Following a comment on a post where I had talked on the UBA Africard which is verified by VISA, a reader stated that he tried using his card for making some payment online but the card was declined and her on this post, I’d want to write on how to Use Your UBA Africard Online Successfully.
Personally, I have been using the UBA Africard since sometime last year and I have not been having issues with it as I have been using it to pay for services on major sites like godaddy(domain name), hostgator(hosting last year), hawkhost(hosting monthly) Facebook advertising, Google Adword Advertising, and even paying for Mobstac Service(for ogbongeblogger this year) hence, I have not been having issues using the card anywhere.
I actually reduced my urge to using the card when I realized that my GTB mastercard can also be used in most sites tho not all and GTB is where I’d keep my funds most times.
If you are having problems using your card in making payments online then there is a possibility that you are not inputting the card details properly so on this post I’d want to give you a run down on how you can conduct a transaction successfully.
How To Use UBA Africard Online For Successful Payment
First, like I had stated on my previous post relating to this, there are basic two types of Africard, the personalized and the unpersonalized and you will be asked which would you like to go for upon requesting for the card, personally I use a unpersonalized uba africard(tho thinking of getting the personalized one soon) and here’s run down on how to use it.
When trying to make payment on any site, first make sure the site accepts VISA, if they do then you are good to go because the UBA Africard is verified by VISA.
When inputting your card details, where its stated that you enter the card details, enter the 16 digits card number which is the bold numbers at the front of the card.
When asked Name on Card, for a non-personalized card, use UBA CARDHOLDER as the name on card and not your name, unless you are using a personalized card then you can use your name which will be clearly written on your card.
When asked card expiring date, am pretty sure you know how to get that right? If you don’t, then take a close look at your card, its stated below your card number before your card name, just search for ‘EXPIRES END»‘ have you got the expiry date number? That’s good, now use that in the details online.
When asked CCV, just turn your card to the back and look for the three numbers after some white closed space, seen that? That’s the CCV number for your card, do keep this private and confidential.
After putting those details, click proceed or OK to continue with the payment, you used get a successful payment transaction complete and an alert on your card that payment have been taken and that’s it, you have been able to successfully make payment online using your UBA Africard, hope this was helpful?
