The evolution of payments in Nigeria is becoming more significant. The use of cards (ATM cards) are more and more becoming popular thanks to the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) vision 2020 that is promoting the cashless society. Although, people still say it is cashless society, I still see more Nigerians using there cards on to withdraw cash from the ATM.
What most of the Nigerians using their cards on ATM don't really know is that it is actually more beneficial to them to use the card on POS and Online to make the purchase. the question now is "how is this beneficial to individuals"?
The cards that carry more benefits are the Prepaid Cards. They work exactly the way Debit cards and Credit cards work, they are more safe to use both online and on POS. In fact, the prepaid cards gives you more peace of mind than your debit card because they are not linked to your current account or saving account so only money available for you to spend are the money you load on it.
