Previously, they placed the transfer limit on the FirstMonie Mobile App at NGN500,000 per day until they increased it to NGN1,000,000.

How To Increase Your Transfer Limit

If you are a First Bank customer and you have been searching for ways to increase your first bank mobile transfer limits, here we are.

Below are the various steps to undertake in order to get an increment to your transfer limit below:

  1. Visiting The Bank/Through The Bank Attendant

  • Ensure correctly that you have your bank account documents ready alongside an identity card, preferably the National ID or the Voters Card.
  • Visit the First bank branch nearest to you.
  • Lodge a complaint and the bank attendant will ensure the increment is active in an instant.
  1. Getting A First Bank Hardware Token

This option also requires you to visit the nearest branch to you, without the documents as opposed to the one listed above. You do not need the documents when requesting a token.

All that is needed is to fill out a form handed over to you by the bank representative and wait for a review by the necessary department, and receive your token once the approval has been granted.

The hardware token is a pocket-sized device that must be with you whenever you want to make a transfer.

  1. Getting A First Bank Software Token

Another way of getting an increment to your transfer limit is by requesting a software token from your bank, and it is more advisable to get it than the hardware token.

All you need to have is a valid bank account, a smartphone, and a good internet connection. Once all these are available, you can proceed by following the guide;

  • Go to your phone app store, search and download the FirstToken App
  • Once you do that, launch the app and you will find a serial number and activation code field.
  • The serial number field is for the Hardware token, and the activation code field is for the Software token.
  • Visit the nearest First Bank branch to you and request an activation code. They will give you.

How To Register/Activate First Bank Mobile App
