Mobicash has announced that all Mobilink customers will now be able to open up a Mobicash Mobile Account by simply dialing *786#.
The offer is introduced to encourage the use of Mobile Accounts which will benefit the overall landscape of Mobile Financial Services (MFS) in Pakistan. As an added incentive, customers shall be awarded 250 free Mobilink minutes upon their first cash deposit.
Since all customers are now biometrically verified, the registration will not require any additional documents. Once the registration is complete, the subscriber will be sent a 4 digit PIN which must be changed for ensuring security by dialing *786#.
As this offer is only for biometrically verified subscribers, thus non-biometric verified Mobilink subscribers will be required to visit the nearest Mobilink franchise, Business Center and selected Mobicash retailers for activating their Mobile Account. In case a subscriber’s CNIC is expired or there is discrepancy in data available at NADRA, the request for an account registration shall be deferred.
Aniqa Afzal Sandhu, Head of Mobile Financial Services, Mobilink speaking about the offer said, “It is our way of thanking our subscriber base for successfully following the biometric re-verification regime and introducing convenience for our new customers. This offer is a step towards ensuring increased financial benefits to the under-banked and unbanked population of Pakistan. The one step Mobile Account set up will entice potential users to utilize Mobicash’s superior financial services.”
Previously, subscribers had to visit the nearest branch of Waseela Microfinance Bank, Mobilink franchise or Mobilink customer care center to open up their mobile account.
