Over the past few years, making online payments have become a lot easier. A throwback to when it was first introduced in Nigeria, paying for goods online was a whole rigorous process. Then, eCommerce sites would ask buyers to make cash payments into their bank account before their goods can be delivered. Now, imagine queuing up a whole day at the bank just to make payment for goods worth #2000. Obnoxious, right?
