Frequently Asked Questions on C-PROTECT Anti- Glass break Solution and Answers

What is C-Protect?
C-Protect is Concept Nova’s unique solution to prevent accidents and incidents that may result from glass break or shattering. It is made up of a tough transparent adhesive film and an alarm system.

Is C-Protect’s film bulletproof?
No, not this version.

Where can I get C-Protect?
C-Protect can be gotten from our online shop, our office or from any of our distributors nationwide.

Is C-Protect self-installable?
Yes, with simple Do-It-Yourself (DIY) tools and the manual, you or a tint installer can install C-Protect film on your car.

Does my windscreen need C-Protect?
Gratefully, no!  Windscreens are made to be tamper-proof and thus, do not need C-Protect.  

Is C-Protect for cars alone?
Of course not! C-Protect film can be used on any glass. As a matter of fact, we recommend C-Protect film to be used on accident-prone glasses like windows, doors and partitions.

How long do I need to leave C-Protect to cure?
Curing time for C-Protect film is at least 3 weeks. The longer the time the more adhesive it is to the glass and the more difficult it is to break or shatter.

The Adsense Privacy Policy Generator I Use and How To Use it (Videos)

make blog privacy policy for adsense


Google Adsense requires that all publishers have a privacy policy page on their blogs that informs visitors specifically about the use of cookies and log files to customize their advertising experience. If you apply for Google Adsense without having this page on your blog, your application will not be approved.

Drafting a page that contains all the required content for Adsense Privacy policy ain't easy but by making use of an online blog privacy policy generator, you can easily generate your own Privacy Policy that fills all of the requirements of Google Adsense.

I've uploaded a video to my YouTube channel that explains how to generate privacy policy page's content.




There is another video that explains how to create privacy policy page in blogger and how to add a tab to the Blogger navigation bar which links to the privacy policy page.



I hope these helps.

How To Get Payoneer MasterCard in Nigeria via DHL

How To Get Payoneer MasterCard in Nigeria via DHL

This is a guest post compiled by +Ubah Chetachukwu M.D  for OgbongeBlog

In February this year, I stumbled on a post on Ogbongeblog which explains how to open Payoneer account in Nigeria.

Surprisingly, I later got to know that I could withdraw my RevenueHits monthly earnings through Payoneer. (I've been searching for a domiciliary account to withdraw it). Nice.

Well, I signed up for Payoneer Mastercard at payoneer.com and I was approved almost immediately:

“Congratulations - your Payoneer account application has been approved!
Your Payoneer Prepaid Debit MasterCard® card has been shipped to you by: Regular mail
Your card is estimated to arrive between 08 Mar 2016 and 15 Mar 2016”

Unfortunately my hopes were almost dashed when after almost 4 months, the Payoneer mastercard didn't get to me. I then decided to go for the expedited shipping option. This option simply allows you to receive the Payoneer Mastercard in Nigeria via DHL.

I sent a mail to Payoneer email address (customersupport@payoneer.com) to request for the expedition option. I also sent the following details to them  :

Street Address (limit to 60 characters):
City/State:
Country:
Zip Code:
Phone number:

And they replied :

“We are pleased to inform you that your Payoneer Prepaid MasterCard® card was shipped via DHL.
Your card is estimated to arrive between 17 Jun 2016 and 22 Jun 2016.”

NB: I discovered I sent the wrong zip code/ postcode and I quickly alerted payoneer, but I was told that it doesn't matter as long as I gave them my correct address.

An hour later DHL sent me an email:

“CHETACHUKWU UBAH, Payoneer has sent you a shipment via DHL Express. Details and a link to track the shipment are below. If you have any questions contact Payoneer Customer Service at: http://www.payoneer.com/contactUS.aspx Thank you.”



The card was shipped on Tuesday, the 13th of June and it arrived on Thursday, with the tracking code given to me I knew every location of my card, even when it was collected at the facility by the DHL delivery man and delivered at my doorstep.

How Much Does Payoneer Charge for Sending The Card To Nigeria via DHL?


$50 dollars was deducted from my account for this.

$24 dollars was also deducted from me at the ATM too. I guess it's for the annual maintenance fee.

That's all.

How did you receive your Payoneer mastercard in Nigeria? DHl or Normal delivery?

How I Fund My GT Bank Dollar MasterCard

How I Fund My GT Bank Dollar MasterCard

Earlier, I shared info on how you can get dollar MasterCard at GTBank Nigeria. In this post, I want to quickly share with you, how to fund the Guaranty Trust Bank Dollar Card. Funding the card is quite easy. I fund mine via the GTBank Internet Banking or by making use of the GTBank mobile app.

How?


  • Sign in to your GT Bank Internet banking dashboard
  • Click on "Account Transfers"
  • Click on "Own Account Transfer"
  • Select your GTBank dorm account from the "From" drop-down
  • Select your dollar card account number from the "To" drop down
  • Enter the amount you want to transfer
  • Click "Submit"

Press the white button on your token device and type the transaction code generated in the space provided to approve the transfer.

That's all.

GTBank Dollar MasterCard : Charges, Limits and How To Get it in Nigeria

 GTBank Dollar MasterCard : Charges, Limits and How To Get it in Nigeria

The GTBank Dollar MasterCard is what I now use to make online payments in Nigeria on websites that bill me in US dollars. Hence, no need for converting Naira to dollar when making making payments online at those sites. So far, I've successfully used it to pay for Google & Facebook ads, web hosting, domain registration, Google apps for work, MadMimi subscription etc

Using the GTBank Naira MasterCard makes no sense to me anymore because of the current Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) monetary policy which allows the Naira to float against the US dollar at the inter-bank market, rather than holding on to a fixed peg. What this simply means is that your bank can charge you N330 per US$ today and N410 per US$ the next day. So, to avoid stories that touch the heart, I decided to go for the Dollar MasterCard and also considering the fact that I earn online in US dollars, I didn't have to think twice.

One thing I so much like about the card is that it is NOT linked directly to my GTBank domiciliary account. A separate account was created for the card. I have to move funds to the card by myself from my dorm account to the card's account whenever I need dollars for my online payments. Cool, isn't it?

My GT bank dollar debit card is customized with my name. The card number & expiry date appear at the front of the card while the 3 digit Card Validation Value (CVV2) is printed on the reverse side of the card, beside the signature panel. Validity of the dollar card is 2 years.

gtbank Nigeria dollar mastercard

How Can I Get Dollar MasterCard by GTBank in Nigeria?


Getting the Dollar MasterCard by GTBank is quite easy if you already have a dollar (dom) account with GTBank. You only have to go to the nearest branch to fill the GTBank Dollar Debit MasterCard application form and ensure you have a minimum balance of $50 in your GTBank dom account. You can as well request for the application form to be sent to you via email, fill and scan back to your GTBank account manager.

For non-account holders, you will be required to open a GT bank dollar domiciliary account with the following documents:
  • Completed (USD) Domiciliary account form, 
  • 2 (Two) Referees, 
  • 1 (one) recent passport photograph,
  • a recent Utility Bill,
  • a copy of your Driver's License or International Passport and
  • minimum opening balance of $50.
My dollar card was ready for pick up at GTBank Makurdi branch after one week I submitted my application. Once it is ready for pick up, you will receive an SMS or probably a call from the bank. You MUST ensure you activate the card before changing the default PIN.


How To Activate GT Bank Dollar MasterCard?


Once you get the card, do not change your PIN immediately. You will have to activate it by calling GTCONNECT after which you can proceed to change the PIN. You can ask the customer care rep to direct you to where you can call card services for the activation of your card instead of using your personal phone. On the GTBank phone, you will see the number to dial for you to be able to talk to a rep that will activate your card.

The GTBank card services rep will ask for your bank account number, date of birth, number of accounts on your GTBank profile, name of the last person that paid into your account and amount, the most recent payment you made on your account and other questions just to confirm that the account truly belongs to you.

The rep will then tell you to wait for 10 or 15 minutes before changing the PIN.  Once you successfully change the PIN of the GTBank Dollar MasterCard, you can start using it to pay online from Nigeria and anywhere in the world.

GTBank Dollar MasterCard Charges and Transaction Limits


Transaction Limits

==> ATM Withdrawal: $1000 (or equivalent in the local currency of any transaction)
==> POS: No Limit
==> Web (Online): No Limit

Charges

  • Card Issuance Fee: $20
  • Annual Fee: $18
  • ATM Withdrawals: $3.50 per withdrawal
  • POS & Online transactions: Free
  • POS cash advance: $6.25 + 0.1% of transaction amount


NB: The charges are printed on the introduction letter enclosed in the white envelope which also contains your default pin and dollar card.

That's all.

If you know other dollar cards issued by banks in Nigeria that are better than this or have questions to ask, feel free to use the comment form.
