5 Times When Online Payments Can Give You Instant Headache

Chipper Cash | Inside Life
September 8, 2021

There’s nothing as annoying as slow network, errors or getting your card rejected when you need to make an important payment online.

If you’re in Nigeria, one of these 5 situations must have given you headache at some point.

1. Online shopping

After finally summoning courage to move all those items you’ve saved since 2019 to cart, paying will be another wahala. On top your own money you want to spend oh. This life.

2. Buying airtime when stranded

God help you if your car breaks down in the middle of nowhere and Tunji, your mechanic, is not on WhatsApp.

3. Paying bills

If it’s your village people working through your bank to make EKEDC embarrass you, pray against it.

4. Booking flights

Oh you think you can just up and go? Lemao. Wait till your bank falls your hand with network failure minutes before booking elapses.

5. Subscribing to Netflix

Something that you’re paying for because of Money Heist and King Of Boys, that’s how you’ll see that your card is not accepted for international payments.

Having a virtual card like that of Chippercash can help prevent all this headache.

The Chipper Card is a pre-funded and reloadable virtual card that can be used for online payments globally. Here’s what makes it cool:

  • It is absolutely free to acquire.
  • For a limited time, you can automatically earn 5% cash back on all purchases.
  • You can use it for online purchases anywhere Visa cards are accepted.
  • Limit spending by only using the amount uploaded to your card.
  • Easily book flights or buy anything online.

The Merchants accepted at the moment are Ali Express, Amazon, Facebook, Bolt, Apple iTunes, Spotify, Google Playstore, BoomPlay, Youtube Video & Music, and Netflix.
