Wondering how I got my UBA Africard within 1 day? Well, I will walk you through the process, all i need from my users are a few mins of their time..
Sharing my own part of the story was fun, i walked into the nearby UBA branch office and told the lady at the Customer Care desk that I need the UBA Africard.
As expected She requested of my ID card and later directed me to a guy, and asked some few questions which i will be sharing here..
Simple guide to Open UBA AfriCard in Nigeria
- Do you have a VALID driver?s license.
- He also asked me if I have N1000 with me and I told him I have it.
- Also asked if I have Passport Photograph , Of course i was with one, cause i came prepared..
He then gave me two forms to fill, in which I filled in my Personal details and the details of my ID (My driver?s license). Inside the form, you will see an option asking you if want a Non-personalized or a personalized one.
The personalized one comes with your name embossed on the card while the generic one doesn?t. I personally went for the the non personalized one because I didn?t want to wait for extra days before I get my card.
I returned the form to him and waited for the processing. After processing it, he gave me a teller, told me to fill it and took it to the cashier, together with my 1000naira notes. After depositing the 1000naira, I went back to the Customer care rep and the guy told me to wait a little more so I can get my card.
After some few minutes, the Visa prepaid card was issued to me. I changed the pin there in the bank ATM . I was even surprised they left N400 in the card. That simply means N600 was deducted to process the card as at the time I received mine.
I can now run more campaigns on Facebook, Google and even shop online at www.Aliexpress.com. I have also successfully used the card at Hostgator.com and many other site
