Both TKash and Airtel Money users can now pay Merchants via Lipa Na M-PESA Till Numbers and Paybill Numbers.

This is a move  by the Communication Authority and Central Bank dubbed #TillniTill to promote interoperability between the biggest telcos in Kenya – Safaricom, Airtel and Telkom.

Previously Airtel money users had to input a USSD code *222# before sending money to a merchants using Lipa Na M-PESA as a payment method.

After the interoperability announcement Friday, both Telkom and Airtel users will now be in a position to send money directly to M-Pesa till numbers and Paybill Numbers just like how Safaricom MPesa customers do.
