First Bank, PayPal partnership opens a great door of opportunity for everyone, hop in!

Big news: First Bank and PayPal have teamed up to create a platform by which Nigerians can now truly do business online.

I am obviously excited about this because I believe this will pave the way for REAL ecommerce activities in Nigeria. The convieniece of just been able to make online payments and transfer funds across the world in 193 countries and regions globally, this is what many people have prayed for over the years.

How do you fit in?

Online payment solution might not be the final enemy to be conquered per se, but it is a major victory never the less. I expect many people to look at how they can start their online business now
