How to Pay for Things on NG44 using Bank Deposit or Transfer
Bank payments from our Nigerian clients are now processed using an e-payment platform called VoguePay. Its very easy, all you have to do is open a free online account with them and fund it by paying or transferring into their account.
This is the same company that helps us to process our ATM and credit card payments (click here for a tutorial on how to pay online with a Nigerian ATM card).
With this new bank payment method, you can transfer money from any Nigerian bank to make payment for our products, or you may go physically to any Guaranty Trust Bank (GTBank) branch and make a cash deposit there. This method is meant for people who are having problems with the ATM method or who do not want to use their ATM card online.

On the top right hand corner of the dashboard, you will see the current amount of money in your account. Anytime you fund your account, you will be able to see the new balance reflected here as soon as it is credited.
If after logging in you see any of the following “Invalid account” messages, you have to close your browser then reopen it and try logging in again.
STEP 2: Fund Your Online Wallet by Paying into VoguePay Bank Account
Now that you have successfully created a VoguePay account, the next step is to load it with funds. To load money into your online wallet, you need to pay money into VoguePay’s bank account and then notify them of the payment. Within 24 to 48 hours your account will be credited (weekends not counted).
You can either transfer the money online into their account or go physically to any branch of GTBank and make a cash deposit. As mentioned above, after paying to their account, you are to login to your dashboard and notify them. This process will be explained in greater detail in Step 3.
When your wallet has been credited, you will be able to make your payments on NG44 and get access to your purchase immediately.
Although opening a VoguePay Personal account is free, you will be charged a very small fee anytime you wish to fund your account. For bank funding, this fee is about 1.01% of the amount that you are loading.
To find out how much loading fee you are to pay for any amount, login to your account and under Transactions click on Fund Account. You can also click on the Fund Account icon as indicated by the red box in the picture below.
On the next page, enter the amount that you want to load into your account. Take note that the amount you enter does not include the fees. What you enter here will be the exact amount that will be credited to your account. It is based on what you enter here that your 1.01% fee will be calculated.
Only numbers should be entered here. Don’t add comma or full stop. Write 3000 and not 3,000. If you get the error popup shown in the following picture, remove anything that is not a number and try again.
Now, select Bank option and Click on Proceed to Payment Page.
In the next screen, the 1.01 % loading fee will be calculated and displayed under bank charge and below it the total amount that you are expected to pay or transfer to VoguePay’s account.
Sometimes the Total amount may have decimal places, always try to round up the figure to the nearest 10, 20 or 50 when you are paying especially if you are going to the bank physically. But if you are transferring through online banking, you could easily transfer the exact sum with the decimal places if you so wish.
For instance, in the example below, the Total to be paid to the bank is N3,030.30. In this case if you are going to the bank physically, you could round it up and deposit N3,040 or N3,050 to their account. To avoid delays, it is better to overpay than underpay. In most such cases, the extra amount is also compensated for when your wallet is being credited.
Note: All the products currently on NG44 are priced at either N3,000, N2,500 or N1,500. The below table shows the Total to be paid to the bank for each of those prices:
|PRODUCT COST||BANK LOADING CHARGE (1.10%)||TOTAL TO BE PAID TO VOGUEPAY (INCLUDING 1.01 % BANK CHARGE)|
When you have figured out the total figure you are expected to pay for the amount that you want to load, copy the VoguePay account as displayed below the total and go to any of the branches of the listed banks to make a cash deposit or enter your online banking panel and make the transfer.
If you are not making the payment immediately, you can log out of your VoguePay account at this point. After making the payment, you will be able to log back in and notify VoguePay as described in the next step (3).
STEP 3: Log in to your VoguePay Account and Notify VoguePay of Your Deposit or Transfer
Repeat the process described in Step 2 which is to to place your mouse over Transactions in the top menu and then click on Fund Account from the drop down that appears.
On the next screen (and just as described in the previous Step 2), enter the amount that you want to load (minus the fees), select bank payment and then click on Proceed to Payment.
Fill the Bank Payment Form with the details of the payment that you made.
Crosscheck to make sure that there are no mistakes in the information that you enter and then click on Submit.
On successful submission, a message will popup telling you that the submission was successful. Click anywhere outside the box to close it and then log out of your VoguePay account. It takes 24 to 48 hours for the deposit to be reflected in your wallet so you have to wait. Saturdays and Sundays are not counted among.
STEP 4: Confirm That Your Account Has Been Credited
After filling the form, your wallet will be credited within 48 hours and an email sent to you. If there is any problem with your payment, you will also be notified.
When you get the notice that your wallet has been loaded, Sign in to your account and check your balance which is displayed on the top right hand corner of the page. By now you should be able to see the correct amount reflected in your wallet.
Having confirmed that your account has been credited, you are now ready to pay for the product on NG44 and download it instantly without any further delay.
STEP 5: Make Payment to NG44
Now that your VoguePay online wallet has been funded, it is now time to pay for the actual product that you want to buy from NG44. To pay, visit the payment page for the product and click on the red Make Payment button under Method 2: Bank Deposit or Transfer.
