ZENITH PLANS NIGERIA'S FIRST ONLINE SHOPPING CARD FOR THE USA
Zenith Bank Plc in partnership with MasterCard International and PUSA Systems Nigeria Limited has concluded arrangement for the introduction of an on-line shopping card that will allow Nigerians buy products from on-line stores in the United States of America.
Known as the Passport USA Online Shopping Card, the card will allow holders to shop on-line for any product or service from the comfort of their computers and have them delivered directly to their doorsteps without stress.
The pre-paid card opens the door for holders to over 3 million online merchants based in the USA, removing the bottleneck and challenges associated with buying products from the US under other schemes. To protect cardholders, all transactions through the USA Online Shopping Card will be authenticated by MasterCard while each card is tied to a delivery address.
Passport USA is a U.S. based company with other regional partners across the African continent which specializes in global e-commerce. It is registered in Nigeria as PUSA Systems Nigeria Limited
To benefit, customers will be required to open a card account with Zenith Bank after which they would be issued with the Passport USA Shopping Card, with which they then log on to any on-line store of their choice and begin shopping.
The bank already has a rich offering of e-payment products including Internet banking, telephone banking, mobile banking, eazycard (debit or ATM card), deposit notification, automated direct payment system, ValuCard and MasterCard, among many others.
