From head to toe, I can say with much conviction that I am every bit a woman. My long locks and painted nails will speak for my femininity. But more than my physical attributes, what will define my womanliness is my undying love for shopping. Even way back in high school, I remember saving up a portion of my allowance just so I could buy myself something at the mall.
Fast forward to today, I am still very much an avid shopper. But with the countless responsibilities I face day in day out, I find that I barely have time to troop to the mall to scour the shops for good finds. I have then turned into a mom who succumbs to the convenience provided by online shopping. (And when the kids want something.)
The common notion is that if you want to buy goods and services online, you must have a credit card to use. But for some of us who do not have credit cards, or are not too keen on giving out our bank account details, there is an alternative: Ukash.
What is Ukash? Ukash guides explains that they are vouchers which you buy- using cold cash- from worldwide stores, ATMs, or kiosks. The amount of the voucher is the same as what you pay- there are no extra fees to worry about.
Once you have your voucher, you can then use these to make purchases online wherever Ukash is accepted. We’re talking about thousands of websites here! You can also use Ukash to load value into your e-wallet or prepaid card, so you can use it wherever Mastercard is accepted.
However you want to use your Ukash vouchers, be sure to use them only on the listed partner sites. Just read up on the important Ukash guides as well as other sources on safety and security when it comes to shopping online, and you’ll be shopping in peace- just like every woman should.
Update: Ukash merged with Paysafecard in 2016.
