Zenith Bank Suspends International Transactions On Naira Cards

Users of Zenith Bank Naira cards will no longer be able to use their cards for international transactions. i.e if you own a Zenith Bank Naira card, you will no longer be able to use it to make payments on websites that accept payments in US dollars and other foreign currencies.

Below is the notice sent out to Zenith Naira cards users :

zenith bank nigeria naira card suspension memo

For international transactions, Zenith bank account holders are encouraged to pick up dollar denominated card from a nearby branch of Zenith bank.

This is a bad news for those using Zenith Naira cards to purchase domain name, pay for Facebook/google ads, shop online at Amazon, Aliexpress etc

Do you know other banks in Nigeria that have taken this step?

  1. i guess UBA and Diamond has taken this step too... i couldn't pay with my card this morning

    1. Are you using the UBA Africard or another UBA debit card?

  2. i think UBA too, cudnt pay.

  3. Real bad news, is it because of the economics crunch or what? I tried making payment with UBA to a local bank and it didn't even go through.

  4. Is like most Nigerian banks are confused...Just making different policies to rescue themselves from the economic mess without considering it impacts on customers.

  5. I won't be surprised when GTBank decide to do the same; the rate at which they send messages to inform dorm. account holders about the Dollar Mastercard is something to get worried about now

  6. I also received the mail from fidelity bank. Its really a bad news to us

  7. Diamond has taken this measure for the past three weeks.
