Mpesa Charges 2021: Safaricom Mpesa Rates and Tariffs

Here are the Mpesa Charges 2021 you can always look up and use when transacting on your mobile phone. The tables below include Mpesa Withdrawal Charges, Sending Charges, and All Mpesa Rates updated in 2021.

Where would Kenya be without M-Pesa? That is a good question for another day. Safaricom’s M-Pesa is one innovation that has helped millions over the years. Recently Safaricom revised its Mpesa charges, and you will have to pay more to send or receive payments on your mobile phone.

The move to increase the Mpesa Charges by Safaricom came shortly after the 2018/19 National budget was tabled in parliament. Treasury CS Henry Rotich revealed that customers would now be charged 12 percent up from 10 percent of every money transfer cost in the budget.

Safaricom new M-Pesa charges will force the user to pay the following fees in every transaction:

  • All deposits to your account or receiving money on Mpesa are free.
  • Sending between Ksh 1- 100 to other MPesa users, you won’t be charged anything.
