Owned by the same Chinese company that owns browser, Operamini, OPay is one of the most popular payment processors in the country right now. In this article, I will be showing you how you can get an OPay POS machine and start processing payments and transactions for profit.
OPay was meant to make making payments and receiving payments very easy. You get the freedom and the security of paying for goods, topping up your accounts, and making money all in one app. You can also pay bills, send money, and even withdraw cash from any OPay agent using the QR code.
The app also allows you to buy airtime, mobile data, and top up all your sports betting accounts with ease, without having to open another bank account. Your mobile phone becomes your bank account through which you carry out all your transactions. With OPay, you can even pay for the other services that the company is offering, like the OFood, ORide, OTrike, and OWealth, all in one app.
So let’s go into how to become an agent and get an OPay POS machine fast.
How to become an OPay agent and get an OPay POS machine
To become an OPay agent, you only need to visit the app store, download the OPay app, and sign up “to become an agent”. The signup is free, you will also get a free POS machine.
As an agent, you will be helping customers pay their utility bills, like electricity, for TV, like DsTV and GoTV subscriptions, and also finance betting accounts for customers. You will also be able to transfer money to the bank accounts of customers, and they will be able to withdraw funds either from their bank accounts or from their OPay accounts for a little fee.
To get the OPay POS machine isn’t as easy as starting your account. From what I know, you will need to have carried out some transactions totaling a certain amount. This is normal, though, since most banks would even require that you have a business that’s already active and you would need to fill more forms and submit more documents. If you manage to complete some transactions, chances are that you would have proven to the company that you can be trusted; they’ll then contact you.
You will most likely fill forms and submit a valid means of ID. They might also need your passports and a verifiable way of knowing your address. If you submit everything they request after crossing the threshold, you should be able to get a POS machine.
So what do you think of this article? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments and see where I could be of help in helping you start your OPay agency.
