How to check my Opay account number
Your Opay account number is not so far fetched, your Opay account number is your phone number, the phone number you used in opening your Opay account, take for an example, my phone number used in opening my Opay account is 08114900422, then my Opay account number is 8114900422. So basically, your Opay account number is your phone number used to open Opay account without the first Zero figure.
This is because CBN uses a 10 digit system for NUBAN, your phone number is 11 digit, Opay through its PAYCOM service adopts the 10 digits of your phone number without the first Zero as your Opay account number, you can use to receive funds, from any bank account in Nigeria. Your bank name is PAYCOM, your account number is your phone number without the first 10 digits.
