You Can Now Use UBA Naira Debit Card For International Transactions

Hello guys, You can now use your UBA Naira Debit Card to shop internationally BUT for a Limited Period. That's the good news we have from United Bank for Africa this week.

It seems things are getting better in the banking sector following the Naira's gradual improvement. Some banks are now lifting limitations placed on our very own Naira master card. Meaning you don't need to stress yourself any longer in order to get a barter virtual master card because you can now use your naira master card to shop online.

Recall Ecobank was the first to lift the limitation from $300 to $3000 per month and Guaranty Trust Bank ( GTB) also followed suite by lifting their own ban. Although some people are not still able to use their naira Mastercard to pay for goods and services online. A reader of this blog contacted me yesterday and narrated how the bank declined the transaction he made on Amazon with GTBank Mastercard and you come to wonder why they are still restricting some sites up till now.

So, UBA have lifted the limitation on their naira debit card from $100 to $1000 per month but for a limited time which is 31st of August 2017.

Meanwhile, it's still unclear why they decide to make it within a short period of time but let's hope they extend it further.
