What is Opay account number?
An Opay account number is a 10-digit number (similar to bank account number) that’s mainly used to receive payments from Opay users. Other commercial banks users in Nigeria can also transfer money from their bank account to your Opay account. For Example; you can transfer from UBA, Firstbank, Access to Opay account, or from Opay to other bank.
This means your account number with Opay serves the same purpose as your commercial bank account number.
Please note that without your Opay account number, you will not be able to receive any payment either from other Opay users or other banks.

Is my phone number my Opay account Number?
The direct answer to this question is ‘yes’. The phone number used for signing up for an Opay account is your Opay account number.
After signing up for an Opay account, the phone number used for the signing up automatically becomes your Opay account number.
But your phone is 11-digit, while Opay account number is 10 digit as said earlier in this post. This means not all the 11 digits would be used.
Without mincing words, only the last 10-digit from your phone number would be become your Opay account number. For example: If the phone number used in signing up for Opay account is 08109043100, then the last 10-digit, which is 8109043100, is your Opay account number.
