Can’t pay for your Facebook ads or run ads at all because Facebook is rejecting your Naira card or virtual dollar card? Keep Reading.
This article will show you how to successfully make payments for your Facebook and Instagram ads using a Nigerian Naira ATM card.
Step 1 – Log into your business manager account
If you don’t already have a Facebook business manager account, and have been clicking “boost post” to promote your business, you should create one right now.
Facebook created that platform just for business owners like you.
In other words, it is specially designed to help you
- target the right people,
- view different audiences you can sell your products to and most importantly,
- track the activities of the people who engage with your ads, watch your videos and visit your website.
Step 2 – Go to your payment settings on the Facebook Business manager platform
To access your payment settings, you first click the hamburger icon on the top left corner of the business manager home page.
Clicking the hamburger icon will open a pop up menu.
And on the menu, select “billing”
After that, you will see all the payments you have made in the past. (if you click billing and nothing shows, just refresh the page.)
On the top right corner of the billing page is where you will find your “Payment settings.”
Step 3- Input your payment method
It is on the payment settings page that you will input your payment method.
Select “Add Payment method”
You’ll be given three options.
- Credit or debit card
- Facebook Credit.
(In this tutorial we’ll be focusing on the first two methods.)
Method One – Paying directly with your Nigerian Naira ATM
To do this, simply select the “Credit or Debit Card” option and click “Next”
On the other hand, it will take you a page where you can simply input your Naira card information.
Facebook will accept your Nigerian Naira card and charge you in dollars at the current dollar rate.
If your card is still not accepted, you can try the second method.
Method 2 – Pay with PayPal
Select “PayPal” and click “Next”
You will however be redirected to the Paypal window as shown below where you will be required to enter your login details.
You can either login or create a new account.
On the PayPal summary, you will see an option that says “Link a card”
Select that and enter your Nigerian Naira card details.
You will be asked to verify your Nigerian Naira card likewise.
This verification will attract a $1.95 charge and will take between 1-4 days.
After PayPal verifies your Nigerian Naira card, you can proceed further to run ads on your Facebook Business manager account using PayPal.
