different Mobile Banking Apps provided by the following banks; (FCMB, UBA, ECO Bank, Fidelity Bank, Zenith Bank, First Bank, Diamond Bank, Access Bank and most of the micro finance bank etc,) also through the Automated Machines ATM Cards, online top-up, VTU, YourVerveCards, etc.

But note that, every transfer you make, there is 10% fee attached to it. For example, if you want to transfer airtime to your friend using another network provider with the sum of N1,000, then what your friend will receive instead of the 1k is N900, as the 10% has been deducted by Swap Naija for the stipulated transfer charge fee.
