‘’The Ecobank Virtual Card is prepaid and users simply fund each card with the amount they would like to spend online or gift someone else. This gives the cardholder the flexibility and control over spending.
‘’Users also receive an SMS and email notification for every transaction done which enables easy tracking of transactions.”
