One of the advantages that Opay has over other mobile money companies is that there are many Services you can render to customers and be making your money.
These services are really a great way you can be generating massive income from your Opay POS business. Some of these services are:

But apart from making money from the customers, the major way to make money from these services is from the commission that Opay pays her agents for running any of the service.
This means that as an Opay agent running Opay POS business, the company would always pay you a certain commission whenever you help any of your customers to run any of the services listed above.
Below shows the commission that Opay would pay you for any service you complete for customers.
|9||Withdral/ Deposit||30 – 45|
Just as can be seen, Opay would also pay you a percentage of their charges as commission when you help customers make withdrawl or deposit.
To understand this better, Opay charges about 0.6% when customers withdraw below N20,000; and N120 when customers withdraw from N20,000 above. Then Opay would now pay you as their agent 30% to 45% rebate commission from these charged instantly.
Make Money By Charging Your Customers For Services
The major way to generate income from Opay POS business is by charging customers for each service you render to them using the Opay platform.
So, Let’s break down how you would actually be making over 150k in a month:
Depending on your location, you may be charging your customers at least N100 for every withdrawal/deposit of N10,000. This means that any withdraw/deposit less than or equal to N10,000 would be charged at N100; while withdraw/deposit from N11,000 to N20,000 would be charged at N200.
Then let’s assume that in your location, customers are able to make transactions of at least up N500,000 in a day.
This would give you 500,000 ÷ 10,000 = 50 (You charge N100 for transactions of ever N10,000 and there are N10,000 into 50 in N500,000)
So, 50 × 100 = N5000 in a day; and in a month, it would amount (N5,000 × 30) = N150,000 in a month.
This doesn’t mean you won’t be making transactions higher than this; if you are in a good location, I am sure that you would be realizing more than what we just described.
Not only this, there are still some other services that customers would also demand within the same day, through which you can also be making your money.
Remember that Opay charges about N120 for every withdrawal above N20,000; but they would still pay you back about 30% to 45% of these charges as commission. These means that you would even be collecting back some percentage of the charges.
In this analysis, there is no way you won’t be making more than N150,000 in a month as long as you are in a good location.
