Opay vs OWealth has been the talk of the internet for some time now. Opay is generally a wallet where people can perform transactional transfers. Opay is a bug umbrella that covers many services such as OBus, ORide, OWealth, and the Licks. OWealth on the other hand, is a platform where people around the world can invest or save their money for it to generate interest. Today, we would be looking at the disparities between the two heavyweight platforms: Opay vs OWealth.
OWealth is a platform where savings and investments take place. It is owned by the Opay company. This platform helps users save part or all of their funds to get it compounded periodically. It can be daily, weekly, or yearly. The yearly interest is fixed by Opay to 15% (i.e 0.15) which is more attractive than what many financial institution offer.
The most interesting part of OWealth is that it allows consumers to save any amount of money. You have the choice of saving whole or part of your income or even withdrawing all or part of it. Many investors choose the OWealth platform to run their business because it is very lucrative and attractive. Also, lest I forget, the more you save, the more you earn. Just for a review, OWealth is a platform owned by Opay. They aren’t owned by different bodies so you don’t get confused.
For an illustration:
Most banks offer people who save a return on investment of 5% yearly. Now, for example, you deposit say, 1,000,000 naira. You are going to receive an interest of 50,000 naira annually. Now, you decide to go for a plan of 4 years saving plan. When we accumulate both the savings interest rate and the initial capital, you get a total sum of (50,000 naira × 4 years = 200,000 naira, 200,000 naira +1,000,000 naira= 1,200,000).
Let’s imagine you use OWealth with the same scenario above. You deposit say 1,000,000 naira. You are going to receive an interest of 150,000 naira annually. Isn’t that incredible? This is even far better than what the local banks offer! Now you decide to go for a 4 years saving plan. When we accumulate both the savings interest rate and the initial deposit, you get a total sum of (150,000 nairas × 4 years =600,000 naira, 1,000,000+ 600,000= 1,600,000 naira).
If you’re an investor, the choice is yours to make. Unlike other Banks, you can withdraw this amount any time of the day. You are not obligated to wait within the stipulated time. Going by our analysis above, a good investor would go with the OWealth Investment platform.
