4ward is a web app that enables purchase of scratch cards and result checkers like WAEC, NECO, GCE and NABTEB online.
The platform was created by Okeke Magnus, Joshua Olatunji (both 200-level student of the Yaba college of Technology) and James John, a final year students of computer science at the Abia State polytechnic.
How it works
Interested users can search and find the scratch cards they need and pay using their debit cards. Once payment is confirmed, users receive an SMS or email with details of the card requested.
Since the platform launched on the 16th of October 2016, it is probably safe to say that 4ward remains on its way to attaining the required validation. There is no telling how it could potentially be the bane of traditional cyber cafe attendants — who are known purveyors of scratch cards — especially as automation of the platform ensures quick delivery while also saving the user cost.
It will be interesting to see how 4ward warms its way into the heart of many Nigerians.
