It is no news that starting from March 1, Opay has mandated the linkage of your national identity number (NIN) and bank biometric verification number (BVN) to your account.

Please keep in mind that failure to comply with this directive may result in accounts being rendered inaccessible.

But you don’t need to fret; we’ve got you covered with a step-by-step guide on how to seamlessly link your NIN to your Opay account, ensuring compliance with regulatory directives and unlocking exclusive benefits.

To help users with this process, we compiled this guide with steps to link your NIN to your Opay account.

Significance of the Linking

Opay’s insistence on linking NIN is in line with directives from regulatory bodies such as the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and the Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC). This linkage serves a dual purpose: verifying user identity and ensuring adherence to Know Your Customer (KYC) regulations, a measure against fraud and money laundering.

Furthermore, the linkage of your NIN to your Opay account opens doors to exclusive benefits and services. These may include access to loans, grants, and financial assistance from both governmental and non-governmental organizations.
