How to Get Opay POS Machine: Become an Agent


Opay pos

The point-of Sale (POS) machine has become one of the most crucial things in a human's life, especially in this digital age. Whether you run a large or small business, you will need a POS machine to support your business for customers who may want to pay with their card or withdraw and make purchases.

   However, POS itself is a business. With a POS machine, you can make $100 or more in a week if your location is profit-oriented. 

  That’s one of the POS business strategies: you must locate the most profitable area before embarking on the business in order to avoid profit loss.

  As a student, you can consider the POS business as a side hustle, advertise your business (POS) to friends through sale promotions (reduce the charges by 10%), and gain a large number of customers.
But the question is, "Can I get a POS machine for free"?

   The answer is yes, you can get an Opay POS machine for free and become an agent. Remember, Opay is licensed by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) as a mobile money operator (MMO) and has the approval to operate as an international money transfer agent facilitating remittances to B2B, B2P, and P2P in Nigeria.

What can I do with an Opay POS machine?

All POS machines do the same operations, which are:
  • Fund transfer
  • Payment of bills
  • Cash withdrawal, etc.

How to register as an Opay agent

  To become an Opay agent, you must have had an Opay account (the Opay App). After that, upgrade your account from KYC level 1 to level 3 by providing your real bank account details, such as your BVN, date of birth, gender status, and state of residence.
