MPESA Charges 2018 is charged from the amount you are sending or withdrawing using your Mpesa account.

When sending cash to someone, these Safaricom Mpesa charges are really useful for you to quickly check and know how much charges you expect to be added on the total transaction amount.

While you will know how much the charges for the person receiving will be, it is always good practise to Mpesa the amount you are sending with the charges that are expected for the person receiving. This will ensure the person receiving will get the full amount you want them to receive, rather than them receiving the amount you send less the Mpesa charges.

The Mpesa charges are grouped into categories which include the following as listed below:

  • Withdrawal charges
  • Transfer charges to unregistered users
  • Transfer charges to other MPESA users
  • ATM Withdrawal charges
