New Features on BFX

Last month, we announced BFX, an improved interface for cross-border payments, built on the same platform you have trusted for years. In addition to unveiling new features that opened new payment corridors, we also improved existing offerings too.

Payments between Africa and Europe

When you are looking to make payments between Africa (Ghana, Nigeria, Tanzania or Uganda) and Europe, BFX presents completely automated transactions from beginning to end with our new integration.

The process is simple as outlined here. All you need is a verified personal or business account on BFX and the rest is a piece of cake. Your recipient should receive the funds in their bank or mobile account in a few hours. Note that for SEPA transfers, it can take up to 3 days across Europe. The rates are favourable and you are assured of the best customer service in case you have questions. Try it today!

A Better Way to Pay UGX and TZS

Good news for our people in Uganda and Tanzania! When you initiate a transaction to send Ugandan or Tanzanian Shillings on BFX, you will receive an SMS with instructions on your phone. All you need to do is follow the instructions in the SMS to complete the payment.

You don’t have to go through the tiring steps of changing your number to send UGX or TZS for other currencies. Say goodbye to entering the Merchant ID or Reference Code incorrectly or missing it completely. No more unnecessary refunds, meaning faster transactions! Your business is sorted now. 🙂

This process is completely secure and ensures you have a smooth transaction experience. This is possible because at the point of initiating the transaction, you will be required to add your mobile number before you confirm and pay.

For step-by-step instructions visit our Help Centre.

Save Your Recipients

You now save your most frequently used recipients on your account. You will be prompted to do so when you start a new transaction, or you can add recipients through your account settings.

You’re welcome try BFX today. Your BitPesa email and password apply for existing customers. If you do not have an account already, sign up on www.mybfx.co/register.

We will continue to improve the platform based on your thoughts and experience, so please do not hesitate to give us a shout on the chat bubble below. Thanks for your continued support!
