    • 100% agreed. All bullshit. Just a marketing stunt. You can’t withdraw any money and the deposits are only possible via bank accounts for online purchases. This is one way route. Lol

      • > You can’t withdraw any money

        1. You can transfer money to a friend’s account and your friend can give you cash.
        2. You can transfer money to another bank account if you have one and cash out.
        3. You can order an ATM card and cash out directly from your simsim account, just like with any other bank.

        #1 has ZERO transaction fees or costs.

        > deposits are only possible via bank accounts

        1. You can give money to a friend and your friend can transfer it to your account.
        2. You can deposit using UBL Omni shops.
        3. You can do a transfer from a bank or an ATM to add money.

        #1 has ZERO transaction fees or costs.

        > for online purchases

        I have used it at cafes/restaurants in Lahore. Is that offline or online?

        Take a moment and compare simsim with a service like Paypal. Leaving aside the fact that it’s not available in Pakistan, how do you think you “withdraw money” or “deposit money” there? How do you use Paypal “offline?” You have more options with simsim.

        • For online puchases you have mcb lite card, ubl wiz card, standard chartered and easy paisa virtual master debit. You have handy options with all these sources for deposit transfer as well as withdraw with zero fee (bank charges apply as it also applies for simsim). If you says these are not available on all online stores then simsim dont have either. But for local and chinese online purchases these are best and easy. If you want marketing then keep the local environment in your mind, Otherwise all in vain. Dont compare it with paypal ’cause we dont have amazon or ebay. Lol

          • What you can do with other services online has no bearing on what you said above:

            > You can’t withdraw any money and the deposits are only possible via bank accounts for online purchases.

            That is flat out wrong.

            > Dont compare it with paypal ’cause we dont have amazon or ebay.

            Buying things online is one use case for Paypal, yes. Another is peer-to-peer transactions. Maybe you should look at services like Venmo (owned by Paypal), or Square Cash. In 2016, Venmo transfered $17.6 billion dollars and it does exactly the same thing as simsim.

            Except, of course, Venmo doesn’t work in Pakistan, and simsim does.

            • Lol. For peer-to-peer transaction and to pay some bills, why won’t i use mobi cash or easy paisa? Why should i go for this thing which need a bank account or need to ask a friend or relative if they have simsim or a bannk accout (for a favor) . Except to pay some bills at some localities and to make peer-to-peer transactions what else does it give which other services don’t?
              My brother, my point is, just make your service more local (Pakistan’s) environment friendly. You know, we are in an initial phase of a digital world so make your services according to local available facilities and a common man approach. Look how jazz, omni and telenor started their digital pay system. They did a complete study and provide a service which is for a common man. With the passage of time they have expanded their services from sending some money (to a cnic number) to online virtual debit card and atm system.

              • > why won’t i use mobi cash or easy paisa?

                EasyPaisa has service charges for mobile account to mobile account (peer-to-peer) transactions. From their website: First 10 MA-MA (Money Transfer) transactions will be free in a month. Any subsequent MA-MA transaction will be charged at 1.74% of the transaction amount inclusive of tax.

                Jazzcash transactions of the same type, like simsim, are free.

                > Why should i go for this thing which need a bank account or need to ask a friend or relative if they have simsim or a bannk accout (for a favor) .

                They all have a “bank account” behind it. It’s called branchless banking, not bankless banking. Telenor uses Tameer bank, Mobilink uses its own microfinance bank.

                Suppose someone uses Easypaisa or Jazzcash to send you money. Let’s compare the process of you converting that mobile account balance to cash.

                Easypaisa: Find one of their agents, and then pay a variable transaction fee for cashing out. For Rs 15,000, for example, you can expect to pay 2.47%.

                Jazzcash: Find one of their agents, and then pay a fee of 1.75% of the amount you’re cashing out.

                simsim: Find someone who has simsim, and cash out for free. simsim has no middleman for cash transactions.

                > My brother, my point is, just make your service more local (Pakistan’s) environment friendly.

                It’s not my service, I’m just a user.

                > Look how jazz, omni and telenor started their digital pay system.

                I signed up my company for an Easypaisa corporate account in 2011. It has been a frustrating experience. It is extremely rare for my customers to actually make a transaction on the first attempt. The main thing that agents do not understand is that Easypaisa has “corporate” accounts that are NOT linked to a person’s CNIC, and without a CNIC, they don’t want to transfer the money. Also, their agents used to charge our customers Rs 200 in transaction fees on top of the money they sent.

                Omni is older, but no one I know has even thought of using it.

                Jazzcash retail purchases are the closest ones I’ve seen to simsim.

    • Oneload won’t let people send money to each other without fees.

      A common case: you go to lunch with co-workers. When the bill arrives, one of you pays with their credit card, or cash, and is reimbursed by the others. Does everyone have the right amount of cash at hand, always? Not in my experience. simsim solves that problem.

  • POOR customer services from finca bank, i submet document before 15 days for level 2 account but still no reply. I called help line many time……

  • SimSim provides us with an IBAN number, but no swift code and does not allow incoming international transactions. What’s the point of IBAN then? They should offer something which their competitors don’t. No service charges are good, but more unique functionality is needed for success.
    How about;
    1) international bank transfers (inward).
    2) increasing the limits, since an Asaan bank account in any Pakistani bank needs only CNIC, just like SimSim but they allow max Rs. 5 lac transactions/debit each month with no other limits and provide mobile banking, debit card etc, whereas SimSim is limited to 25k per day, 50k per month and max 2 lac per year. Is it targeted only for labourers?
    3) payment service via SimSim on daraz and other online shopping sites.
