ALAT by Wema, Nigeria’s first fully digital bank that was launched last, has taken a step further to make transactions easier for their customers. They recently introduced the ALAT Virtual Dollar Card, and it is available in the latest version, ALAT 2.4. All you have to do as a customer is to update your app to the latest version and start to enjoy Dollar to Naira transactions as simple as can be.
Going by the official announcement of the company on its blog, the ALAT Virtual Dollar Card will be available only in the digital payment form, having the usual card payment features like; 16-digit card number, 3-digit CVV number, card holder’s name, and expiration date. These are the normal information you will use to make online payments in dollars on the various payment portals. Unlike the physical bank cards you can easily place in your wallet, the ALAT Virtual Dollar Card will reside on the latest version of the app.
Another important feature is the function of currency conversion. For example, to convert a dollar to naira, all you need to do is to make a request on the app using the Virtual Dollar Card. The conversion will be carried out automatically using the current bank exchange rate. This will save you the stress of dealing with physical banks or bureau de-change marketers.
