The easiest way to get an approved MasterCard is using a PayMaya app. It is an online payment portal where you will be able to secure a Virtual MasterCard or Physical VISA Card for online shopping. Using Paymaya don’t require you to submit lots of documents to get approved, you only need a photo of your ID and you’re good to go. It has a limit of a 50k monthly transaction for a new account.
