In accordance with a direction issued from the Central Bank of Nigeria, you are not allowed to spend more than $100 per month using the Visa card. In case you want (or need) to spend more on your online purchases that are executed through PayPal, you have only one way out. This way out is to open a dollar card, no matter whether it’s MasterCard or Visa.
