Features of Palmpay

This is a digital mobile app that allows you to send funds, make payments, pay your bills, and shop online, from your home.

It has the “spend and earn” feature where you can pay bills, shop, purchase data, or airtime, and a specific per cent is returned to you via discounts and cash backs. This allows users to save a reasonable amount of money on the app.

This platform also consists of “enterprise products” that are offered to business owners to help scale and grow their businesses.

Aside from receiving and sending funds, there are other ways to make money via the Palmpay app. You can make money by playing the lucky draw game on the app, cash spree, rewards on all transactions made on the app, joining Palmforce, and awoof moni.

Playing Lucky Game: This game is like a draw. A lucky draw is made where you stand a chance of winning different cash prizes, airtime coupons, and discounts.

This game is a game of luck so you might as well not win anything. However, it is a game worth playing. You have to be a frequent user of Palmpay who makes transactions regularly before you are given a chance to participate in the lucky draw game.

Cash Spree: This is another way to earn money on the Palmpay app. It is a referral feature that allows you to earn money as soon as you invite someone and they create a Palmpay account with your referral link. You earn ₦300 for every person you refer who opens a Palmpay account and the invitees also receive a welcome bonus.

Rewards on other transactions: Other transactions such as paying bills, buying airtime, etc, usually come with rewards. The rewards might be in the form of Palmpoints or discounts. A 50% discount can be given to you when you purchase airtime. Also, a palm point is equivalent to ₦1. You can equally earn a bonus of 2% discount whenever you pay bills like electricity and TV subscriptions. However, it is important to note that this discount only applies to the first 5 bill payments you make.

PalmForce: This is another feature that allows you to earn on Palmpay. Whenever you refer up to five people who successfully register on the app, you automatically qualify as a Palmforce member. As a Palmforce member, you can now earn real cash instead of palm points on referrals. As soon as you refer people and they create an account on Palmpay, your rewards are paid directly into your account. In addition, when the invitee(s) make a transaction, you will earn a bonus depending on how much is used in the transaction.

Awoof Moni: This is also a referral earning feature, however, a bit different from the others. In awoof moni, you and the person invited get rewarded. For instance, if you sent an airtime coupon worth a particular amount to a registered user or someone who is yet to register and they redeem it, you will get a cashback of the amount you sent once the recipient redeems the coupon. This is a great way to get airtime for free just by referring friends.

 

The account has 3 tiers. Level 1-3. If you registered your account with just your phone number and name, your daily limit of transactions is ₦50,000 and the daily account balance is ₦300,000.

For level 2, you have to upgrade your account with your phone number, full name, a government-issued ID, and BVN. This allows you to have a daily limit of ₦300,000 and an account balance limit of ₦500,000.

For level 3, the same as level 2 applies plus your KYC verification. This allows you to have a ₦5 million daily transaction limit and an unlimited daily account balance.
