Easypaisa has rolled out a new version of its Android app named as “Easypaisa App”. With this new update, the customers of other mobile operators can now easily open and access the Easypaisa branchless banking service that had been limited up until now to the users of Telenor Pakistan only.
How to register a new account through the Easypaisa app?
Opening a new Easypaisa Account through this app is a simple process where the customers register with their mobile number and CNIC, upon which a One-Time Password (OTP) is sent to their phone and fed into the app automatically. Customers then enter their desired PIN and use the same to login to the application.
Other new features include PIN creation from the App, eliminating the utilization of a mobile number and finding an Easypaisa outlet through the Easypaisa store locator feature in the App.
Other features of Easypaisa app:
- Money transfers to any CNIC, Bank Account or Easypaisa Account.
- Pay utility bills.
- Buy any operator’s airtime effortlessly.
Easypaisa claims that this new service is very cost effective. The company says that sending the money to CNIC holders within Pakistan from the app is up to 23% cheaper compared to the market.
Moreover, transferring money to other Easypaisa Account holders through the application is free for the first ten transactions every month. A new Easypaisa Account holder using Easyload via the application on their mobile number will also receive a tax deduction of up to PKR 50 per month as a bonus.
Muhammad Yahya Khan, Head of Easypaisa, while commenting on the new development said, ‘Given the trust and reliability that Easypaisa has earned during its remarkable 7-year journey, everyone wanted to use Easypaisa to make financial transactions but were restricted due to their mobile operators. With the Easypaisa App, our objective is to accelerate digital financial inclusion in the country through multi-channel and user-friendly interfaces.’
Easypaisa offers its customers a choice between USSD, phone banking, ATM, SMS service and Easypaisa App. You can download the app from Google’s Play Store.
