What is Paym?

An easy way to send payments

Send payments to people just using a UK mobile number – and you can register for free through Pingit.

What is Paym?

With Paym, you can send or receive money with any UK mobile number, without sharing your bank details. It’s a great way to pay your friends and family back without having to withdraw cash. If you already have Pingit, it’s easy to register for Paym. After you register, all you have to do is link your UK mobile number with your bank account.

Once you’ve registered, you can send money to any person who’s also registered for Paym by simply tapping their mobile number into the app. The money will be deposited into the account they register with – and it works the same way when people send you a payment.

  • How to register

    One easy way to get started with Paym is to register through Pingit. Our mobile payments app has been up and running since 2012 and is being used by more than 1.5 million people.
