Dear Tony/Aweriale,

Pls how do I receive money  from Neighbouring Countries (East & West Africa). I have a product I plan to sell across  these countries but blank with payment system to use.

This product sales around $19-20. Paypal and bank wire may not be a good option considering the folks targeted and the small amount. I am thinking of anything to do with depositing the money in banks to receive it in Nigeria.

Please help out. How do you manage this with your product, I mean when payment cuts across Nigeria.

Actually this is quite a challenge for us now because most of the ones we have tried have flopped. That is the main reason why we are not selling our stuff outside Nigeria at this time.

But I have heard of 2checkout and some people say it works for Nigeria. 2checkout can be used to accept credit card payments. You can do some research on Google, search for using 2checkout in Nigeria and see what you can find.

Also, e-currencies like Liberty reserve, Alertpay, Moneybookers etc can be used though you cannot accept credit cards with those.

To accept Paypal I think you have to obtain a Paypal merchant account (which cannot be done safely from Nigeria). There is a Nigerian company fastecash.com that claims to help you accept Paypal and credit card payments but the last time we tried their service we were less than impressed with their interswitch processing system. You can visit their website and call them to find out exactly what they can offer in terms of payment processing. Their website is fastecash.com or info-mart.com

Also if you can get an account with a bank that has branches in many African countries you might be able to accept bank deposits.

Sincerely we don't have enough experience in this area to give you more definite answers so you will need to do some research by yourself and please let us know if you are able to find one that works well.
Leave it for God, don't worry yourself. Leave it for God, don't cry no more.

I'm happy you replied me Tony considering your busy schedule. Well, this has been my greatest challenge in online business with respect to Nigeria and Africa.
Nevertheless, I am making research cum enquiry with our local banks here. So far, GTbank failed my test in this regard but Firstbank claimed it has the facility (I mean depositing the cash in bank for receiver to withdraw in their local currency) but I'v done a mail or two to firstbank but it hardly replies to mails.

All the same, I challenge fellow forum members who have been in blogosphere to assist in this regard. If possible we can make suggestion/plea to GTbank to intervene in this case.
Regards
Emenyke

@Emeneyke Indeed, this is one of the biggest challenges online guys are having here in Nigeria.

But nevertheless as Tony rightly said, 2CO works here in Nigeria I am sure of that the only problem I had with them is that the policy of the product owner I was trying to integrate with their merchant processor did not match with theirs.

3. You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login - paypal or credit card as a payment alternative for merchants

Hope these helps!

Dear Winnet,

I read your response above to Emenyke's enquiry. What is your experience so far with 2CO? Good? reliable? You mentioned an issue you had with using their services? was it resolved?

@Emmenyke, pls update us with your experience too. Did u go ahead with their services?

i have an account with naira.com. You have to verify yourself with the usual photo and proof of address upload before you can fund your account. These I have not done yet.
Vpaybuy is a service rendered by Henry Omeonogor, a Nigerian Expert on internet payment solution and he is very good at what he does. he charges annually for this service (details on his website vpaybuy.com). You can hook up with him on facebook.
I have not used plimus yet.
