Before Sterling Bank introduced the recharge USSD codes, customers had to visit ATMs or download the Sterling Bank mobile app to be able to recharge from their accounts.

Needless to say, using a simple USSD code to recharge from your account is easier and faster than using ATMs or the mobile app.

But before you start, you need to first of all register for the USSD service by dialing *822*1*NUBAN# using the phone number linked to your account and following the on-screen instructions.

How to top-up airtime using Sterling Bank Recharge code

  • To recharge for yourself, dial *822*AMOUNT# (e.g *833*200#).
  • To recharge for someone else or a number not linked to your Sterling bank account, dial *822*AMOUNT*MOBILE NO# (e.g *822*200*08012345678#).
  • After dialing any of the above codes, enter your USSD banking PIN or the last 4 digits of your ATM card number to confirm your transaction.

Afterwards, you’ll receive a debit alert from Sterling bank and a message from recipients network provider confirming the top-up via VTU.

Recharge charges & limits


Using Sterling bank recharge code is absolutely free. Which means, you don’t pay any other fee aside from your exact amount you want recharge.


You can recharge a maximum of 20,000 naira airtime daily and per transaction. If you wish to increase this daily limit, visit any Sterling bank branch near you or contact customer care online.
