Can I send money to Nigeria using my credit card?
You can use a credit card, but we don’t recommend it. While Visa and MasterCard are eligible payment methods, using them for money remittance is considered a cash advance and can cause the cardholder to incur fees. The best—and most cost effective—way to send money to Nigeria from the U.S. using Sharemoney is with a debit card.
