Commenting on the recent development,Joshua Chibueze,Co-founder of PiggyVest said “the Flex account number, a virtual account number created with Providus bank is basically an extra payment option that allows users to fund their wallets using bank transfer or USSD from any bank. We worked hard with the guys at TeamApt to achieve this. It’s been in the works for months now and we’re thrilled to finally see how users adopt this. He added that in  the coming weeks, there will be other banks, working with other payment processors, to issue virtual account numbers and the customers will then have the option to select their preferred bank.”
