GTbank’s Livechat customer service is working


I’ve tried to use the Livechat feature on many bank websites but most of them seem inactive.

If have a stable internet connection and don’t fancy wasting your credit by being put on hold, you can try the Livechat feature. They let you know what the expected wait time is, you you always know if it’s a good idea to wait, or if it’s better to try at a later time.

It’s available from 8am – 5pm during the working week, do do try and contact them in this time window.

You can access them directly via:

All the best!

  • Pls help me wih my account its nt paying me and the money is for my school fees

    • Hi, is it a savings account? Have you contacted GTBank customer service?

      mrpepe September 23, 2015 7:06 am
  • Your online customer services here seem the poorest i’ve ever experienced in my whole life. Imagine one waiting to be responded to for hours without common ”hi” being said from any of your staff…

    Joseph November 6, 2015 1:12 pm
    • Do you mean me or GTBank? I would agree that the Livechat has been quite poor of recent – especially since the BVN deadline. Perhaps priorities have shifted, who know?

      mrpepe November 6, 2015 1:56 pm
  • A very good morning to you gtbank, my name is orelope jamiu, i enrol for my bvn digit at one of your branch but they only give me an ID number ever since then have kept trying to get bvn number but have not been given. i will appreciate it if you can help me to verify if the bvn have been done.

    Prince December 8, 2015 12:56 pm
    • Hi Prince, I think you need to activate your card. Please visit your branch with the card or call +234 700 48266 6328 on how to do this.

      mrpepe December 11, 2015 9:01 pm

  • I wanted to withdraw money at wema bank ATM on Wednesday as the money coming out and it went back to the ATM machine and my money was debited and am convinced that where should I go and complaint,is it wema Bank or my gtbank

    oyerinde noah January 8, 2016 12:10 pm
    • Hi, you should have immediately gone into the Wema bank branch as soon as it happened, to complain. What would happen is that a member of staff should put the ATM “out of service”, check the ATM for any discrepancies and then refund you the difference if need be.

      Also make a complaint with GTBank, but I’m guessing the problem might have been from the ATM dispenser in question. All the best.

  • My token as been blocked . Please and i dont have the toekn id number

    victor February 2, 2016 2:13 pm
    • Hi Victor, did you enter the wrong passcode too many times? I would suggest you take it into the branch – they will resolve this. I don’t think the tokens can be remotely reset.

      mrpepe February 2, 2016 10:15 pm
  • Goodday,

    omotayo July 20, 2016 2:44 pm
    • You can do this by text. To block your ATM card, simply text ‘HOTLIST’ and your NUBAN Account Number e.g
      HOTLIST 0123456789 to 08076665555.

      mrpepe July 20, 2016 10:52 pm
  • If I close my account will I get all my balance?

    simeon July 21, 2016 2:21 am
    • Hi Simeon,

      You should transfer or withdraw your balance before closing your account.

      mrpepe July 21, 2016 11:48 am
      • Can i still withdraw before closing d account while my account is still being restricted?

        simeon July 21, 2016 4:08 pm
        • Hi Simeon,

          You won’t be able to withdraw money from your account while it is restricted. You will need to go into the bank to supply whatever information they require to remove the restriction from your account.

          mrpepe July 22, 2016 9:56 pm

  • Hi, i am in the UK now and i used my naira mastercard to make a POS transaction (worth 19 GBP) and I am shocked that GT bank is charging almost the same amount used for the transaction. Please can you help me understand what is going on?

    Emmanuel Unuabonah July 29, 2016 7:11 am
    • Hi Emmanuel,

      I’m afraid it depends on what rates GT sets for the day. It helps if you have 2 bank cards, if you check the rates prior to transacting so you can use the cheaper of the two.

      mrpepe August 1, 2016 10:37 am

  • I have just noticed that I can have access to comments left by other people and as such other people can also have access to my comments as they follow themselves in sequential display. This has all the appearances of a breach of the confidentiality that should exist between a bank and its customer and can lead to many untoward consequences. GTB is too big, professionally managed and strongly risk conscious not to have noticed this. Kindly rectify it.

    Afolabi Yakubu Olayiwola September 25, 2016 1:11 am
    • Hi Afolabi,

      Thanks for your message but this is a private blog, not the GTBank website. To visit GTBank, see This is my personal blog, which allows threaded comments to be publicly displayed.
