Stepping into 2020 was exciting as a brand! Just coming off a superb 2019, our teams were fired up to go produce awesome services for customers. And yeah, 2020 was a rollercoaster!
For us, a business year had never been smooth-sailing. Safe to say that it’s these very ups and downs in productivity and customer satisfaction that serves as a background for VTpass to thrive, even in the face of difficulty.
So, we began 2020 with some mad vibes, and here our story of how it went!
N25,000 Weekly Cash-Price
We capped off 2019 with our N25,000 weekly cash price. During this period, over 100 VTpass agents benefited from our program.
In March, we introduced auto-wallet funding; an automatic system that lets you fund your VTpass wallet instantly. With this, we made it easier for customers to fund their wallets, speeding up the time it takes to make a payment on our platform.
There’s nothing better than having more than one way to accomplish a thing. We understand this and added Pay With Bank Transfer to our payment method; giving you not two, but three ways to pay a bill on VTpass.
Everyone looks a little make-up, why not us? Our creative team and developers came together, brainstormed on how to give VTpass website a look. This is the result!
10,000 Terminal Agents!
An unprecedented growth! Over 10,000 terminal agents now partnering with VTpass across Nigeria. Thank you, partners! 2021 is looking good.
VTpass Give-Away Week
To crown it all, we gave away N30,000 worth of airtime and zero-convenience fees payments in our November Give-Away Week. This is giving back to our customers for loyalty and patronage throughout the year.
Our 2020 SWAG story would not be complete without you, dear customer. As a brand, we appreciate you and hope to see more of you come 2021. Thank you for being part of our 2020 SWAG story!
So you mistakenly lost your VTpass password and want to recover it? No shame in that, it happens even to the best of us. The tiny little digits that keep many of our digital activities safe are pretty easy to lose or forget. It’s worst when you use numerous passwords online.
Passwords can be annoying but we can’t do without them. One must simply learn how to keep them safe and how to recall them easily when needed. No one wants a hacker on their trail, that can be scary.
That’s why at VTpass, we made it exceptionally easy for you to get a new password when you forget or lose your current one. Before we dive right into that, you should take a look at 3 simple ways to keep, and never lose or forget, your passwords:
Ok, this may seem like a lot of work, but trust us it works. If you have a hard time remembering all your passwords, simply writing them down in a small jotter you always carry with you, or neatly saving them in your phone’s using a Notes app, can go a long way.
We recommend a Notes app simply because it is easier to copy and paste and accessible at any time.
2. Use Password Managers
Tech has made life easy, and when it comes to passwords, even easier! If you don’t like the idea of noting your passwords, simply make use of a password manager. Password managers are applications that allow you to stores passwords and retrieve them at any time, just like Google Password Manager.
All you have to do is create a master password only you can remember as your password to your password manager. Whenever you create an account doing any online activity, simply store your login details in your password manager. You can download a password management app from Google PlayStore or AppStore.
3. Re-use passwords on similar web activities
Yes, we agree that it is wrong to use a password more than once, but it’s actually easier to remember a password is you are using it to secure two or three online accounts that are related. We are talking about using one password for your emails (maximum of three), one password for your social media accounts (max of three), etc.
When you use one password on related web activities, it is easier to remember. However, never use a password for more than three related web accounts. When it comes to online payments, banking, and wallets, etc, never reuse a password!
So what do you do when you lose or forget your VTpass password? The answer is to simply reset your password! That easy. You cannot retrieve a lost or forgotten VTpass password, but you can always reset it to a password you can remember.
To reset your VTpass password, follow these steps;
A new password will be sent to you via mail and SMS with instructions on resetting your password. Follow the instruction in the mail or SMS sent to you to successfully reset your password. We advise you change the password to the one you can easily remember after you login.

How to Become a Trade Partner
It’s totally free and easy to become a Trade Partner, all
you have to do is:
While many would agree that the biggest reason for staying at a job is the financial incentive earned, others would disagree and throw in reasons like one’s passion, the pursuit of a new challenge, opportunities to learn, etc.
Nevertheless, most people would discover that money is still one of the biggest factors that determine the decision when a better job offer comes along.
It is not unreasonable to be money-driven however, there are other factors to consider and questions to ask before making a decision, including;
What do I want for my job, career, and life?
Most people make a huge mistake while quitting their job thinking they’ll just update their resume and start networking without being thoughtful about what their wants and how to get there.
For instance, studying to become a medical doctor maybe interesting but it will not help you achieve the flexible schedule you want. So also, if you’d like to make a career change, think about all the necessary steps. They may include more school, lower pay, or working your way up from the bottom–again.
What can you get from your current job?
If you love your current job and only have a problem with the payment, you may consider asking for a justifiable raise from your boss.
However, if your employer is unable to review your salary, you can negotiate for other incentives like flexible working hours, etc.
Also, outline your job description and compare it with the industry pay-scale to see if your current pay matches.
Do I have enough saved to cover nine to 12 months of expenses?
Financial planner, Susan Hirshman says a few years ago she told people to save enough for six months of expenses. Now she tells people they need nine to 12 months.
Hirshman suggests mapping out fixed expenses like credit cards, transportation, and food, as well as factoring in the “what if” costs.
Is the Time right?
The best factor to consider before quitting a job is the timing.
Consider if you have commitments that you have to fulfill. Are you’re in the middle of a busy season or working on a big project? You may want to honor those commitments so that your team isn’t left behind and you’re able to leave on good terms.
Also, it might be smart to wait a little longer if you’d like to receive your quarterly bonus, holiday vacation, and other bonuses.
Do I have the support of my family and friends?
Not many consider this factor but quitting your job affects the people in your life, so it’s important that you have an honest conversation with your family first. Your spouse or children may need to help or at least participate in some of your cost-cutting plans and need to be involved from the beginning.
Having a support system of friends or close colleagues who can help keep you on track while looking for a new job would be in your best interest.
Switching or quitting a job may sound fancy and look a lot more interesting than it actually is, which is why it is advisable to consider all factors before making a decision. If you are only interested in looking for simple ways to earn extra income, be sure to add VTpass partnership programs to your checklist.
If you are active on social media you must have seen a lot of ads of people trying to teach one online business or the other during this period of global lockdown.

So you have
signed up as a terminal agent expecting to make good money but it has not quite
happened for you yet?
I know that
at this point, you are probably frustrated with the difficulty of getting
people to patronise you as a terminal agent. Who will not be frustrated anyway?
What’s the point of having a business if nobody is patronising you?
race of getting customers for your terminal agent business can be frustrating
but you can avoid it being a rat race by targeting a select group of customers who are most likely to buy.
customers can be a herculean task for a any business, but with these few
pointers we about to give you, you would be on your way to getting a good chunk
of customers. Here are a few steps to take:
Know Your Business Inside and Out
like an obvious thing to do but trust me, it is not. When trying to convince
prospective customers to buy, explaining exactly what you want for them is the
easiest way to get them interested in the brand. Therefore, the importance of
you knowing your business through and through can not be overemphasized. For it
is only when you know your business inside out that you will be able to explain
it to a prospective customer.
Identify Your Ideal Client
Identifying your ideal client is an important step in getting customers through the door and running a sustainable business. As Brian Tracy says in this blog post for Entrepreneur.com , The ability to find a customer, sell your product or service to that customer, and satisfy the customer so that he buys from you again should be the central focus of all entrepreneurial activity
Who do you
think are more likely to buy from you? Your friends? Your classmates? Your
family members? Whoever they are, you have to take the first step of
identifying them, their habits, where they hang out and in this case, how they pay
bills. This is your first step in attracting them because when you know
them, then you can approach them.
Discover Where Your Customer Lives
defining who your target customers are, the next step is to find out where they
live. Well- not literally in many cases, but the idea is to know their needs
and where to meet them at the point of that need.
When you do
that, you are at a lot of advantage to convert them quickly.
Position Yourself as the Answer
Now that you know where your customers live and where to meet them at the point of their needs, you want to position yourself as the go-to person that will solve their problems. Take for instance a middle-aged Papa Nkechi who finds it difficult to pay his Gotv bills. He travels 100km to the community hub where he normally pays his Gotv bill. If you position yourself close to his neighbourhood, he will naturally be more than happy to patronise your business! So as you can see, positioning yourself as the answer to people’s problem comes with a lot of perks and trust me, people have a lot of problems with bill payments.
We are all a part of a community, and there is no better place to start promoting your terminal agent business than in your community. For one, your close community is possibly your strongest support system and they are always almost certainly within the proximity of your business.
More so, as
Jacob McMillenputs it in this post
for Yotpo, 92% of consumers will believe a recommendation from friends and
family over ANY other type of advertising. Therefore, you can see the huge
potential that your word of mouth advertising has for.
Go out today, call that friend, send a WhatsApp broadcast message and tell your community that you are open for business.
Nigerian businesses fail when it comes to following up their customers after
they have made a purchase and that is a counterproductive action. We spend a
lot of money and/or time to get new customers through the door and when they buy,
we just abandon them even though it is a lot cheaper and more probable to get
returning customers to buy/patronise us. This culture is more mind-blowing when
you realise that, according to Kissmetrics, it’s
nearly 7 times
less expensive to retain an existing customer than to gain a new one.
So you can
see that you don’t want that happening to you. You want to get as many
returning customers as possible, and the best way to do that is by following
them up. That customer that buys DSTV subscription from you monthly, you should
probably keep a record of him and call him to remind him when his subscription
is about to expire. The lady that normally recharges her IKEDC prepaid metre
with you, you should reach out and ask her if she knows how to input the token
on her meter. T
times when customers will not be able to come down to your physical location in
order to pay and they would probably transfer the money to you to help conduct
the transaction. Helping them do the transaction in a timely and transparent
fashion will engender trust in your customers and trust is an important
ingredient that will help you business grow in the short and long term.
These a few pointers as to how you can keep attracting both new and returning customers to your business. One of the most important point to note here is that is while it is exciting and exhilarating to get new customers, it is even better to retain a returning customer as he or she is a lot easier to convert. Also, you have to start where you are and do what you can. Don’t wait until you have a thousand customers, start with word of mouth in your community and scale up as your business grows.
You are already partnering with a brand that has your best interest at heart, so why shouldn’t you succeed? Take advantage of our 24/7 customer support channels, competitive commission rates, and excellent service delivery to satisfy customer needs and power your business Good luck!
Third party car insurance is a compulsory policy required for all car owners in Nigeria and is backed by law.
Third party car insurance cover or liability cover is a policy which protects the car owner or driver of the vehicle against any legal liability, accidental liability, financial loss or property damage, medical expense cover in the event of an injury to or even death of any third party arising out of their vehicle.
Asides from being a mandatory requirement for using the road for drivers, below are other benefits of having third-party auto insurance:
Provides Legal Cover and Financial Assistance:
Third-party auto insurance covers the insured person’s legal liability in case of death or disability to any third party, and any loss or damage to a third party property.
Ensures Peace of Mind:
Third-party auto insurance brings peace of mind when dealing with any traumatic situation that hinges on financial payments. Hence, instead of worrying further about such unforeseen expenses, the focus is just on the immediate relief from stress and coping up with the incident.
Third-party auto insurance gives you confidence when you get into a road accident and also covers you against violent reactions in cases of accident/loss.
Easy Round the Clock Availability of Third Party Car Insurance:
Unlike other insurance policies that are limited to only the offline method of renewal or application, VTpass third-party auto insurance is easily available online round-the-clock i.e 24/7, and 365 days a year from any location.
The shift of burden:
With third-party insurance, you do not need to worry over the third-party loss as the Insurer supports you in such instance.
Now that you understand why it is so important to invest in a third party car insurance, always remember that this is the best way to gain comprehensive coverage against losses that you might incur if your car gets damaged, stolen or causes injury, death, and damage to third-party or third party property.
What & How Can You Invoke The Third-Party Insurance Policy?
Anytime you get involved in any of the scenarios mentioned in the previous paragraphs (and covered in the insurance contract); all you need to do is file a claim. You can file a claim directly via the Insurance Company or the agent that underwrote the insurance policy for you. Make sure you have clear photo evidence, and receipts (in case you paid for part or the full claims already).
Introducing its latest feature and the cheapest third-party auto insurance deal into the Nigeria market, VTpass now offers third-party car insurance for as low as #3,000 naira only.
insurance generally, is an insurance policy purchased for protection against
the claims of another i.e it is meant for the protection of other road users
while you use our car.
For instance, if you insure your car on third
party only insurance (the premium is N3,000 naira), and you get involved in a
road accident where you are at fault, the insurance company will be liable for
the repair of the other person’s car while you repair your own car. Also, if
you damage somebody’s property like a building’s fence in an accident, the
fence will be repaired by the insurance company. However, you should take note
that there is a certain limit to what the insurance company will pay for motor
third party property damage. The maximum is N1,000,000.00, but some can pay as
high as N2,000,000.00.
A lot of Nigerian drivers have wrong perceptions about auto insurance policies and only subscribe to it because it is among the vehicle license documents legally required for them to use the road. In fact, only 1 in 100 car owners understand that third party car insurance is not just a document for road usage, but a savior in times of unexpected occurrences. When you run into Police or other agency roadblocks, and your car particulars are checked, if you do not possess third-party insurance, you would be arrested.
Regardless, check out how to Purchase third-party Auto Insurance policy:
While the rainy season this year may seem to have arrived earlier than usual, we are very glad that the hot air has been lifted.
Marked with increased rainfall, thunderstorms, high winds, and flood, the rainy season could see a lot of electrical accidents, especially since water is a good conductor of electricity.
However, that informs the need for us to pay more attention to safety when dealing with electrical appliances this season.
Here are a few electrical safety tips you may need in this rainy season:
Stay away from Flooded Areas:
Everyone is adviced to stay indoor or to find the closest shelter in the event of rain or storm. But if you have to go out, it would be wise to avoid flooded areas, especially those close to heavy electrical equipment.
2. Stay away from power lines during a storm:
The human body is a ready conductor of electricity and as such, It is advised that you stay at least 10 feet away from a power line and anything touching it.
The proper way to move away from the line is to shuffle away with small steps, keeping your feet together and on the ground at all times. This way, it will minimize the potential for a strong electric shock.
3. Never leave Cut Wires astray:
In cases where you have wires on the floor or lying on the road in your area, it will be wise to either get a DisCo official to reconnect or safely tuck away the wires before the event of a rainstorm.
These wires may cause severe electrical hazards if they come in contact with water (provided current is flowing through the wire).
4. Avoid outdoor electrical tasks during rainfall:
Avoid high altitude during rainfall, as that presents a real danger of being struck by lightning – especially when climbing poles.
Never attempt electrical chores if you are not a trained engineer but if you have to, avoid doing this under the rain.
5. Take caution when close to Water:
Never touch anything electrical with wet hands or bare feet, always use caution when operating electrical appliances near water sources and all appliances.
