Safaricom Mpesa Agent Commission Rates 2024

Last updated:

Safaricom Mpesa agents will now get better returns as Safaricom increases agent commission on deposits across the bands, especially on higher transaction bands. With the new tariffs, the lowest an agent earns on deposits between sh. 50 to 100 is 4 shillings. The highest commission is sh 190 for deposits of sh. 50,000 to 70,000.

There are higher commissions on the high-end deposit bands. Hence the Mpesa agent business is more profitable in strategic locations with high human traffic doing frequent withdrawals and deposits.
