How to Get UBA Africard for your Importation Business

If you need a credit card that is widely accepted on Aliexpress and other similar sites, then you shoud think of acquiring the UBA Africard. The UBA Africard is actually a debit card, that is, you can only spend what you have on it. I just decided to call it a credit since thats what people want to hear when it comes to online payment. Its just the general conception that we use credit card to make payment online.

The card is very easy to acquire, you only need to provide some minor documents and follow some steps to get one. you don’t have to have an account with the bank before applying for the card

Procedure and Requirement to Acquire you UBA Africard
Applying for the card is very easy, simple walk into any branch of UBA around you and tell the customer service that you want to apply for UBA Africard. Now, before going there, these are the things you need to put in place:
1. A valid means of Identification (e.g National ID Card, Driving licence, International Passport etc)
2. Some Amount of Cash. N2,000 should be ok
3. A passport photograph to attach to your Know your Customer (KYC) form

The card comes in two variances; Personalized and Unpersonalized. The personalized one means your name would be encrypted on it and it takes a maximum of one week to be processed, while the unpersonalized one as the name suggests means your name won’t be on it and you will get it immediately.

That is it! you have a debit card to start your importation business. what are you waiting for? Head over to UBA to get yours.

Since I was a 22-year-old undergraduate in University, I've run a home-based business importing products from China and generating millions of Naira on a yearly basis. Since then, I've made China and its culture not only a key part of my business but also of my personal life.


  1. I tried to apply for UBA AFRICARD in BAYELSE state and I was told it’s not available for now!, Any idea on how to go about this?

  2. That’s quite unbelievable because I have never seen anybody with giving me such report. Did you asked them when its going to be available? If you are not getting a good response from that particular branch, pls go to another branch of the Bank around you (I’m quite sure you will have other branches around) and request for the card. Try this and let me know how it goes

  3. How do i fund it to start my importation biz?

  4. i’d really like to know if I can also buy goods from America online stores and ship them to nigeria? like ebay n d rest….

    • An article has already been published on the subject matter. Please kindly refer to it. Thanks

  5. Can I use it to pay my Chinese suppliers because they use alipay account most
