Nigerian shoppers frustrated by payment limitations and incommensurate international shipping charges when shopping online can now treat themselves to the best of the British High Streets and accompanying bargains thanks to Mumzy Pre-Paid Gold Card, this card simply means, no more payment limitations and shipping hassles.
“The Power is in your hands to shop direct”
The Mumzy card was created by Entrepreneur – Ota Obiekwe, after recognising that some of her customers in Nigeria who used Mumzy Errands (International concierge company) to fulfil their international payment request, did so as a result of their Nigerian Visa and MasterCard’s being frequently declined by international online retailers, when attempting to complete online transactions. She said “All cards in Nigeria are issued with a Nigerian billing address which is not recognized by 98% of international retailers”.
Due to high levels of fraud, most retailers will decline a card with a Nigerian address, even though the transaction might be genuine. Nevertheless, some consumers who successfully used their cards on sites like Amazon still faced paying huge international shipping cost, which often negates the benefits of shopping online.
Most bargain hunters contend with issues like the inability to snap up instant online bargains advertised at 75% off the retail price and only lasting a brief period. The failure to use their Nigerian MasterCard’s means they miss out on potential savings and perhaps the opportunity to own a unique item.
Ota Obiekwe also explained that some shoppers were terrified of using their cards because of high levels of internet fraud and lack of identity security. Hackers have been known to compromise bank accounts linked to Cards and make away with millions of Naira.
Online Payment Solution
The Mumzy Gold Card circumnavigates these problems by offering a Pre-Paid card with a UK address. This card is denominated in pounds and is unlinked to any bank accounts, at the same time, customers do not require a bank account to own a Mumzy Card.
So, online shoppers hankering after the bright lights of London’s Oxford Street, their favourite UK brands, the luxurious decadence of Harrods or simply looking for a bargain can now purchase directly from the online retailers.
The Mumzy Gold card is for all online transactions e.g. subscriptions, retail shopping or e-payments

Ota Obiekwe quoted, “Your financial and personal details are not tied to the card, it isn’t linked to a bank account. The address on the card is a UK business address. Because it is a pre-paid card so there is no danger of internet fraudsters copying card details and tapping into other funds”
Shoppers are however advised to treat their pre-paid cards like actual cash, Ota Obiekwe said “You will not leave your wallet with a huge amount of cash unattended, in the same vein, you should not be careless with your card details.

Savvy shoppers have long since known the benefits of bargain hunting. The Mumzy Gold Card can take this financial prowess one stage further, making it possible to buy goods at a lower cost online which amazingly can work out cheaper than buying the exact same item at a local store.
“With the latest increase in petrol prices comes a commensurate increase in imported goods”, advises Ota Obiekwe. “You can make your Naira go further by buying certain items from the UK as well as save time and because the goods are delivered directly to your doorstep you don’t have to leave the house or queue for purchases.”
The Company Behind the Card
Mumzy Gold Card is a personal triumph for Ota Obiekwe. It all started with the parent company Mumzy Ventures founded in September 2010. The brand Mumzy has been trademarked in the UK.
According to Ota Obiekwe, “My vision is to make the Mumzy Brand a family brand, one that will be associated with providing families value for money and excellent international consumer services. A brand that is associated with honesty and integrity”.
Mumzy Cards has been tried and tested and is growing its customer base. Ota Obiekwe commented, “We have a list of happy clientele who are willing to testify to the joys of owning a Mumzy Card.
