I am happy to commend the United Bank for Africa (UBA) for creating UBA AfriCash. We used it today from a customer in Sierra Leone who wanted to pay for Tekedia Mini-MBA. This is coming after all the frustrations when the fintechs could make this happen. Yes, the old banking institution which was supposed to be disrupted has the right product. We have lost many customers from Gabon, Tanzania, etc due to intra-African payment issues. Now, we think with UBA AfriCash, that friction has been fixed.
AfriCash is like a Western Union within Africa, connecting about 20 UBA operating countries. I am very impressed – and with this, our message is simple: if you live in any country where UBA operates, we can easily serve you. In some countries, we have partners; they remain our preference for payment.
If you live in any of the noted countries, simply email my Admin and the team will give you details to put when wiring the money. You will make the transfer in US dollars (you use your local currency and buy USD in your country), and our team will collect it in UBA Nigeria.
(See the fee amount, on image, to know how much USD you need to go to UBA with.)
