We remain committed to our goal of revolutionizing Pakistan’s financial landscape, continuously striving to extend access of financial services to the underserved segments of our society.


    • it’s a payment system for domestic transactions not something that can compete with visa and mastercard in the international arena.

    • It will be good for local market because most of the shops dont allow Visa/Master because of high percentage of deduction…so PayPak kind of local solutions will help to transform economy on paperless currency and cashless purchases.

    • Can you explain how pure Islami? and what is the benefit of Islami if they give loans on high rates…and on the back end linked with State Bank of Pakistan that follows conventional banking system. It is just a name “Islami” to target specific mindset in country. Operations are same conventional banking system…but customer ends up paying high interest rate because it is branded as Islami.

      • Using market rate is not “UnIslamic”. Islam allows to use prevailing market rates. For example 15% profits are held (at least) in all commodities by retailers. If one charges 15% profit then its Islamic (whether you consider it low or high) and if charges 25% profit then its unislamic.

        Please raise question to clear your doubts at social media account of any Islamic bank and stop defaming Islamic banks without knowledge of how they work.

  • need paypal in our country, there are 198 countries in the world and the total of 197 countries have paypal available in them.

  • How is this different from HBL debit card or any other debit card. Those too can be used for POS transactions. big deal??
