The Kenyan banking sector has been evolving over the years. We have come from far, from people making long, winding and tiring queues in the banking halls to make a transaction to people being able to make transactions via mobile phones.
The EazzyApp by the Equity Bank has revolutionized the banking sector in Kenya. The App has managed to integrate all the banking services that were initially confined to the banking halls to one platform. Having an EazzyApp is like walking around with a whole bank in one’s pocket. Everything that one used to do at the bank is now available on EazzyApp.
The convenience of EazzyPay is that it is not only available on EazzyApp alone but on the Equitel Line SIM Menu enabling those who have subscribed to it to pay for goods, bills and services. There are some interesting facts about EazzyPay that make it unique:
