The NIBSS code, also known as the Nigeria Inter-Bank Settlement System code, is used for several purposes in Nigerian banking, primarily related to electronic transfers and account validation. The code is essential for sending and receiving funds electronically between accounts held in different Nigerian banks. When initiating a transfer, you'll typically provide the recipient's NIBSS code along with their account number. This code ensures the smooth routing of funds between banks.

Some Nigerian banks utilize the NIBSS code for account verification processes. This can occur during online or mobile banking transactions where the system might check the NIBSS code to confirm the existence and validity of the beneficiary account before proceeding with the transfer.

By employing NIBSS codes, Nigerian banks add an extra layer of security to electronic transactions. It helps prevent fraudulent transfers by ensuring funds are directed to the intended recipient's bank.

In essence, the NIBSS code acts as a unique identifier for banks within the Nigerian Inter-Bank Settlement System, streamlining and securing electronic fund transfers between different financial institutions.

Here is the list of banks classified into Commercial Banks, Fintechs, and Microfinance Banks along with their sort/NIBSS codes:
