It is now possible to use your local ATM card to access your account or make withdrawals from the ATMs of other banks.
But you can enjoy that service currently if you bank with some nine banks which have linked their systems to the national platform christened ‘gh-link.’
They are Ghana Commercial Bank, Standard Chartered Bank, Agriculture Development Bank and Zenith Bank. The rest are HFC Bank, United Bank for Africa (UBA), UT Bank, Prudential Bank and the Bank of Africa.
This latest achievement by the Ghana Interbank Payment and Settlement Systems (GhIPSS), implies that customers of these nine banks can use each other’s ATM.
Four other banks, Ecobank, Unibank, Guaranty Trust Bank and Energy Bank will shortly join the league of the banks and create convenience for their customers.
Even before the service is launched, customers of banks have begun enjoying the service.
Officials of GhIPSS have said the service will be formally launched by the middle of next month.
