Safaricom Lipa Na Mpesa Paybill Charges [New 2023]

Last updated:

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.

Safaricom has halved MPesa paybill transaction charges, with effect from 1st January 2023.

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.
