The fourth annual AMMBAN Lagos Symposium, with the topic “the impact of cashless policy on mobile money & agency banking,” saw the release of the new pricing list.
The new pricing was decided upon by the Association in an effort to prevent extortion by POS agents on the general public and is also a reflection of the present economic condition in the country, according to Abiodun David, head of the AMMBAN, Lagos state chapter.
David said that although POS agents may go below the pricing list based on their location, they are not allowed to go over the pricing list.
