PayU Nigeria payment portal has been integrated with Facebook ads charging system, making it easier for Nigerians to pay for Facebook Ads in Naira.

If you’ve set Naira as your money in your Facebook ads account and you’ve not been able to pay for your Facebook ads with cards like GTBank Mastercard, you can now do that by making use of “Naira card installment with PayU”, although you need to set up a new Naira Facebook ad account, through your personal facebook account.

So how does this work?

PayU simply accepts payment on behalf of Facebook and funds your Naira Facebook ad account. Facebook deducts payment for all your Facebook adverts from the prepaid balance and you can add more money at any time. So let’s say you pay N1,000 through PayU, N1,000 will be displayed as the balance of your Facebook ad account prepaid balance and it is from that N1,000 that Facebook will deduct payment for your Facebook adverts.

You will be charged in Naira for your ad campaigns and you can even set a daily budget as low as N500. So, if you’ve been paying like $0.01 per post engagement before now, Facebook might charge you as low as N3 per post engagement. So, you no longer have to assume you will be charged N315 per click or N499 per click.

So now, you no longer need to worry about getting dollar cards to pay for Facebook ads in Nigeria nor do you need to stress over month to month global spend limit which Nigerian banks have forced on their cards.

Both Master Cards and VISA Cards are accepted.
