Takas or Foreign Currency: Adding Funds to Payza in Bangladesh

As a Payza member in Bangladesh, you have Add Funds options to help you fund your Payza account. From bank wires to mobile money transfers using bKash, Payza’s options let you add funds in either Takas (BDT) or a foreign currency.

Because of regulations from the central Bank of Bangladesh that impose strict currency controls, it is often not possible to convert funds added in Takas into a foreign currency, or to convert foreign currencies into Takas. That means it is important to be sure you are adding funds in the right currency to your Payza account to meet your needs.

This table shows you which methods can be used to Add Funds to your Payza account in Takas and which methods can be used to add foreign currency funds to your account:

Even though you won’t be able to convert your Takas into another currency, you can use these funds to shop online at many e-commerce merchants in Bangladesh. Our partnership with SSLCommerz means there will soon be hundreds of merchants in Bangladesh who will accept Payza payments in Takas.

Adding funds in Takas

To add Takas to your Payza account, you can use either the Add Funds by bKash option, or the Add Funds by Bank Transfer Option.

Follow these steps to Add Funds by bKash:

1) In your Payza account, click “Add Funds” in the top menu.
2) Select “bKash”.
3) Follow the instructions to send money from your bKash account to Payza.
4) When you receive your confirmation code or bKash Transaction ID, enter that information and click “Create Transaction”.
5) Review the transaction details and confirm the deposit.

To add Takas by bank transfer, you must first add and validate your bank account. This blog post has more information to help you connect your Bangladeshi bank account to your Payza account: How to: Validate Your Bank Account with Micro-Deposits.

Over-the-counter Bank Transactions

An additional method to add funds in Takas to your Payza account is the Over-The-Counter Bank Transactions option. This option is currently unavailable but will return in the near future.
