Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Figures from the bank of Ghana indicate the Agricultural Development

Bank (ADB)has the highest ATM charge in the country's banking


According to the figures which were published by the Bank of Ghana in

February 2015, as at December 2014 customers from ADB pay 50 pesewas

per an ATM transaction they make.

ADB is followed by Prudential bank which has the second highest ATM charge.

Its customers are charged 40 pesewas for every cash withdrawn using the ATM.

The third bank which charges you the most when you withdraw cash

through their ATM is SGSSB at 35 pesewas with GT bank coming in at

number four with 30 pesewas for a withdrawal.

Three banks First Bank of Nigeria, Bank of Africa (BOA) and National

Investment Bank (NIB) wrestle over the number five position with all

of them charging 25 pesewas for an ATM transaction.

While five banks Sahel Sahara Bank (BSIC), Access bank, Cal bank,

First Atlantic bank and HFC bank all charge their customers 20 pesewas

for every withdrawal made at the ATM machine.

So which banks charge you the least when you make a withdrawal at the ATM.

The least charge comes from Ecobank with a charge of 10 pesewas

followed by Zenith bank with a 18 pesewas charge.

Think those charges are low? well wait till you read this and you will

realize their efforts are not good enough.

Well it turns out that 10 banks in the country do not charge you at

all for an ATM transaction.

The banks are Barclays bank, Standard Charted bank, Stanbic bank,

United Bank for Africa (UBA), bank of Baroda, GCB, Universal Merchant

bank, UT Bank, Royal bank and First Capital Plus bank.

But if you are yet to see how much your bank charges it appears it

falls in the monthly charge category.

That category is filled with a bunch of banks which charge you monthly

for the same amount no matter how much or how less you use the ATM.

They are Energy bank which charges you 1 cedi per month for an

internal withdrawal and 20 pesewas per external transaction , Fidelity

bank for between 1 cedi 50 pesewas and 3 cedis per month while Unibank

charges you 1 cedi per month for ATM transactions.
