MTN launches mobile money bill payment

MTN Ghana has launched the Mobile Money Bill Payment service to facilitate payment of electricity and DSTV bills for subscribers of the MTN Mobile Money.

The new Mobile Money Bill payment service would offer DSTV subscribers and clients of the Electricity Company of Ghana the convenience and ease of paying bills, a statement issued by MTN in Ghana on Wednesday said.

The statement said MTN Mobile Money, the first mobile money service to be introduced into the country in July 2009, had over 1.8 million subscribers currently.

It added that the service was aimed at providing convenience to mobile phone users in the management of their monetary transactions.

Speaking during the launch of service, Mr. Eli Hini, Mobile Money Commercial Senior Manager, said: “Mobile Money Bill Payment is designed to give MTN subscribers the opportunity to pay their DStv and Electricity bills through their mobile handsets without having to travel to the offices of the service providers.

“The MTN Mobile Money Bill Payment service is ideal for all categories of persons who consider convenience as an important ingredient in their daily activities.”

He added that MTN, as a technologically savvy network, had endeared itself to its customers through the deployment of state of the art technology to address their communication, business and social needs.

Non-registered MTN Mobile Money customers can pay their bills at the nearest Mobile Money Authorised Merchants across the country.

Mobile Money transactions can also be done through Cal Bank, Ecobank, Fidelity Bank, Guarantee Trust Bank, Intercontinental Bank, Merchant Bank, UBA, Stanbic Bank and Zenith Bank.

Some services being offered on the MTN Mobile Money service include 50 per cent bonus on air time recharge from GH¢1 and above, money transfer to family and friends, airtime top-up and transfer to other MTN subscribers and payment for Data Bank investment premiums.

The statement said MTN’s technological contributions to the economy were being recognized.

It said the recent Network Quality Survey conducted by the National Communications Authority (NCA) put MTN ahead of all its competitors in terms of network quality despite its increasing subscriber base.

It said the company was adjudged the Best ICT Company of the year during the last Ghana Club 100 awards.
