All these local banks and their strange cards that are can fail at any time, while doing cross-border transactions, in a foreign country.

A few years back, GTB's MasterCard issued in Nigeria, was not accepted in Ghana, for their local transactions. Yet they were telling everyone that it was accepted internationally. sad

It took a long while before they could fix the glitches. In the meantime, many of their clients were stranded and embarrassed abroad, due to the poor performance of the card.

UBA too, did the same thing with their cards. Using their cards abroad, was guaranteed to launch the user into international embarrassment. undecided

Now, First Bank has launched a card that is likely to do the same. Many business owners have learnt the hard way, not to rely on locally issued cards for international transactions, no matter how colourful their adverts may be.
