Did you know that by simply becoming a verified merchant on OurPass, you can access a wide variety of easy, fast and secure payment solutions? Did you know that by becoming a verified merchant, you could also access exciting discounts and promos? So without wasting any more time; here's how to become a verified merchant on OurPass.

Step One:

Sign up!

First of all, you will need to create an account on OurPass (If you don’t already have one). This is free and takes just a few minutes. You can do this by downloading the OurPass Merchant App and signing up or signing up on the OurPass website.

Step Two:

Fill in your details

On the OurPass merchant app, you’d be asked to fill in personal details like your name, business name, e-mail address and password. Then, you'll have to choose a merchant profile and fill in the details of your business. You can even create another sub-profile for each store you run if you have multiple stores.

Include a valid phone number and e-mail address when creating your account. This will make it easier for us to contact you if there are problems with your submission or if we need any additional information about your business or service offering.

Step Three:

Verify your account

OurPass provides you with a variety of safe and secure mediums to verify your account. You would have to verify your account via your email, and phone number. For verification, OurPass would send an OTP code to your e-mail for you to input, which would be valid for only 10 minutes. You would also be required to verify your account with your phone number using USSD. By completing these, you are one step closer to completing your verification process.  

Step Four:

Input your BVN details

Then you’d be asked to input your BVN details, state of birth, and gender and you’d be asked to verify your account using a selfie, USSD or an OTP code.

Step Five:

Set a pin

Once that’s done, you’d be asked to set up your secure transaction pin. Ensure that you do not share or reveal your transaction pin to anyone- even us.

Step Six:

Receive email

Once you are approved for the merchant account, you will get an email notification about your new account being activated and also access to our Merchant community platforms. You can now start accepting payments via bank transfer, QR codes, and Payment links directly through our platform!

What’s new?

We were able to achieve the following new updates to the business verification process;

  • Created a new UX for business onboarding
  • Gave merchants the capacity to edit email addresses and phone numbers at the point of verification
  • Introduced USSD verification for phone numbers and BVN
  • Added biometrics (selfie) verification for BVN
  • and finally gave merchants the ability to edit the first name and last name (to tally with registered names) on the BVN verification page
