Kindly share this post

If you need an additional source of income, you should look no further than Nigeria’s thriving digital banking industry. You’ll find the best business opportunity there, with PalmPay being the most rewarding fintech to bank with.

With over 30 million users and 1.1 million businesses, including 600,000 merchants and 500,000 agents as part of its cashless payment ecosystem, PalmPay is a perfect platform for those looking to make money in the digital banking space.

One major reason why PalmPay stands out among other competing brands is that its users can send and receive money seamlessly, pay bills effortlessly, and shop with ease, all while earning discounts and cashback performing these tasks.

In Nigeria’s fintech space, no other brand has these financial offerings, except PalmPay. Data even shows that PalmPay has the highest rating on Google Play store in the fintech space.

This article covers the top six most popular features of the PalmPay app that anyone can use to make money from referrals, betting, cashback and discounts, sales and a distinctive financial offering by PalmPay called the Trial Cash.

Refer & Earn

PalmPay’s Refer and Earn feature is a perfect marriage between your contact list and the app’s innovative financial payment offerings. Inviting people you know to register on the PalmPay app and transact can earn you extra good money.

How does it work? When you invite anyone on your contact list using your invite link on the app dashboard, PalmPay pays you for every successful download of the app and transaction that your invites go ahead to make through your referral link.

A fee of N250 is paid to you for every successful referral. You’ll then need to complete five referrals to be eligible to withdraw from your PalmPay wallet for spending from as low as N2,000 and as much as you can earn through successful referrals.

Sports Betting

There are several ways to fund your sports betting account, but none comes close to using PalmPay. This UEFA EURO ‘24 season, PalmPay is bringing you an exciting opportunity to win fantastic prizes, including an iPhone 15 Pro and amazing cash rewards in its Bet and Win Big promo in partnership with iLOT, BetWay, BetCorrect, AccessBet and BetKing. Join in the thrill of the tournament while boosting your chances to win big with our special betting deposits campaign.

From June 14th to July 15th, 2024, make your betting deposits and stand a chance to win an iPhone 15 Pro and share in millions of cash prizes.

Airtime to Cash

You will agree that converting airtime to cash to earn money is an interesting idea. Do you remember back then when you bought more airtime than you needed and didn’t know what to do with the extra airtime? This feature erases that dilemma.

This feature, the first of its kind by a digital payment platform, enables PalmPay users to convert airtime to cash at ease, following just a few simple steps, after which the money equivalent is credited to their PalmPay wallet for onward spending.

As a PalmPay user, should you ever have extra airtime that you do not intend to use and want cash in exchange, all you have to do is click on the Recharge2Cash icon on the app, select the SIM network, enter the OTP sent to your phone, then select the amount you want to convert to cash and finally click on convert.

Cashback & Discounts

PalmPay is big on cashback and discounts. You get rewarded coupons or PalmPoints for almost every transaction on the app, from electricity, airtime and data to cable TV subscriptions. The cashback and discounts are respent on the app.

The cashback and discounts apply for the first five bill payments that you make in a month and range from 15 PalmPoints for your first airtime recharge of N100 to a 2% bonus in PalmPoints when you pay for Cable TV and electricity.

PalmPay offers new users various coupons for them to get cashback and discounts on the bouquet of services available on the app. PalmPay users have the privilege of paying less than the market value for the numerous services on the app.

In-app Promotions

Periodically, PalmPay rewards users with various in-app promotions which involve the users undergoing activities. One such is the ongoing 2023 AFCON tournament which PalmPay is partnering with TECNO, StarTimes and Bet9ja. Users who take part in the PalmPay AFCON Soccer Fiesta stand a chance to share N108 million and win free StarTimes subscriptions, betting coupons and loads of cashback.

Ready to kick off the excitement and make money doing so? Open your PalmPay app now and dive into the AFCON Soccer Fiesta for a chance to win big!

Trial Cash

Another first of its kind by any digital payment platform, the Trial Cash is a distinctive reward designed to let you explore the benefits of the app’s flexible savings feature. As with most PalmPay features, this comes with exciting rewards.

The PalmPay Trial Cash is not real money, however, users of the app are rewarded with a spendable daily interest of 16 per cent per annum sent into their wallet, which they can then go ahead and use to perform different transactions on the app.

Users can earn Trial Cash by completing daily tasks on the app such as transferring to a PalmPay wallet or adding money to their wallet from their bank account or agent.


If you plan not only to spend money this 2024 but also make money, there’s no reason why you should use any other digital payment platform for your transactions. PalmPay offers you incentives that no other platform does.

Not using PalmPay for your daily transactions? Go ahead and download the PalmPay app, follow the CBN KYC directive to update the app with your BVN and NIN and continue to perform transactions and make good money.

NDIC, EFCC Begin Investigation of Directors, Staff of Heritage Bank



Kindly share this post

Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC) has said it will, in conjunction with law enforcement agencies, commence investigation of directors, managers and staff of the defunct Heritage Bank following its liquidation over a month ago.

NDIC, EFCC Begin Investigation of Directors, Staff of Heritage Bank

Mr Bello Hassan, managing director of NDIC, stated this at the 2024 capacity building workshop for law enforcement agencies on ‘Inter-Agency Collaboration in the Fight Against Financial Malpractices in Banks and Other Financial Institutions in Nigeria’ in Lagos yesterday.

Stating that, those behind the collar of the bank will be brought to book, Hassan, who was represented by Mr Bello Hassan, NDIC’s director, Corporate Communications,  noted that, through its collaboration with law enforcement agencies, 14 prosecution cases are ongoing at various courts, 18 ongoing investigation with FMIU, 8 with EFCC and 9:concluded investigations with Federal Ministry of Justice for advice and prosecution.

“The Central Bank of Nigeria recently revoked the banking licence of Heritage Bank PLC which may require you to be called upon to investigate some of the Directors, Managers and officers of this failed insured Institution with a view to bring to book those found culpable in the collapse of this institution.

“The Corporation as a key participant in the financial safety-net, has over the years taken the fight against insider abuses and financial malpractices in banks very seriously. As you all know, a safe and sound banking environment is an essential ingredient of financial system stability which of course is the bedrock for economic development of every nation.

“We are not unaware of the challenges of investigating and prosecuting financial malpractices and bank fraud cases but wish to urge you not to relent in your efforts and be rest assured of our unflinching support at all times,” he pointed out.

Hassan noted that, the theme of the workshop ‘Effective Collaboration as a strategy in the fight against insider abuses and financial malpractices in Banks and Other Financial Institutions in Nigeria’ was to re-echo its resolve to unite with law enforcement agencies in the “fight occasioned by the menace of insider abuses and financial malpractices which is a major cause of bank failure, and if not tackled is  capable of eroding public confidence in our banking system.

“Consequently, and in line with Article 12 of the Core Principles of Effective Deposit Insurance which provides for every Deposit Insurer to put in place the necessary mechanism of bringing to book parties found culpable in the failure of their bank or financial Institution.

“It is for this reason that the NDIC has been consistent since 2012 in organising this workshop to sharpen the skills of law Enforcement operatives and Officers from Regulatory Agencies that are involved in the investigation and prosecution of bank Directors, Managers and staff of banks involved in malpractices and insider abuses that might have led to the collapse of their banks or financial Institutions.


“Change is the only constant thing in life. Most changes in human endeavours come through developments in sciences, technology or innovation. As the banking system is rapidly evolving with new innovations, it is clear that a new phase of financial technology driven economy is currently reshaping the global financial services space.

“With this development, the criminally minded users of the banking system including the notorious ‘’cyber criminals’’ are busy perfecting their misplaced skills and that is why workshops like this are necessary to enable law enforcement officers to understand, accept and adapt to the dynamic operating environment.”

In a press statement, the company said that the initiative marks a significant milestone in leveraging technology to streamline pension verification processes and enhance the welfare of military retirees across Nigeria.

It also stated that, with Federal Government approval, the Military Pensions Board is transitioning from traditional physical verification methods to an advanced electronic system developed and deployed by eTranzact.

According to the statement, Air Vice Marshal Paul Irumheson, chairman of the Pension Board, said the necessity of this transition to electronic verification is crucial for the safety and convenience of military pensioners.

“This innovative solution will ensure that retirees can verify their status from anywhere in the world, significantly reducing the burden of travel and associated risks.

“The successful pilot exercise conducted between February 15 and March 1, 2024, demonstrated the efficiency and reliability of the new system. In addition to developing the verification system, eTranzact has managed salary payments for other government agencies.

“The implementation of this electronic verification system is a critical step towards ensuring foolproof and seamless payment processes within the Military Pensions Board.
