Did you know that every minute, there are over 25,000 transactions happening on M-PESA? This translates to over 25 million per day. This is just but a fraction of how much mobile money has transformed lives and brought about continuing innovation each day. Last year in November, Safaricom announced the M-PESA global service that enables its 21 million M-Pesa customers to seamlessly send and receive money around the world, reflecting its acquisition of the capability to comply with stringent international money transfer rules.
Today, as M-PESA recently marked 12 years of the mobile money service, Safaricom has announced their partnership with Ant Financial services allowing Kenyans shopping on Ali Express pay for their purchases using M-Pesa
This brings much needed convenience in terms of payment options. We all know how stressful and anxiety filling it is to
1. Transact using a credit card: You’re not as protected against fraud when you use a debit card, and disputes with those cards can be difficult to resolve. With M-PESA, regardless of the situation, it’s going to be very simple to solve any problems you might have with payment.
2. Be secure once you fill in details: It is VERY easy for your credit/debit card information to be stolen and used by hackers or basically anyone willing enough to want to steal that information. With the move to M-PESA, all you need is your PIN and as long as you don’t give that information out, your money and info is safe and secure.
Once you select M-Pesa, key in your mobile number, you will then receive prompt on your phone to key in your PIN in order to complete your transaction.
