How does it work for the recipient in Uganda?

An active Airtel Money or MTN Mobile Money account is the only thing your family needs to receive the money in Uganda.

To open an account, the beneficiary simply needs to visit any Airtel Money or MTN Money agent.

Your family or friend will receive an SMS as soon as the money arrives.

They then enter an access code to see the credit limit available and use the money.

A menu will appear which will allow them to choose to pay a bill, make a purchase, withdraw money or Top Up, straight from their mobile phone.

There is no time limit for them to use the money, it will simply remain in their mobile wallet until they wish to use it. They can check their balance at any time.

Money or Top-Up can also be forwarded to another active Airtel Money or MTN Money mobile phone.

As soon as your transaction has been processed the recipient will receive an SMS to let them know they can use it straight away. There’s no need for your family or friends to hurry to withdraw or use the money as it will be safely stored on their mobile phone. The money is safe in the phone because it’s protected by a confidential access code.

Your family members can use the money in the way it will help them most. While there are many ways to use the money sent to your mobile, some customers will need to withdraw their money. This can be done at anyone the large network of Air Money or MTN money agents in Uganda.
