5 Types Of Cars To Buy If You Move Around Frequently In Accra

Published

on

I have always had a love-hate relationship with the capital of Ghana, Accra. A lot of people may not agree with the “love” part except probably for Ga’s. All I did to reach my ‘stance’ was to follow my “Accra Stay by Plan”. This is simply a plan on how to manage yourself and finances to keep your chip above the waters.

I was about 8 years old when this miraculous guide was introduced and just like any child, I viewed it as it was; a signatory sign-off for one of the most popular radio stations in town. Until I became an adult and realized among other things that to survive in Accra you need to plan.

One of the things you need to consider in the Accra Stay by Plan is movement/transportation. Thankfully, the abundance of public transports like the tro-tro and taxi which aids non-car owners to move about easily. But then, are they always to suffer all these inconveniences that comes with patronizing public transport? Aside from the reckless driving that makes you say your last prayers, rude drivers and conductors and inconsiderate fellow passengers, you most likely won’t get to your destination on time. If you can cut back on your transportation expenses, you can save a lot of money.

Buying a car seems like a great idea especially when you have enough money saved up. And then comes the great realization that buying a car and maintaining one are two different things. If you are going to be moving around a lot, then maintenance would become a priority.  There are some things you should consider to determine the type of car to buy.

Low fuel consumption

  • If you are going to be moving around a lot, there are some things you should consider to determine the type of car to buy.
    KIA Picanto

What shall it profit a man if he buys a car and yet cannot drive it because he has no fuel money? Since the whole idea is to move around a lot in Accra, you are obviously going to use up a lot of fuel. Therefore, you will need fuel-efficient vehicles to cut down your cost. The KIA Picanto is a great example of a fuel-saver car and now you know why they are used for Uber.

Easily accessible parts

  • If you are going to be moving around a lot, there are some things you should consider to determine the type of car to buy.
    Toyota Corolla

A car is made up of parts. Parts are made of metal. Metal wears out and needs to be replaced. Go for a car that has easily accessible parts if you are going to move around frequently in Accra. Frequent movement means quicker wear and tear. Don’t get stuck with a car that makes you scourge the whole of Abossey Okai for just a tail light.

Lower mileage

Daewoo Matiz

Look out for the mileage if you are buying a used car. A mileage has close to or more than 100,000 kilometers, means the car has spent most of its life on the road and it’s in need of major repairs. Oils need to be changed and other parts too. If you are looking to stay on the road longer and drive frequently in Accra, I advise you to go for a car with lower mileage.

Air conditioning

  • Honda Civic

Trust me, stuck in a car on a hot afternoon in a car is certainly something you would not enjoy. And this is going to happen a lot if you are going to move around frequently in Accra. A burst of cool air could actually make a whole lot of difference in your day.  And then the notion about air conditioning is for the “bougie”. There is a little truth in that, but with the right type of car, you can turn into Cinderella anytime you step into your car.

Design

  • Hyundai Elantra

You would definitely meet a lot of people if you move frequently in Accra, don’t be caught in an ugly car. Aside from the aesthetic value of the design of a car, it also aids in its locomotion. Cars with sleeker designs are known to have less air resistance and thus more speed.

How to Send And Request Money With Facebook Messenger In Simple Steps

Published

on

Facebook Messenger allows you to send and receive money, as long as you have a debit card issued by a US bank. Once you’ve added your debit card, you can send money to other people on Messenger, or request payment.

This makes paying your friends back for the movie or getting rent from your roommate as simple as a few taps. Sending money on Facebook is a free service and Facebook does not charge any fees.

1. Add Card; Open the Profile (Android) or Settings (iOS) tab in Messenger. You can send and receive money using the Messenger app by adding your debit card to your Messenger account. To begin the process of adding your card, open the Profile or Settings tab in the Messenger app. Adding a card allows Messenger to deposit and withdraw money to and from your checking account. Transfers may take up to five business days to process. Sending and receiving money is a free service in Messenger, and Facebook does not collect any fees. Messenger payments are currently only supported in the US.

2. Tap “Payments” to open the payment method options. You’ll be able to add a debit card from this menu, as well as review your payment history.

3. Tap “Add new debit card” to add your card. Only bank-issued MasterCard and Visa debit cards are currently supported. You cannot use a credit card, pre-paid debit card, or PayPal card.[1]

4. Enter your card information. Enter your debit card number, expiration date, security code, and billing zip code. Tap “Save” once you’re finished. Messenger does not currently support cards from all banks. If your card is not accepted, try again in a week or two to see if support has been added for your bank or credit union.

5. Add a PIN (optional). In the Payments menu, you can set a PIN for the card you added. This PIN will be required whenever money is sent from the device. Don’t use the same PIN as your ATM or use your device’s lock screen passcode.

Sending MoneyEdit

1. Open a conversation with the person you want to send money to. You can start the process from any conversation, including group conversations, as long as the person you want to send money to is in it.

2. Tap the contact’s name in the top of the screen, if there is only one person in the conversation and tap “Send or Request Money”.If there are multiple people in the conversation, you’ll be prompted to select the person you want to send money to.

4. Enter a reason in the “For” field (optional). You can include a quick note with the payments explaining what it’s for (e.g. “rent” or “tickets”). This is optional.

5. Tap the “Pay” button underneath the (for) box to send the payment. The payment notification will be sent to the conversation, and the recipient can receive the money. The recipient will only be able to receive money if they add a debit card to Messenger as well.

Requesting MoneyEdit

1. Open a conversation with the person you want to request money from. If you have a debit card added to your account, you can request money from your Messenger contacts. Open a conversation with the person you want to request money from. Facebook does not allow you to use Messenger Payments for business transactions. If you use Payments to send or receive money for your business, you will lose access to the Payments feature. This is to avoid potential tax fraud, and because Messenger Payments don’t include protections like a retail payment would.

2. Tap the contact’s name in the top of the screen, if there is only one person in the conversation and tap “Send or Request Money”.If you’re in a conversation with multiple people, you’ll be asked to select the person you want to request money from.

5. Enter a reason on the “For” line (optional). This can be used to help explain what you’re requesting money for, such as “rent.”

6. Tap the “Request” button underneath the (for) box to request the payee to send the money. This will allow you to send a request for money from the other person. The request will appear in the conversation, and the recipient will be able to approve it. The recipient will need to have a debit card added to their Messenger account to send the money, and you’ll need one to receive it.

7. Wait for confirmation that money has been sent. If the other person approves your request and sends the money, you will be notified in the conversation.
