Any person having a valid CNIC can send and receive money to/from their family, friends, etc from any easypaisa merchant. This service is for all – not only limited to Telenor subscribers or other mobile operator subscribers, even people having no mobile phones can use this service. Also, user need no bank account or any sort of registrations, as the prime target of the any easypaisa suite of products is the unbanked population.

Easy process to send money through ‘Money Transfer’

The Sender needs to bring and provide the following for a Money Transfer:

  1. His/her original & valid Nadra CNIC along with 1 Photocopy (Mandatory). It is advised to cross the CNIC copy saying ‘for easypaisa use only’.
  2. Receiving person’s valid Nadra CNIC Number (Mandatory).
  3. His/her own mobile phone number (optional) & receiver’s mobile phone number (Optional).

Having the above mentioned things the sender needs to visit the nearest easypaisa outlet. This can be any Telenor sales and service center, Telenor franchises, Tameer Bank branch or easypaisa retailer shop. Easypaisa retailer shops can be conveniently found here.

  1. The retailer will check the sender’s original CNIC and take the copy of it along with the CNIC number of the intended  receiver.
  2. The sender may provide the retailer with his/her and receiver’s mobile phone number to get confirmation messages. He/she can also provide only his/her number. I personally recommend this as it gives a chance to keep track of the money transfer.
  3. The retailer now hands over his easypaisa enabled handset to the sender to put in a 5-digit secret pass-code. The code is not be shared with anyone other than the intended receiver.
  4. Now the sender will be required to pay the retailer the amount to be sent along with the service charger (shown below).
  5. The retailer will now give a filled out, stamped receipt for the sender’s record. Make very sure to collect this, as it the documentary proof for the money transfer. See the sample receipt here.
