Why can’t I send money to Nigeria?

Central Bank of Nigeria just updated the regulation on sending money to Nigeria. The new rules mean Nigerians can only receive money not sent locally in USD. As soon as we enable the ability to send to Nigeria, we’ll let you know by email or via our social channels. Barter remains the easiest and reliable to send money to Nigeria.

Does it mean I would need to pay in USD to send money to Nigeria?

No, you don't. Your bank would still debit you in your local currency, but the Barter recipient would receive the money in USD.
