Paying for wholesale orders on AliExpress with Bitmama virtual cards

Although most people can conveniently get through steps 1 to 4, step 5 is the point where business owners find themselves stuck. This is largely due to the restriction placed on FX payments on bank Naira cards, coupled with the fact that bulk orders on AliExpress usually cost a lot (we’re talking thousands of dollars).

This sum cannot be processed using Nigerian naira cards and many other countries have Forex limits on their domestic cards too. 

Bitmama virtual cards break those limits, allowing business owners to fund and spend up to $20,000 on cross-border payments. Here’s how to set up and pay for AliExpress wholesale orders using the Bitmama virtual card: 

Step 1: Download the Bitmama app on Google Play Store or get it on Apple Store, register and log into your account, then click on ”Cards” and navigate to the Cards page, a pop-up box will display showing that you need to verify your account to level (3) three to create virtual cards.

Step 2: Navigate to the verification page in your ”Account” section. Click on the verification button to submit the necessary documents for your verification up to level 3.
