Change to Funding Process

Safaricom have implemented a faster method of funding your Popote Pay Account by Bank Transfer from banks other than CBA. This is an improvement to reduce the time it takes to have your account balance updated to as little as 10 minutes.  

 

Note that the old method of funding for bank transfers will no longer be supported.

TRANSFER FROM ANY LOCAL BANK OTHER THAN CBA

  • Select RTGS

  • Account Name: Mpesa Holding Company

  • CBA Bank

  • Account No: 333938301

  • SWIFT: CBAFKENX

  • Reference/Narration: Popote, Agent no, 938301

 

Afterwards the notification process remains the same. The attachment can be a remittance advice, debit advice or SWIFT advice, however in the event of a delay on Safaricom or CBA leg, we will be required to send them your SWIFT advice, therefore it is preferable to attach this rather than other notifications. You can instruct most banks to send you SWIFT advice automatically via email.

 

For assurance of same day funding it is also recommended to do online transfers before 2pm which is the RTGS cutoff time.
