UBA Visa AfriCard – A Better Alternative To PayPal Payment Method For Nigerians

Following the fact that Nigerians are not allowed to use PayPal accounts in the sense that Nigerians aren’t allowed to register for a PayPal account and having at the back of your mind that almost 90% of internet business ventures use online payments that requires Paypal as means of payment and also the use of credit card.

Quite alright, i understand that PayPal accounts can be opened and verified as a Nigerian through some sorts of ip changing method and others but that doesn’t guarantee the fact that it won’t be limited someday.

My quest to owning a PayPal account actually got me dumped by shopvcc.com when i tried buying a paypal verification card and ever since then i decided to clear my mind towards getting a verified paypal account at least for the now although i have learnt my lessons and have understood how to get and verify a paypal account.

Understanding the fact that most online business ventures that require payments via paypal also have options for payment via credit card, choosing the credit card option could really be the best alternative to paypal.

UBA AfriCard Visa


Not all visa or MasterCard credit cards issued to you from your local bank in Nigeria are accepted online as a means of payment but ever since i started paying for services and more online, UBA Africard has been the perfect solution for me.

UBA Africard was introduced to me by my friend who runs dapsonblog.com as i have always loved using the card.

Although i wouldn’t say i have paid for goods or services at every online business venture but most of the things i have always wanted to pay for, i have done so successfully via the use of my UBA Africard which is visa verified.

Most of the sites i have successfully used this card on are namecheap.com(bought a domain for a friend)godaddy.com(bought domain for a friend), hostgator.com(bought an hosting account for a client), hostwinds.com(bought hosting for one of my blog), hawkhost.com etc.

I have successfully used my UBA Africard on the above sites as a means of payment via credit card option without hustles hence, i believe its going to work for you too as long as you fill in the correct details along side sufficient funds in your account.

I need not worry about getting a PayPal account now for the sake of online payments as my UBA Africard serves as the best alternative right now.

In my subsequent posts, i will be writing on requirements to getting your own UBA Africard so stay tuned to trueinternetworld blog and enjoy :-).
