Airtel Money has streamlined transferring funds from M-Pesa to Airtel Money wallets in real-time without withdrawal codes. The new process eliminates the previous 7-day withdrawal limit at sender agents.
With mobile money interoperability, Kenyans can now enjoy convenient, affordable money transfers between mobile networks. However, awareness of the direct transfer option without withdrawal codes remains low.
Sending money from M-Pesa to Airtel Money is simple:
- Dial *334# from your M-Pesa registered phone
- Select “Send Money”
- Choose “Send to other Network”
- Enter the Airtel Money mobile number
- Input transfer amount and M-Pesa PIN
- Confirm details and send
The funds will automatically deposit into the recipient’s Airtel Money wallet for instant access without any agent visits. This delivers greater flexibility compared to previous cross-network processes.
Airtel Money continues enhancing its offerings to build an inclusive digital finance ecosystem in Kenya. Seamless mobile money interoperability with M-Pesa improves convenience while reducing transaction costs.
As Airtel Money emphasizes, affordable pricing combined with an intuitive user experience are essential to driving mobile money adoption. Streamlining transfers to Airtel Money boosts access and delivers significant consumer benefits.
Removing withdrawal barriers and educating customers on direct transfer capabilities will ensure more Kenyans can leverage interoperable mobile money for secure, instant transactions across networks.
