For Uba Afri Card Users Only by Youngzedd(m): 11:37am On May 13, 2013
Good day NL members and UBA AfriCard user,
I will like us to share our experience with UBA Afri Card, more especially amount charged per currency and the bank charges. I notice there are additional charges after making payment, but I can't figure out how they calculate the charges. I also went to the bank but they weren't able to proof to me how they charge due to the best reasons known to them.
So if you know exactly how they charge per transaction please kindly let us know and also today's exchange rate.

I must confess UBA Africard charges is much, let ideas flow.........



Update:

FROM UBA


There is a N50 charge for withdrawals through UBA ATMs,N100 through other ATMs.

N1000 or the equivalent (in the country's currency) is charged for withdrawals outside Nigeria.
For PoS and Web transactions, 2.75 % of the value of transaction will be charged.

UBA Africard can be funded with a minimum of N500 and a maximum of N750,000.

You must be at least 18 years old to apply for the prepaid card. You would be required to provide proof of identity, address and a valid telephone number/ or e-mail address.

Yup and nothing should be FREE. I later found the charges, upon they charge 2.75%, they will still charge 163 per dollar when others are charging 159. Not only that, when depositing into the account they will also charge 100 Naira.

Now a dollar is 162 that means they will charge 169 or 170.

Just managing them for now.

The charges are much.

They knocked me out from login to online portal, they said I should contact the bank which I did. I requested for pin reset since last month up till now no signal from them.

They also did it to a friend of mine.

Their staffs knows nothing about AfriCard. Just a question they can't give a reasonable reply.

Meanwhile, as u said u still av d web pin, u need to change it & try login with the credentials & see if u av acct online.
The method I applied was I logged in with the default web pin & I changed it immediately, I input my profile then I proceed to activate verify by visa which I put anoda password & d new password is meant for payment above 20k I guess cos whenever I pay a sum of 30k+ d site request for d vbv password. Right now I don't know d stage u are

Broda, thanks once again......... mine is that i have not changed the default pin but i have already created the account and done the verified by visa stuff. whenever i want to purchase an item, i always have to transfer money by bank wire which is almost taking my profit.
maybe i have to change my web pin to see if it will work.............. CAN I USE THE SAME PIN 4 THE WEB AND ATM?
THANKS.
Re: For Uba Afri Card Users Only by kentochdis(m): 7:46pm On Jun 17, 2013
Point 1 - I have a personalized UBA Africard (My Name is inscribed in it)
Point 2 - After all the verification and changing of pin and password I was able to use the card for ATM withdrawals from UBA ATM and other banks ATM. I have been using it successfully to make purchases on Aliexpress.
Point 3 - You are charged N100 each time deposit is made into your account.
Point 4 - I made 4 different purchases at different time last month from aliexpress and from my calculations, they were making a one made a deduction each time I made a transaction which amounted to N162.43 conversion rate (please note that it included their charges).
Point 5 - From the time i have owned the Africard, I have not received or seen any extra charges.

For services,
I think, their staff are not too familiar with the card, but they made a lot of provision in terms of write ups to guild and help you with activating and using the card. The problem I think is that most of us don't take time to go through their instruction one step at a time. Cheers.

U need to change d default web pin before making payment with it
U can't use web pin for atm withdrawals, there is a pin for atm which comes with the card, if can't remember it seek for atm pin reset.

They haven't reset the pin. I will go there by his grace this Friday, although I do everything with the card but logining to the online portal is hard.

To d best of my knowledge, the exchange rate for making use of aliexpress escrow service is different frm our local exchange rate I guess, cos I have been charged for dis 167.+ ever since I started paying on aliexpress with the card.
Re: For Uba Afri Card Users Only by Nobody: 2:54am On Jun 18, 2013
How does one get a new web pin to replace the old one. Cos when I applied for mine, I wasn't told that it had a web pin, just the ATM pin which was change.

Go to the branch that issued the card to you and request for the reset of web i-pin. You will be asked to write a letter (short letter pls ) then submit it to them.
That is all.

Yeah, that was there initial charge with the 2.75% but What they charged me was 167+ without the transaction charge.

I believe it's because of the increase in USD last week.

Still waiting for it to fall a bit b4 I carry another transaction.
