Mpesa paybill service has made it easy for people to buy goods, deposit money into their bank accounts, and pay utility bills right from the comfort of their mobile phones. However, to transact with Safaricom Mpesa pay bill services, you will incur some charges depending on the amount of money.
This article outlines the current MPesa paybill charges for paying bills by MPesa or sending money from mobile banking accounts.
From the tariffs, all pay bill transactions below 100 shillings are still free of charge. Initially, any additional transactions between 1 and 100 shillings would have cost you between 1 and 2 shillings per transaction, but all that has been waived.
