If you use Access Bank Debit / Visa card and you tend to make payments online, you probably would be wondering what the current exchange rate is. Or perhaps, what is the Access Bank Dollar to Naira exchange rate.
Well, as you probably already know, the Naira to Dollar exchange rate has been on the rise for a while now.
Until recently, Access Bank exchange rate for Dollar to Naira has been around N335 for months now. However, that has changed with much difference.
I paid for an online service today and the price was just $4.46 (4.46 USD). Using my Access Bank Visa Card which i linked to my PayPal account, I was charged N1650.20.
Doing the maths, Access Bank charged me N370 per dollar. Hence, if you are wondering what Access Bank current exchange rate is for a dollar, it is N370.
A friend, earlier today, mentioned that GTB charged her N350 per dollar. That’s N20 difference between both banks.
While the difference is small, at least for the kind of payment I just made, imagine buying something online worth $1000. That would be a difference of N20,000 between both banks.
Anyway, the point is, Access Bank PLC currently charges N370 per dollar which in my opinion, is on the high side.
