Everyday a Nigerian child wakes up, he/she is faced with uncountable life-threatening challenges that questions his existence and survival on earth. Yesterday comes the shocker news for all Nigerian small business entrepreneurs who have been relying on GTBank Mastercard for their international monetary transactions, as the last-man-standing bank rolled out a complete ban of all international transactions on their Naira mastercard, including USD ($) payments, which directly means that Nigerians can no longer send money using paypal EVEN if it is $1!), as GTB, which happens to be the only Nigerian bank that allowed Nigerians to spend a maximum of $100 on POS, foreign ATMS and websites, using their GTB Naira Mastercard.

This is devastating news. I now have to get a dollar card. Was hoping to make a few purchases next week. Buhari has finished the economy.

This News is Authentic! My close friend and colleague was affected yesterday. He was trying to pay a Merchant online with Paypal and was rejected severally.

I offered to give guides on how he could manoeuvre because i have once had issues with my account too but to no avail until he called me this morning to break the sad news.

He said CBN directed the Banks to stop due to the way "G Boys" were using Paypal for transactions. I was shocked ehn!

Now people running Online Jobs that involve transacting with Paypal will have to start sourcing for Credit Cards. What is life in Nigeria again!? angry

This is just taking Nigeria back to the 90s. If this action was taken because of G'boys like someone mentioned, then the CBN governor and his entire team needs to be shot in the head. Who cuts off the head because of headache? Cost of doing business and providing services will now quadriple.

Which way Nigeria?

Access bank too isn't working. All the banks have banned all foreign transactions on their naira card. They said you should open a dom account and then request for a dollar card if you want to make foreign payments....and now the question is how do you fund the dom account, of course using black market rate of $1 = NGN526

Seriously, APC, Buhari, Emiefele, CBN have failed Nigerians! The hardship is going to get tougher for Nigerians.

Imagine Nigerian youths hustling on their own to survive by doing small small businesses online can't do that again....they can't renew their domain names or hosting plans....they can't pay for foreign goods and services unless they patronize black market.

I think the real time for Nigerian youths to occupy the streets has come cry cry angry angry

This deserves to be on the front page to let CBN and Osinbajo know that their harsh economy policies are killing more small businesses than the number of businesses or jobs they wish to create!

Many Nigerian youths work online...buying services on foreign websites and re-selling on other websites and making some profit to keep them going....now what does the government want them to do now Go stealing

Ambode is pursuing okadas even in Lagos streets, said he was going to ban Danfo buses....CBN is busy rolling out harsh financial policies, and EFCC keep claiming that they are recovering billions of $$$ without any positive effect on the economy as $1 goes for NGN520, what a history!!!

At what rate I mean at what rate are you selling your $$$ to naira? Of course there are options of buying dollar from the black market....which makes things so expensive and difficult for the ordinary Nigerian youths.

So, tell us your rate

I believe it is limited to PayPal and Facebook as someone used his Gtbank for an International transaction few hours ago, I also used mine yesterday.

I'm just seeing this thread now, but earlier today, a friend told me UBA stopped too, here is the response I got, when I made enquiry from UBA account on Twitter.
I believe Gtbank and Access Bank still work fine.
