Alternative Payment Solution: M-Pesa Market

Press Release   •   Apr 05, 2018 05:47 EDT

Worldwide Market Reports added Latest Research Report titled “Alternative Payment Solution: M-Pesa Market

M-Pesa is mobile-based fund-transfer and micro-level banking service available to customers of Safaricom, Kenya's largest mobile network. Introduced in 2007, the service has become a primary channel for fund transfers in the country. As of March 2017 it had an active customer base of 26.6 million in Kenya.

Originally developed as a low-cost microfinance loan-repayment system, it was extended as an open platform to remit funds and make consumer payments, due to its rising popularity. This was largely a result of factors such as the high cost of remitting funds through banking, a lack of banking facilities, low card penetration, minimal card acceptance infrastructure, and the high costs involved with dealing with cash in Kenya.

Request Sample of Copy of the Business Report:

Users can register for the service at an authorized M-Pesa agent, and transfer money from an M-Pesa account to a recipient by mobile phone. In addition to money transfers, M-Pesa users can also carry out transactions such as ATM cash withdrawals, and online and in-store payments using a mobile phone. Safaricom expanded its services in May 2017 to include NFC-based in-store payments. The new service, called M-Pesa 1Tap, allows users to make payments simply by tapping a card, mobile phone sticker, or wristband device that is connected to their M-Pesa account onto a contactless POS terminal. Furthermore, Safaricom has collaborated with Commercial Bank of Africa (CBA), allowing users to open an M-Shwari bank account on a mobile phone without having to visit a bank branch.

Following its success in Kenya, the M-Pesa service was expanded to nine countries outside Kenya, and is now available in Tanzania, Democratic Republic of Congo, India, Mozambique, Egypt, Lesotho, Ghana, Albania, and Romania.
