What are the New Mpesa charges and rates and in Kenya for 2018? What are the New MPESA charges for withdrawal from an agent? And what is the cost of transferring money to an un-registered Safaricom Number?

In this article, we will answer all the above questions for the New Mpesa Rates, effective 1st June 2018.

We will look at what Safaricom is charging currently for their services. Now, the tariffs charges by telecommunication company, largely depends on the amount in question.

First, there are important staff to note down. To be registered as an Mpesa user is free. This can be done at the nearest MPESA AGENT.

In addition, depositing money is also zero rated. You don’t have to pay anything.

Thirdly, buying credit or bundles (data) for a Safaricom line is also free of any charges. However, if you buy for other networks, you will incur some costs. These include Orange Kenya and Airtel.

The Safaricom MPESA transfer and withdrawal charges only depends on one factor. The amount involved.

In a day, you can send a maximum of KSh. 140,000 using MPESA. However, the transaction limit is KSh. 70,000. Therefore, you will have to send the 140,000K in two batches.

Currently, it costs more amount to send money to an un-registered number in 2017.
