What is Opay Account Number

Opay account number is a 10 digits number unique to every Opay customer. When you create an Opay account, you automatically get an Opay account number. With this account number, you can receive money from people. Also, transfer money from Opay to another bank, and your Opay account number will reflect as the sender.

The opay account number is like a bank account number in Nigeria. It has the same 10 digits like the NUBAN account number. And of course, recognised by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).


How to Check Opay Account Number

Sometimes you may forget your Opay account number or your phone number. In this case, you can find your Opay account number on the Opay app.

Here is how to Check Opay Account Number on app:

  • Open Opay app.

Is my Phone Number my Opay Account Number?

If you check your Opay account number or someone else, you will see a striking pattern!

Technically, your phone number is your Opay account number with a tweak. This is how it works: when you remove the first zero (0) from your phone number, you have your Opay account number. For example, if you register with the phone number, 08198765432, your Opay account number will be 8198765432.

This is why you must verify your Opay account with your phone number first before using the Opay app

Again, an example of an Opay account number is 8101234567. If you add the first zero (0), it becomes the person’s phone number, 08101234567.

Hence, you can easily know people’s phone numbers when you know their Opay account numbers.


Final Thoughts 

In summary, you can know your Opay account number from your phone number. However, if you forgot, use the Opay app to check you account number.

    1. Hi,
      Only someone who has access to your phone number can open an Opay account with it.
      So, if you own and still using the number, you can get it back through these 2 methods:
      1) Request for password reset on Opay app. Click on the Forgot Password? to start the process.
      2) Contact Opay customer care to resolve it. DM on social media, send email or call their hotline.

      1. I mistakenly send money to an Opay account number ) not phone number that has almost same name with the right person I want to send the money to what can I do pls

        1. Hi,

          Contact Opay customer care to reverse the money. A rep will ask for prove of sending money to a wrong account and investigate the claim. Opay will also seek consent from the wrong recipient to refund the money.
          This will take time to resolve so be patient.

          A faster route which may/may not work is to call the person’s phone number (Opay account is a phone number). Be courteous and explain that you mistakenly send the money. He/she might refund the money without you involving Opay.

          If not, contacting Opay customer care is your last resort to retrieve the money.
