See The Current UBA Dollar Exchange Rate On Its Naira MasterCard Foreign Transactions

One of the things that Nigerian banks will not ordinary want to tell their customers is the dollar exchange rate on their Naira MasterCard when used for foreign transactions and most times you just have to figure it out yourself by testing it out or using the MasterCard to shop on online sites, after which you can do the calculation.

Maybe the reason for keeping some of the rates secret is because instead of commercial banks in the country to set the dollar exchange rate on their Naira cards to CBN approved standard inter-bank exchange rate, some of the banks will even end up charging you even higher than what is obtainable in the black-market currency exchange wing.


And I decided to use my UBA Naira MasterCard to shop on foreign sites and also to know what the current dollar exchange rate is on UBA MasterCard.
