Vodafone M-Pesa is a Mobile Wallet service from Vodafone that offers Money Transfer, Bill & Utility Pay, Merchant payments and Business Solutions (Enterprise Cash Management) enabling instant transfer and receipt of money anytime, from anywhere.

 

M-Pesa allows users to deposit, withdraw, transfer money and pay for goods and services easily with a mobile device. Other services include financing and micro-financing. M-Pesa was launched in 2007 by Vodafone for Safaricom and Vodacom, the largest mobile network operators in Kenya and Tanzania. 

 

M-Pesa has since expanded to South Africa, Afghanistan, India, Romania and in 2015, to Albania.

  • Enviar saldos utilizando mensajes de texto SMS protegidos con PIN a otros usuarios (incluidos los vendedores de bienes y servicios)

The service has been lauded for giving millions of people access to the formal financial system and for reducing crime in otherwise largely cash-based societies.

¿Qué son los pagos móviles?

 

Ya sea que se trate de reservar viajes, comprar en línea, pagar préstamos o enviar dinero a amigos y familiares, se deben hacer los pagos. Los pagos móviles hacen que el proceso sea eficiente y efectivo. En lugar de dinero en efectivo y tarjetas de crédito, los pagos móviles permiten a los clientes usar un dispositivo móvil, que llevan a todas partes, para pagar bienes y servicios.

En la industria de viajes africana, los pagos móviles simplifican el proceso de reserva al permitir a los usuarios con una cuenta de dinero móvil en cualquier país hacer compras de viaje al instante en sus países de origen y en el extranjero.

 

 

 

Benefits of Mobile Payment Solutions

Mobile payments are a great solution for providing financial services to the unbanked population of the world (estimated at 50% of the world’s adult population, according to Financial Access’ 2009 Report “Half the World is Unbanked”). Because 70% of Africa now has mobile phones and banks in this part of the world are inaccessible to most of the population, mobile payment solutions are an effective way to supply the banking services needed by the people.

Millenials succombing to to M-Pesa

The notorious Google made a decision to allow customers to pay for applications using M-Pesa has buttressed the idea that for multinationals based in Kenya, Safaricom’s mobile money service is the par excellence agent of localisation. For a while, Google mandated that consumers in Kenya had to pay for apps and games bought from its Play Store and Game Store using credit cards, as though they were in developed countries such as the US where there is a widespread use of cards. The use of credit and debit cards in Kenya is not as widespread as mobile money transfer services which, besides M-Pesa, also include Airtel Money, Equity Bank’s Equitel. By restricting payment to credit and debit cards, the Internet giant not only locked out close to 27.8 million users of M-Pesa but also belied Google’s ambition to reach every corner of the earth.

Google Play now accepts M-Pesa payments

Google Play apps and games store now accepts payments in Kenya through popular mobile money platform M-Pesa. This is an attempt to boost downloads in a market where many people do not used credit cards. Safaricom, the telecommunication giant behind MPESA said on Thursday that it had partnered with London-based global payments platform provider, DOCOMO Digital, to enable users pay through M-Pesa. “This is very important to the developer ecosystem in markets where credit card penetration is low,” said Mahir Sain, head of Africa Android partnerships at Google, which is owned by Alphabet Inc.

 

M-Pesa, which enables customers to transfer money and pay bills via mobile phone, has 27.8 million users in the nation of 45 million people where Google’s Android platform dominates. M-Pesa has been mimicked across Africa and in other markets. Safaricom has 13 million smart phones on its network, most of them using the Android platform. Safaricom has been searching for ways to expand M-Pesa for some time, as reported in 2017, but its hands have been tied by the wishes of its parent company, Vodafone, according to PYMNTS.com. The company is much larger than its two main competitors in the local mobile market, with 29.4 million users — 71.9 percent of Kenya’s total market. It is 35 percent-owned by South African group Vodacom and 5 percent-owned by Vodacom’s major shareholder Vodafone.
