How to request money from another person

Did you know that you can request money from another person by simply providing their phone number? This person will receive your request and send you the requested amount. To use the service you would need to register with PaySend or log in to your account with us. You will see a tab called Request in the top menu, click on it and fill in the phone number of the person you would like to request money from. Select the amount you wish to receive and a purpose of your request. Remember that every request is valid for 30 days and it will expire if your sender will not accept it during this period. After that you will be asked to provide your card details, i.e. where you want the money to be sent to. Enter your card number, its expiry date and your full name. Next screen will show the summary of your request – the amount, the phone number of your sender, a purpose of your request, your name and your card details. If information is correct click Agree button and your request will be on its way!

What happens next? Thanks to our amazing technology your sender will receive a text message with a link to your money request. They will need to click on it to accept it so they will be able to send money directly to the card already provided by you. Once your request is accepted you will see that your card was topped up for a given amount, i.e. you will receive a money transfer from your sender. And then it’s up to you how you want to spend it – buy groceries or pay for goods and services online. You can also withdraw your money transfer from millions of ATM worldwide. Asking for money has never been easier!
