Eyowo is safe, secure, and convenient for you.

Do you know someone who has sworn to never make an online payment?

Such people don’t add their card details on any online store or streaming platform. And yes, they have their reasons for never doing so.

My Dad still goes to the bank to send me money because he doesn’t trust online banking,” 21-year-old undergraduate, Kachi told me with a smile.

I recently caught up with an old friend of mine who gisted me about her Mom.

“She refused to get an ATM card after someone forwarded a Whatsapp broadcast message warning her about people’s ATM card details get stolen and their monies disappear,” Nneka recounted.
