BuyPower doesn’t have hidden charges, like others which I’ve reviewed below. But first, note that Only N100 is charged for their service charge.

Then what happens if buying from Bank?

For instance; It might shock you to know today that most financial apps like OPay, and Banks like GTBank purchases electricity bill from BuyPower to supply their customers.

It doesn’t just end there. Setting up electricity bill payments from those financial apps (mobile wallets) and Banks, still maintains its N100 charges, while those mobile wallets and banks still collect their charges too.

For instant, I purchased a token Unite of N5,000, through my GTBank and at the end of the transaction only to notice that an additional N344.55 was deducted (by the bank) as a service charge.

Even after buying through those channels, BuyPower still delivers the receipt (token) to the client’s email address and via SMS showing the token, PLUS other charges. What does that tell you? It is better to head to and buy your electricity bills directly.

Download App

The app is available on both Android and iOS app stores. But in order to avoid downloading the wrong one, the link below has been provided. Please use the link below for your type of device and you’ll be redirected to app download page
