Frequently Asked Questions

If you have already registered your NRIC/FIN or mobile number as a PayNow Proxy with another bank, you will first need to de-register your Proxy from the other bank. Please note that you cannot register the same NRIC/FIN or mobile number as a PayNow Proxy with 2 different banks. Once you’ve de-registered your Proxy from the other bank, simply follow the steps mentioned above to apply for PayNow with DBS/POSB.
Such a scenario might arise if you are using a recycled mobile number that used to belong to someone else. If you have never registered your mobile number as a PayNow Proxy with another bank, please Get in Touch with Us.
Once you receive your blue NRIC, please proceed to the nearest DBS/POSB branch to update your NRIC in the bank's records. During the update process, your FIN Proxy will be de-registered from PayNow and your NRIC will become eligible for registration.

You can subsequently register your NRIC as a PayNow Proxy, via digibank online, digibank mobile app or digibank (Wealth ).
If you have already updated your FIN number with DBS/POSB, you can register your FIN as a PayNow Proxy via DBS digibank online, digibank mobile or digibank (Wealth).

If you are unable to see an option to register your FIN for PayNow, it might be because you have not updated your FIN with DBS. Learn more about how to update your Personal Details.
