Pakistan-based branchless banking service Easypaisa has, reportedly, introduced new ATM cards throughout the country.

The new Easypaisa cards work with all ATMs in the country and can be used by Easypaisa Mobile Account customers to access cash from the Mobile Account directly at low costs without the need to visit an Easypaisa shop every time to withdraw cash.

Easypaisa, Telenor Pakistan strategy head, Omar Moeen Malik, was quoted by The Nation as saying that anyone with a Computerised National Identity Card (CNIC) can open a free bank account on a mobile phone in under two minutes, pick up an ATM card and link it to their account easily.

"Easypaisa is proud to be part of this innovation and link the existing ATM network in Pakistan to Branchless Banking. Easypaisa will continue to provide a wide range of financial services through its operations in the country, to ensure customers access fast, affordable and convenient services wherever they are," Malik added.

The ATM cards can be availed by Mobile Account customers at Telenor Service Centre or Tameer Microfinance Bank branch.
