After Mobile Money Interoperability was launched in Kenya, we have been seen great changes and even lower prices to send money from one network to another. Airtel Money and M-Pesa have remained interoperable for a while now, however, the method of sending money across these two networks isn’t as easy as we have hoped.

  • Register using your M-pesa registered mobile number and activate it
  • Choose to Send Money > Select Airtel Money
  • Choose Other (Send to Airtel money beneficiary) or Bulk (Send to multiple Airtel money beneficiaries)
  • Select the Preferred payment mode i.e. Mpesa (Respective service charges are displayed based on tiered amount)
  • Upon payment, notification is sent and can be accessed via reports.

Another way to  send money from M-Pesa to Airtel Money:

  1. Dial *234*1*8#
  2. You will see M-Pesa Tuma Pesa Popote pop-up menu
  3. Enter recipients number
  4. Enter a PIN when prompted

Here’s M-Pesa to T-Kash Transaction Charges:
