Please note:

If you deposit from a Naira account, you can only withdraw to a Naira account.

If you deposit from a USD account, you can only withdraw to a USD account.

If you have made deposits from both channels, the percentage of deposits from one channel is the percentage of withdrawals that can be made to that same channel. E.g. If 20% of your deposits are from a Naira account, then 20% of withdrawals will also be to a Naira account.

​Withdrawals to Naira accounts have a 45 Naira fee. Withdrawals to a USD account have a $45 fee.
