In January this year, the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) reinstated the charges on transactions between banks and mobile money wallets. The regulator had waived the fees in 2020 as part of cushioning Kenyans against the high cost of living that had been brought about by the effects of Covid-19 pandemic.
However, Airtel Money, in collaboration with several banks in Kenya, has made it affordable for you to transact from the bank to your Airtel line. This means, you can easily load your Airtel Money Wallet from your bank account at the lowest costs in the market.
If you are keen on saving on transaction fees, Airtel Money enables you to conveniently transfer money from your bank to Airtel Money 24/7.
To transfer money from your bank to your Airtel Money wallet dial your bank code with the line you initially registered for mobile banking.
