With Cash Deposit Machine (CDM), you can send cash directly into your bank account instead of despencing and debiting your bank account.

In Nigeria today, there are many CDM that's currently installed at most commercial banks. The first bank I see this machine is GTBANK at Ogba Lagos. Other banks including FCBM, Fidelity Bank, United Bank for Africa (UBA), First Bank of Nigeria (FBN), Access Bank and others have already implemented the Cash Deposit Machine.

The interest part of these machine is that, it can allows you to deposit cash from other bank's CDM to your bank account. For instance, you can deposit cash from FCMB's CDM to Access Bank Account.

However, it's important to let you know that not all ATMs are CDMs. Identify your bank's CDM network by checking with your bank's customer service to confirm which machines accept cash deposits before proceeding to depositing cash.
