  1. This just made me sad. After registering and becoming a verified user of Vogue, I can’t receive dollars on my website until I under another round of verification on.
    That’s too sad.

      Please note that there is need for additional KYC before you can start accepting international payment.

      You can download the form, fill it with your details to request international gateway access.

      1. What about those who wants to just transfer funds from their dollar accounts to VoguePay before withdrawing it into their account? Do they also have to go register a business with CAC? If yes, that’s too bad.

          Hi Abraham,

          The international gateway access is used to manage transactions (i.e when others want to pay you) If that is what you need to do, you will have to comply with the procedure to enable it as this is part of our KYC obligations.

          On the other hand, if you are referring to transferring your own money in USD to VoguePay before withdrawing it out in Naira, this is what applies.

          1. As at now, VoguePay does not have integration with other 3rd parties to allow you move money from their account to VoguePay (e.g from PayPal to VoguePay). We are hopeful that our upcoming Bitcoin integration can help in such transactions in the near future.

          2. You can send a mail to to know how we approach sending money in USD payment to Naira for collection.

    Please I want to know how I can set up my website to receive payment in USD without conversion to Naira. I need payments to hit my USD account direct…no conversions. What are the charges that apply in this case?

      Hello emmanuel, at the moment (as a result of CBN policy), merchants in Nigeria are expected to be settled in local currency even if transactions involve FX.

      We will be willing to discuss an approach that can work for your specific need. Please send a mail to for better advice.

  3. I filled the form and sent it back. They couldn’t activate the USD feature because the gateway was unavailable at that moment? That was the response I got sometime last year. Can I retry now?
