    Assalam o Alaikum sir can I create impact account from Pakistan bcz I am from Pakistan . Kindly guide me how to create impact account in Pakistan as it is showing me error of sending otp on my phone.

    1. Meer Basit

      W.A.S. Yes, you can create Impact Radius account from any part of the world including Pakistan. Go to sign-up page and fill the form. On the Company Information section => Choose Pakistan your Country. When you provide phone number choose Pakistan from the dropdown list and then add your phone number without 0. It adds +92 in the beginning. It is better to create Impact Radius account on Google Chrome browser. From Mozilla Firefox it doesn’t send OTP code to your mobile.
