Written by Akeem Alao

Following its accreditation by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to provide ePINs and forms for candidates looking to register for the JAMB/UTME examinations, Interswitch, a foremost Pan-African digital payment and commerce company has announced the opening of its platforms for the 2019 JAMB/UTME registrations.

All candidates who aspire to sit the 2019 examinations only need to obtain ePINs and forms from enabled Interswitch platforms such as Quickteller Mobile App/Web, Quickteller Paypoint (Agents), via payment with Interswitch WebPAY on JAMB’s website and through payment using Interswitch Paydirect at any bank branch nationwide.

The Group Head, Corporate Solutions at Interswitch, Olawale Akanbi, explained in a statement that the Interswitch platforms have been enhanced to make the registration process easier for the candidates.

He said, “We have provided a variety of payment platforms that are reliable, user-friendly and very secure. Candidates have varied options across the Interswitch platforms.

“This includes a payment collection solution that allows them to make payment at any bank branch and other channels, including ATMs and mobile.”

According to the statement, to avoid the conceivable difficulties associated with the registration process, prospective candidates can send their “First Name Middle Name Last Name” to short code “55019”.

In addition, students are expected to send the candidate acknowledging receipt of the request.

After that, “A process code is sent to the candidate via SMS. Candidate takes code to Quickteller App/Web, Bank Branch, or Quickteller Paypoint Agent Location, then, provides unique ID to proceed with the payment.

“Candidate can now proceed with the payment via Quickteller App/Web, Bank Branch, or Quickteller Paypoint Agent Location.

“Since its accreditation by JAMB in 2017, Interswitch has successfully enabled a seamless registration process for UTME candidates, providing up to 30,000 ePINs daily.
