A text message will arrive saying that their mobile money has been topped-up.

You can send money to Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda or Tanzania and soon across Africa!
Why should I use BitPesa?
BitPesa is cheaper than bank transfers or ATM withdrawals:
The average fee of withdrawing the maximum amount of cash straight from an ATM in Kenya is $14. If you withdraw cash twice a month, that is $336 a year!
The average cost of a bank wire to Kenya is 12%, which means that if you send $5000 a year to Kenya, you are losing $600 a year!
Western Union costs as much as 7% to send money instantly to Kenya.
Don’t waste your money, get set-up with BitPesa and save money every month!
