When we buy things online, we usually need a valid MasterCard, Visa Card, or Credit card to make the payment.
In Ghana, Fintech has made it easier for people to apply for a Visa card from legal banks regulated by the Bank of Ghana.
You can also apply for a Visa prepaid card from banks like First Atlantic Bank, United Bank For Africa, Access Bank Plc, Ecobank Ghana, etc. to use for online transactions.
Sometimes, when trying to buy things from certain places, Ghanaian Visa cards may not be accepted, so we might need a foreign MasterCard to make those purchases from Ghana.
That’s where Payoneer comes in. Payoneer is a fintech solution that allows many digital marketers to conduct foreign transactions. You can apply for a MasterCard with a Payoneer account and have it delivered to you in Ghana. This card can be used for online purchases and receiving funds.
In my latest article, I will show you how to open a Payoneer account in Ghana in 2023.
