Why we need your BVN?

We are glad you asked!
Your BVN is needed so as to verify your account with us and also specify what bank account to make payouts to. So it's basically a form of bank account verification and a very important step.
Payouts are done automatically to the bank account associated with the chosen BVN and in less than 24 hours.
