Owning a local debit card is a struggle sometimes, especially when you want to shop online internationally.

And the Banking Halls? The crowds, the queues, the endless forms! Hell!


Enter… Barter Virtual Dollar Card.

That’s our solution. Barter virtual dollar cards allow you to make payments and shop online anywhere in the world where your local cards won’t allow you due to restrictions.  And that’s not the wildest part; you get to create Unlimited dollar cards at will.

Let’s do a small sprint.

We’re telling you it’ll only take about 5 minutes to get you started. Ready? GO!

Let’s create a card.

  1. Download Barter by Flutterwave from your device store & Sign up. 
  1. Complete the KYC and identity verification process
  2. ‘Add money’ to your Barter account either through your debit card, or bank transfer
  3. Click ‘Create new card’ 
  4. You could either create a Multifunctional card (i.e it can be used for all your online purchases/payments) or a custom card which can be used for specific purposes on specific platforms (e.g Netflix card, or an ASOS card)
  5. Enter the amount you’d like to fund your dollar card with. (Note: card creation fee applicable)

That’s all folks, you’re done. You’ve just created a Dollar card. You can buy and pay for anything with it and that didn’t even take up to 5 minutes.

But who says you have to stop at only one card?

Do you want multiple cards? Like, one card for shopping and another for subscriptions? One for paid ads, and another for just payment for all the online courses you’ve always wanted to take? Let’s add your cloud hosting to that list. 

Try it, really. Now’s the time to be limitless. You’ll wish you found this before now. 

We’d love to hear how you enjoy Barter. Share with us on social media: @getbarterapp (Twitter & Instagram)
