NIN, NIN, NIN… What Next?
Last year, we announced a stop to our NIN verification service in line with the official mandate from NIMC to switch to the Virtual NIN service.
We realize that this switch hasn’t been easy for you to transition to, as some of your customers still use their NIN.
Based on your recent feedback, we totally understand your frustrations with the VNIN service. Still, we want to reassure you that this service is one of the most compliant ways to verify customers in Nigeria.
Our other services remain available to you upon request via API and the web portal.
If you’re still confused about the VNIN service, here’s an updated release on what you need to know to make the transition as smooth as possible for your business and customers.
