Frequently Asked Questions

What can my child use PayNow for?

After registration, your child would be able to receive funds from anyone, including you, companies and government agencies via PayNow.

How can I register for my child? I am unable to locate the ‘Register the other POSBkids A/C holder (if applicable)’ button?

Kindly ensure you have a POSBkids / ePOSBkids joint account with your child to be able to register your child for PayNow.

Will I be able to register my child’s mobile number for PayNow?

No, you can only help them register for PayNow on the NRIC proxy.

When your child turns 16 years old, he or she can apply for a digibank account and register for PayNow on the mobile proxy via their own account.
