If you have used Ewallet of Pakcoin(  the procedure is simple and self explanatory , as you can create a wallet online and use the same interface for sending your coins,but if you have used their offline paper wallet generator you will need to follow this

How to Sync PAKCoin Offline Paper Wallet with Blockchain

Surprisingly I couldn't find a single source where someone would have hinted with how to go about syncing offline paper wallet with the blockchain, so here it is

  • Step 1: Download the Windows / Linux / MAC Wallet . For this tutorial I will be using the Windows Wallet
  • Step 2: Extract pakcoin-qt.exe and run it , Allow firewall permission if prompted and you may have to disable your AV 
  • Step 3: Let PakCoin Wallet sync with blockchain (it can take an hour or so)
    PakCoin Wallet Sync with Blockchain
  • Step 4: On Pakcoin - Wallet click on Help > Debug Window
    Pakcoin Wallet Sync Wallet
  • Step 5: Click on Console on the newly prompted Debug Window
    Pakcoin Wallet Console
  • Step 6 : Enter the following on the command execute line (>)
    importprivkey PrivateKeyHackology "Free Coins"
    replace PrivateKeyHackology with the private key you obtained while making your offline paper wallet and "Free Coins" is your label so it can be anything you like
    Import Private Key to Pakcoin
    Note:  Once Imported you can check that you have the address by closing the Debug window and going back to your address book. You should see the address here. Restart PakCoin Wallet Client to see the new address in your Receive "Tab"
  • Step 7: Your backup of your wallet will not have this key in obviously. So before you do anything else backup the wallet.dat file as normal. As the private key will be changed 

Send Pakcoin to Cryptopia or any other Exchange

After you have completed the above its pretty simple to send your coins to cryptopia or any other exchange which supports PAK Coin

  • Step 1 : Login to Cryptopia and go to Balances and Search for "Pak"
  • Step 2 : Click on "Deposit PAK" next to PakCoin(PAK) 
    Cryptopia PakCoin Deposit
  • Step 3 :  Copy your newly generated PakCoin Deposit Address
  • Step 4 :  Open PakCoin Wallet and click on "Send" and paste the address you got in Step 3 enter the amount you want to send and hit Send
    Send 100 PakCoin to Exchange
  • Step 5 : You will get your PakCoin in Cryptopia in few minutes  

Hope this helps , generally the same procedure will work with all exchanges which are supported you can ask if there are more queries

Thank you for the detailed answer, much appreciated.
But i dont see any coins in my wallet after the above solution. I see that my private key is imported. restarted pak coin wallet , synced it but the balance is zero.
If your wallet address visible ?
what you do is kindly backup your wallet.dat file by opening PakCoin Wallet App:  File > Backup Wallet and save wallet.dat file
once that is done ..delete all the files inside :
 c:/users/yourUsername/App Data/roaming/pakcoin ,
now run Pakcoin App again .. and when you see it starts syncing just close the app and again go to the above mentioned directory and replace the wallet.dat file in above folder location with the backup you did ..
After doing that open app and let it sync it should work out and show Available balance
