SAFARICOM CONVERTER: HOW TO QUICKLY CREDIT THE MPESA ACCOUNT
Safaricom is one of Kenya’s and East Africa’s most well-known telecommunications companies. It has several subscribers and hence it’s use is rated at the peak compared to other network operators.
Mpesa is a function that allows users to view personal safaricom account information, send money within and across networks, purchase airtime for safaricom and other network subscribers, and pay bills, among other things.
Sometimes you may want to purchase credit directly from M-PESA, from the sim toolkit. It’s a simple process and unless you pay little attention, you may end up sending unwanted commands like feeding in large credit amounts unnecessarily.
Have you ever purchased MPESA credit and, by chance, put in a bigger quantity than you intended? If that’s the case, I’ll teach you two methods for converting safaricom credit to M-pesa if you’re in this circumstance. Take a look at them below.
a. Making use of bambaswap
Bambaswap is a little known website where you can exchange airtime for money. It can easily be accessed online.
Steps to follow to convert airtime to cash
i. Simply go to bambaswap.com.
ii. You will see various highlighted command requests.
iii. Click the “convert airtime to cash” button.
iv. Then Enter the desired amount you wish to convert to cash
v. Enter your phone number in the spaces provided.
vi. Press the go button. An instant mpesa confirmation message will be sent directly to your inbox messages.
The process is complete and your credit is therefore processed.
b. Reversing the process
In case you sent money to a wrong number and could wish to reverse, the process is possible and simple. You can cancel an MPESA transaction sent to a subscriber you never intended.
Steps to follow in M-PESA transaction reversal
i. Forward the text message you received from M-PESA to 456.
ii. An automatic message will follow indicating that you’ve initiated a reversal request.
iii. Wait for M-PESA to reverse the money.
Note that transaction cost will not be reversed.
Alternatively, you can contact safaricom customer service on 100 and present your request to the next available agent.
