Diamond Bank to Access Bank New Codes
In line with the recent Diamond Bank and Access Bank merger, we’ve scheduled a maintenance update between 12 AM and 2 AM (WAT) on Sunday, April 8, 2019. During this maintenance process, we’ll change the name “Diamond Bank” to “Access Bank (Diamond).” All previous bank codes will remain valid.
What will change?
- Cards issued by the former “Diamond Bank” will be reported as issued by “Access Bank (Diamond)”
- When you make transfers to account holders at the bank, you’ll have to select “Access Bank (Diamond)” as the recipient bank name on the Paystack Dashboard
- When you split payments to account holders at this bank, you’ll have to select “Access Bank (Diamond)” as the recipient bank name on the Paystack Dashboard.
If you have any code or logic that expects the old name, “Diamond Bank”, please make preparations for this change.
Please note that you won’t have to edit existing transfer recipients or subaccounts – the maintenance exercise will auto-update them.
If like most people, you don’t have any code or logic that expects the old name, then you don’t have to do anything.
If you have any questions at all, please feel free to reply to this email.
Abdulrahman, and the Paystack team
