How to make money with PalmPay

Apart from sending and receiving money on the PalmPay app, you can earn money through it. Explained below are 5 ways through which you can make money from the PalmPay app.

  1. Rewards on all transactions.
  2. Cash spree.
  3. Awoof Moni.
  4. Playing the lucky game.
  5. By joining PalmForce.

Rewards on all transactions

Most of the transactions done with the PalmPay app come with special rewards. These rewards can be discounts or PalmPoints.

A PalmPoint is equivalent to #1. You can win discounts up to 50% off whenever you want to recharge airtime. For example, you may have 100 PalmPoints. If you want to recharge airtime of #200, the 100 PalmPoints will give you a discount of 50%. This means that you will spend only #100 for a #200 airtime recharge.

The amount of PalmPoints you earn depends on how much your transactions are worth. 

Also, you will earn a bonus of 2% (in the form of PalmPoints) whenever you pay bills like electricity bills and Cable TV subscriptions. However, this applies only to the first 5 bill payments.

Cash spree

This is a referral feature that helps users to make money on the PalmPay app whenever they invite someone successful.

If the person honours your invite and creates an account with PalmPay, you will receive a #300 reward. The person you referred will also receive a welcome bonus.

Awoof Moni

Awoof Moni is also a referral feature on the PalmPay app. However, this feature is slightly different from Cash Spree.

In Awoof Moni, both you and the person you sent an invite to will be rewarded. For example, you can send an airtime coupon worth #100 to a PalmPay user (or a friend that is yet to join PalmPay).

Once the person redeems it (or create a PalmPay account to claim it), you will get a cashback of #100.

This is a good way to get airtime recharge for free on the PalmPay app just by referring friends and sending invite coupons.

Playing The Lucky Game

This lucky game is more of a lucky draw. You can win discounts and coupons, airtime coupons and different cash prizes. Also, you can win nothing!

The cash prizes you win may vary each time since it’s a game of luck. To frequently get the chance for a lucky draw, you should perform transactions frequently.

By Joining PalmForce

If you have referred up to 5 people successfully on the PalmPay app, then you are eligible to join PalmForce.

PalmForce allows you to earn real cash instead of the usual PalmPoints. When you invite people and they create an account, you will get the reward paid directly into your PalmPay account.

Also, when any of these users make a transaction, you will earn a little bonus. The bonus depends on the amount of money involved in the transaction.

Although it’s not compulsory to join PalmForce, most people won’t throw away an opportunity to earn legit money. You can join PalmForce once you have up to 5 successful invites. 

PalmPay fees and service charges

PalmPay is preferred by many since its service charges are low compared to most banks. 

The first 3 money transfers you make in a day are free of charge. Subsequent transactions will only cost you #10 each time.

PalmPay app download

There is no browser version of PalmPay for now. To use PalmPay services, you will have to use the mobile app.

All recent Itel, Tecno and Infinix mobile phones have the PalmPay app pre-installed. If you don’t use any of these brands, you can just download the app online.

Android phone users can download from the Google Play Store. iPhone users can also download from the iOS Store.

PalmPay head office address

Despite being a Chinese company, PalmPay has physical offices in Nigeria and Ghana. The Nigerian head office is at 20, Opebi Road, Ikeja in Lagos State, Nigeria.
The Ghanian head office is located at 54, Senchi Street, Airport Residential Area, Accra in Ghana.
