I've been shopping on Aliexpress since 2016 all with my Gtbank debit card but lately I tried to make payment with the card but got error message. Has anyone experienced that?

So I guess I was right after all. I tried a 2,800 naira purchase on Ecobank and was turned down. I've made purchases nearing 10k on the card in the past four days or thereabout.

So I guess it's safe to say that their cap is around that kain 10,000 naira or 25 USD. Abbysmal, for lack of suitable words.

Sadly I squandered that small cap trialing Ecobank card on inconsequential items. Now that I need to get the important stuffs, I'm outta juice.

Make Monday come make I obtain my Zenith card.

Did you email their customer care to ascertain how much the USD cap limit is?
$25 is too poor. WTF is wrong? Yet our polithiefcians steal millions of dollars everyday, when it comes to legit business the dollars are suddenly scarce

Exobank isn't a very serious bank. Mailing the custocare does not guarantee that I'll get response in record time. I don't wanna waste my time with those guys.

And worse still, Ecobank charged 400 naira to the dollar. I just calculated it now using the amount I was debited.

I guess Zenith's 200 USD cap at 390 naira to the dollar is the way to go.

All these banks with sluggish customer care are not really one to do business with.

Last month which was july that i used ecobank, i was able to use up to about $500, and they renew their limit either monthly or after 30 days like other banks... $25 is really bad, i dont think it should be that bad... Will update if there's any new info...

I saw a store on AliExpress with prices so cheap that I'm scared to buy grin grin Like they have Redmi airdots for about $3, and the store was opened on July 23rd and no reviews yet. Do you guys think it's wise to buy anything from there?

See, the guy na fake. AE don't really vet sellers like it's done on eBay, Amazon etc. Heck, the Chinese government don't even have punitive laws to discourage such. To the Chinese, it's seen as a thing of pride to outsmart others, mostly in cunning ways.

So the red flags for that guy is that the store was recently opened, probably in preparation for Black Friday and gadget Monday sales. The second red flag is that the items are dirt cheap, those items will most likely be fake.

So here is what happens. You're not the only person that will be attracted by the "juicy offers", at least a million other shoppers likely are. So if each one of you buys 10 dollars worth of item from his store, that makes 10 million dollars. He will ship the item of course, but it'll be fake. The purchase protection is what he is banking on. Not many AE shoppers know about BP and so it always run out on their profile without they knowing it. Also not everyone has the luxury of watching the last few minutes of BP expiry with the hope of filing for dispute the moment it runs out. Not many buyers know that you can file dispute for fake items.

These are the categories of people that this seller plan to capitalize on. If out of a million buyers, 500 thousand failed to file dispute as at when due and funds have already been released to the seller.

Four years ago in preparation for Black Friday on AE, I had spotted this store with dirt cheap prices and I bought a Bose Sound link Mini I had planned to acquire that year.

Come and see how disappointed I was when was delivered was total fake and imitation. I had to make a video evidence back to AE to refund my dues. After Black Friday, I wanted to write reviews to expose the seller, alas the store no longer exists - It's like the store was in existence for just like one month.

I was later to buy the certified Soundlink Mini from another reputable seller.

There's been strong restrictions on international transactions through card payments lately...since early last week... It was really difficult paying for an item on ebay last week..tried different cards and payment platforms but no way...
Heard twas due to the increasing dollar rates...'and then too much money leaving the country at the time'...wouldnt know much about CBN policies anyway
Had to beg my cousin to help me pay in dollars...

Your best bet now is to use an agent...
