Jazz, Pakistan’s largest digital operator and the largest internet and broadband service provider, has partnered with OPay, a fast growing mobile payment Fintech company,to offer e-pinfacility on point-of-sale (POS) machines through e-pins. Jazz is the first local digital operator to provide an e-pin service, in addition to scratch cards, offering customers a contemprorary approach to top-up their mobile credit.
Deploying Jazz e-pins on OPay’s current active footprint of 10,000 POSM enables consumers with a secure and user-friendly method to process top-up payments at frequently visited outlets such as petrol stations, pharmacies, and shopping stores.

The goal of this strategic partnership is to increase e-pins to digitize channels across Pakistan, enhancing the customers experience. OPay has plans to widely expand its POS network and that would help a long way for the partnership to grow.
