How Do I Withdraw Money From My AlertPay Account?

I wrote about AlertPay sometime ago in a post titled How to receive Payment Online. AlertPay, which is a Canadian Online Payment Processing Company,  is a competitor to the widely known PayPal Online Payment Processor. PayPal has refused to allow many African Entrepreneurs (especially Nigerians) to use its facility in conducting business online. Their reason being that those nations harbor SCAM Artists (I wonder if PayPal action can be justified as being fair, since every nation has their own set of black-sheep).

I strongly encourage African Entrepreneurs, especially Nigerian Entrepreneurs to subscribe to AlertPay service. Opening an account with them is free. You only pay fees when you are withdrawing or spending money from your account. This is similar to the bank charges that local banks takes for providing you with their service. You can get your free AlertPay Account by clicking any of the links or the banner below.


Free AlertPay Account

Well, AlertPay has proved to be a good competitor and they allow African Entrepreneurs including Nigerians to do business online using their payment processing facility. Of recent, I have received mails and IM’s requesting to know how an African Entrepreneur can withdraw fund from the AlertPay account into a local bank account.

The answer is simple and can easily be found on their website at the following url (please, copy and paste url into your browser) However, for convenience sake, I will simply explain what is written there.

Depending on where you reside there are three (3) ways you can withdraw money from your AlertPay account.

1. You can request for a Check from AlertPay

You can then pay same into your domiciliary account with the local bank. All countries that are allowed to subscribe to AlertPay are eligible for this. In some countries, the cheque might take about 21days to get cleared.

2. You can request for a Direct Deposit into your local bank account

You can only use this method  if your country of residence is eligible for such service. Please note that Nigeria is not eligible for such service. Only three countries in Africa are eligible, namely South Africa, Reunion and Mayotte.

3. You can request for Bank Wire Transfer

Almost all African Countries are eligble for this, except Republic of Congo.

I do hope this brief explanation puts to rest the fear of my fellow African Entrepreneurs who want to know How they can withdraw Fund from AlertPay into their local bank account.

See you at the top, Cheers.

Update: Please note that AlertPay was bought over by Payza in March, 2012. Payza offer the same service AlertPay was offering and much more.

    Are you sure that it is really this easy?

    • NaijaEcash says:

      Well, I can understand your skepticism. But there are many who testify that ALERTPAY is a good alternative to Paypal in Nigeria and you can get your fund out whenever you want to. The only downside to ALERTPAY is the fact that it is more expensive than PayPal and also, it does not have as much coverage as Paypal. Maybe because it is newer in the market than PayPal. Cheers.

    please if i want to registered for alertpay how much am going to use to register, or how much are they going to take from my account. i know that alertpay is the best way online money transfer

    • NaijaEcash says:

      You register for free! You don’t have to pay any money. The only time you pay money is when you start using the account to receive money. AlertPay will collect a small fee for the service they are providing. Also, if you want someone to fund the account for you, they will charge you by exchange at a rate that is higher than what you can ordinarily exchange Dollar for. I hope this helps. Cheers.

    thanks for the enlightenment.I’ve opened my alert pay account and it has been verified through my mobile number.Is it compulsory to verify my account using credit card.Thanks a lot!

  11. Arogundade Damilola says:

    Can you pls help me sir to find solution to this my problem? In the course of verifying my acct i used my master card from gtb and certain amount was deducted from d acct and i was alerted through text message on my phone. Unfourtunately,i lost the phone. Due to this i was not able to get the correct amount deducted in dollars. Hence i was not able to verify my account with my master card. Pls what can i do?

    • NaijaEcash says:

      I think the simple solution is to request for your bank statement from GTBank. From the statement, you will know exactly the amount that was deducted. Alternatively, you can ask your account officer in GTBank to check for you. All you need is the amount deducted so that you can input it in AlertPay. Cheers
