Business / Re: CBN To Unify Exchange Rates, Pegs Naira At 379/$ by routik(m): 1:06pm On Aug 10, 2020
It will make sense if they can achieve this. Enough of the inconsistency.

Experts have continued to clamour for a single exchange rate in the country.

Business / Re: GT Bank Naira Master Card No Longer Works On International Trade Websites by routik(m): 12:16pm On Aug 05, 2020
which of the normal MasterCard; The Naira MasterCard or the Dollar MasterCard?

udwise123:
I don't use or have a virtual dollar card .
Just the normal MasterCard

Okay. I am just hearing that now. What Customer Care told me when I inquired from them is that for now they have restricted there cards on International Trade Websites.

Ayemileto:



Actually, there's a $100 per day limit for dollar transactions on a Naira MasterCard.

It's CBN policy.


This means that those that already have the virtual dollar don't have issues. Applying for new cards is currently not available. So enjoy.
This was my conversation with them.
Note: I brought btc worth $1300 with my Alat MasterCard yesterday.

udwise123:
No monthly limit.
But I will chat them up now on Twitter to confirm.
I just bought BTC worth $1300 @388.66 for someone using my Alat card.

I contacted them after I read your comment and the attached screen shot is our conversation. All these is only pointing out that there is a new banking policy in place. Access Bank told me that their Naira Master/Visa Card is working but their new limit is now $1000 per month instead of $3000 and their exchange rate is $345 which is high comparing it to GT Bank & Zenith Bank exchange rate. Maybe before the end of this month, Nigerians will begin to understand & feel what is happening as regards to making payments on international websites with our debit cards.

AT what rate per dollar do they charge?

udwise123:
Alat by wema MasterCard is working perfectly for all online transaction.

Do you mind telling us which Nigerian Bank card you used?

Dwightventures:
Now, I've got more interesting discovery. Frustrated by this ongoing problem, I decided to waste a little money to buy the cheapest thing I could find on Aliexpress. I paid $2.80 on the item, used the cards that have refused to work on ebay/paypal and voila! So this is not bank matter but specific merchants (namely paypal). I'm deeply frustrated and confused with this development
Business / Re: GT Bank Naira Master Card No Longer Works On International Trade Websites by routik(m): 2:32am On Aug 01, 2020
Very Sad Experience. If this is the case, then what is the solution as regards to making online payments at a reasonable exchange rate? How reliable are some of these third parties that advertises on helping one buy things on Amazon, Aliexpress, etc and at what rate do they charge?
Honestly, going to bureau de change to buy dollar at the rate of N475 per dollar is not even an option for me.
Besides shopping, one has a lot of web & training services to pay for on some international websites.
Which way Nigeria?! wink

Dwightventures:
I'm happy people have finally made this thread because it seemed I was the only Nigerian doing online purchases for months. As far back as May (I think), First Bank charged me 412 to the dollar and I cried out on nairaland, not much response. Everything said here I've experienced. I'm waiting for midnight to try to pay for something I bought a week ago and that an "unpaid item" complaint has been launched against me. The sad part is these useless banks don't tell you anything and in my case I re-registered my cards, my paypal account and all, not knowing where the error was coming from. First, I was told there was now a $500 cap (1st Bank) and this July, I revived my Zenith Bank account dormant for many years and I was told their limit was $1,000. They were the ones who restricted my purchases first and after all the stress, I finally got one if them to tell me the limit was now $200. This country is a joke and unrecognized in the do comity of proper countries. Only South Africa is considered a country in Africa in the global financial and commerce family
Business / Re: GT Bank Naira Master Card No Longer Works On International Trade Websites by routik(m): 4:57pm On Jul 31, 2020
I started experiencing this issue on Tuesday evening (28-July-2020)
Well, I still successfully used my GTB Naira Mastercard to pay a USA outfit @ N390/$1, as recently as on Monday - this week.


As of Today (being Friday 31-July-2020), Zenith Bank customer care informed me that the limit on their Naira Master/Visa Card per month is now $200 USD. But the customer care agent refused to tell me the exchange rate they're using as of today. She only said the exchange rate will be determined at the point of the transaction. This got me scared.
I think most of the banks now have $500 monthly limit on their cards.

I experienced same on my Zenithbank Card.


I already have a GT Bank Dollar Card, but the difference between N390 (online rate with Naira Master Card) and N475 (bureau de change rate) is much. especially when you order for things as frequent as possible.
Just get a dollar card and save your self the stress


Kindly shed more light on this if you're serious about it.
Several places to buy usd both online and bureau de change.

Business / GT Bank Naira Master Card No Longer Works On International Trade Websites by routik(m): 1:11pm On Jul 31, 2020
Hi Nairalander's,

I observed something recently while trying to use my GT Bank Naira Master Card on Aliexpress. Three days ago, I tried to help my younger sister make payment (of $156.79 USD) for her order on Aliexpress. But to my amazement, the payment wasn't successful. I contacted GT Bank customer service and was informed that their Naira Master Card has been restricted not to work on Trade websites like Aliexpress, Alibaba, Ebay, Amazon, etc.
I also reached out to a friend who knows about the recent development and he told me that some people were taking advantage of the GT Bank's online exchange rate of N390 to $1USD to enrich themselves.

Please anyone that has made payment on any International Trade Websites (within this week) using his or her Naira Master/Visa Card should kindly share his/her experience.

Below is also an email I received from Fluterwave on their Barter Virtual Dollar Card Service Interruption on the 29th on July 2020. This is a sign that there is going to be some international transactions restriction on all Nigerian Bank Cards.



Hey!

Earlier today, we experienced a service interruption that affected our virtual card service, and we'd like to apologize for any difficulties this has caused you. This issue affected card creation, withdrawal, spend, and the ability to fund.

This is what happened: An issuer went down without warning or notice, causing a sudden service disruption. Because we are not a bank, we work with and depend on issuers for certain card services.

In a few hours, we will complete the switch to a backup Issuer to restore the card services, and your card will be migrated to the new issuer. But don't panic, we will notify you as soon as we make the switch. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

Update 01:
All card services will be back 100% up and running.

Update 02:
Your card numbers will change and old cards will stop working completely.

Update 03:
If you use your card to pay for a subscription service, or if you have it linked to a recurring payment, you will have to unlink the card and link a new card.

Update 04:
There is always a very small possibility that the new card might not work where the old cards worked previously. This includes ad sites, web hosting sites, Paypal, some domain registration sites, and perhaps email marketing sites. Please contact us if you are affected by this issue.

Update 05:
There is also a slight possibility that you might experience inability to withdraw from the new card, incorrect card balances, inability to fund. Please contact us if you are affected by this issue.


We want to thank you once again for your patience; please know that we are all urgently working to get your cards back online and working as quickly as possible.

We’ll have updates for you soon.

Download and run it as a Live CD to get yourself familiar with it before going the next step to install it. You can also install on separate partition from your original Windows so that way you can boot to the Linux partition ....risky if you don't know how to do it. You might end up losing your Windows environment. Fret not, there are lots of tutorials online to guide you.

You can also install the Linux Mint on your virtual environment using Virtual Box or Parallels or any other virtual machine out there. All the best.

timoyesina:


Kindly share your solution


The only reliable solution I found was to get a a new Airtel SIM (dedicated for sms only), and bought their sms pack plan using *160# (N3,000 worth 2500 sms units), then download any bulk sms app on playstore that will be able to upload bulk sms numbers (.txt) and send sms using your mobile network. Even though I can't customize the sender name using this solution (because the receiver will definitely see the Airtel number I am sending the sms from), but I am 99.9% sure of delivery. The best part is that it's cheaper (N3000/2500 units =N1.2 per sms).

In summary, I no longer use bulk sms websites to send bulk sms. i use mobile network (Airtel) to send sms using bulk sms app that can upload .txt file and send sms using my mobile carriage network.

Webmasters / Please Recommend An Sms Website That Delivers To Active DND Airtel & Glo Lines by routik(m): 10:04pm On Feb 20, 2018
I use estore sms, but I noticed they don't deliver to Airtel & Glo DND enabled sim cards. I have an Airtel sim that is DND enabled. I don't receive any sms campaign from that sim (Airtel inclusive). but was surprised when I received an sms advert from one Micro finance bank yesterday on that line. I called estore customer care to complain about their corporate route not being able to deliver to active DND Airtel & Glo lines. But they customer care lady insisted that their corporate route deliver to all active DNS lines, which I can prove is not true.

Does anyone has similar experience? And is there any sms website out there that delivers to active DND lines irrespective of the network?

Romance / Is Reception After Church Wedding Mandatory? by routik(m): 11:38pm On Jul 17, 2017
Hi great people of Nairaland,

So i had this little argument with my friends, and they insisted that they'll rather do only traditional wedding than to do a church wedding without reception.

Hmm, I totally disagreed with them, telling them that the cost of reception after church wedding is the main reason why many bachelors are still single today. What is wrong in people coming for your church wedding, and after the church service you thank them & go your way with your newly wedded wife? Why has so many people allowed the society to continue to detect to them how to do things that pertain their personal life? Well, my friends said it's the worst thing you will do to any woman. Maybe the women in here will explain that to us men.

I have once witnessed a wedding during a mid-week church service. I mean we all came for the normal mid-week service and after the preaching, the pastor called the couple and said to us a wedding is about to happen now and that we are witnesses to the wedding. I couldn't believe it but it happened.

My view on this is; If you're not financially buoyant enough to do the usual "Nigeria kind of church wedding", you can still do a church wedding only without the reception part of it. I don't think it's mandatory. And who says it must be on a Saturday only? You & your prospective spouse can decide to wed on a Thursday evening, with a little get together for strictly family & friends.

I place more value on the woman I will get married to & our marriage more than the wedding itself. A man that doesn't have enough today to do an elaborate wedding can have more than enough tomorrow to do a lavish 10 years wedding anniversary.

Kindly share your views with us.
