Opay debit card allows you to make cash withdrawals, transfer funds, payment and perform other transactions from Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) and Point Of Sale (POS) merchant. In this post, we will show you how to get an Opay debit card without stress.
Opay ATM card is being given to eligible customers after they requested for it. You can request for the debit card and get it delivered to your location.
The reason behind the Opay debit card is to give customers an option to withdraw directly from their opay account with either ATM or POS.
Before withdrawing cash from your Opay account, you either transfer from your Opay account to your normal bank account that has an ATM card or send to Opay agent. But now you can withdraw directly from the Opay account using Opay atm card (or verve debit card).
Kindly note that the Opay virtual card is different from Opay debit card. While virtual card is mainly for online payments, debit card allows you to physically withdraw money.
