The Payday app allows you to make payments from your Nigerian account through its virtual card.

I know you're interested in using Payday for your payment, kindly follow these detailed steps:

1. Download the app here.

  • Create an account (i.e. if you do not have an account yet).

  • Input your personal details; your name, your email, your password, and your referral code (this is optional), and click on "Continue"
