Mpesa, PayBill

Mpesa to Airtel Money

After Mobile Money Interoperability was launched in Kenya, we have been seen great changes and even lower prices to send money from one network to another. Airtel Money and M-Pesa have remained interoperable for a while now, however, the method of sending money across these two networks isn’t as easy as we have hoped.

  • Register using your M-pesa registered mobile number and activate it
  • Choose to Send Money > Select Airtel Money
  • Choose Other (Send to Airtel money beneficiary) or Bulk (Send to multiple Airtel money beneficiaries)
  • Select the Preferred payment mode i.e. Mpesa (Respective service charges are displayed based on tiered amount)
  • Upon payment, notification is sent and can be accessed via reports.

Another way to  send money from M-Pesa to Airtel Money:

  1. Dial *234*1*8#
  2. You will see M-Pesa Tuma Pesa Popote pop-up menu
  3. Enter recipients number
  4. Enter a PIN when prompted

Here’s M-Pesa to T-Kash Transaction Charges:
