A very good news for Soneri Bank account holders and all Pakistanis is that Soneri Bank Limited has assigned IBAN (International Banking Account Number) for all Soneri Account holders which has simplified receiving the international wire transfers in the country. This was never easy before and only some chosen banks in the country were providing IBAN for their account holders. The banks Standard Chartered and Muslim Commercial Bank were the two most popular banks providing the IBAN for their account holders but unluckily these two banks have their branches located in large towns and cities only.
Soneri Bank is operational in almost all parts of the country including small towns. Previously, it was offering an effective mobile banking and internet banking, but the recent upgrade will surely benefit both the account holders and the bank significantly.
Many international banking systems require an IBAN to transfer money to your bank account. Skrill is one of the largest alternatives to PayPal which is operational in Pakistan. Now you can easily verify Skrill and can receive payments from there right into your bank account.
In addition, PayPal may also think towards starting its services in the country as poor banking system in Pakistan is one of the major reasons which prevent PayPal from operating in the country. If all other banks bring improvements in their banking system, then we may see PayPal in action in Pakistan soon.
