Virtual payments are payments that are made online or over the telephone without exchanging cash or paying by check. These payments are made securely using the generated numbers. When payments are made virtually, hackers who steal the generated numbers will not be able to use them. The numbers will not work after they have been used by you to make the payment, and they won’t work to allow access to your accounts or to be traced back to your company. In this article, I will highlight some virtual cards available in Nigeria.

For travellers who don’t want a physical card to be seen when travelling, this digital wallet is 100% risk-free. All you need to provide is your email address at checkout, and your billing information will remain private as well. However, this comes with a price, as your card comes with a monthly $1 fee, a $0.75 fee on every foreign transaction, and a 2% fee to load it from an external account.
