All About JazzCash for PKR

One of Pakistan's most popular mobile wallets, JazzCash is accepted all over the country. Created by Mobilink - a leading mobile operator - it's now one of the nation's most widely-used mobile wallet services. Today, we'll share more about what JazzCash does, how it works and how you can use it on BestChange exchangers.

JazzCash History

As we mentioned before, JazzCash was launched in 2012 by Mobilink, now Jazz. It's now a fully-fledged subsidiary following a merger of parent company VimpelCom (now VEON) with Warid Telecom. The goal of this platform is to provide a safe, secure and simple solution for financial transactions in Pakistan for individuals and businesses.

What kinds of JazzCash accounts are there?

JazzCash has two kinds of accounts: Business and Mobile. Most people will have a mobile account. It's designed for individuals and turns your smartphone into a powerful banking tool. Do all your payments, transfers and ticket orders from home with just your app. You don't need to carry a minimum balance or anything like that. Just make an account with your Pakistani CNIC to start depositing and withdrawing cash from over 85k JazzCash agents across Pakistan. And if you're a business entity, you can get a tailor-made account that lets you make supplier payments, sort salaries or do bulk disbursements with ease.

Using JazzCash to send money

For most people, sending money with JazzCash is their main reason for having an account. That's because it's a really popular way to receive and send cash fast in Pakistan.
