To pay someone new

  • Tap ‘Pay’ on the home screen
  • Enter the name or mobile number in the search box, or tap ‘+’ to choose a contact
  • Tap in the amount you want to send. You can also add a message
  • Tap ‘Review payment’
  • Confirm the payment

We’ll send you both a notification confirming the payment. If the person you’ve paid is registered with Pingit, they’ll get the payment straightaway. If they’re not, we’ll send them a text message asking them to register within 7 days to get their payment. If they don’t register within 7 days, the payment will be cancelled.

To pay a business you haven’t paid before

  • Scroll down the home screen and tap ‘Pay a business’
  • Type the business name in the search box or choose a category

You’ll get a notification when your payment reaches the business.

If the person you want to pay has linked their Twitter ID to Pingit, you can pay them by entering their Twitter ID instead of their mobile number.
