    will see customers paying for their shopping using MoMo Pay across its five
    outlets in Uganda
  • Shoprite
    is one of the over 75,000 registered merchants in Uganda
  • MTN
    Uganda states this move is part of its strategic drive to transform Uganda into
    a cashless economy

MTN Uganda has officially launched its partnership with Shoprite, a leading retailer, to use MoMoPay as a medium of payment at all their stores in Uganda.

Speaking
at partnership launch at Shoprite, Lugogo in Kampala, Christopher Ssali the
Senior Manager, Mobile Financial Services Products at MTN Uganda said that more
people are choosing MoMoPay since it is a better way of paying for goods and
services.

“More people today are embracing
cashless payments. MTN Uganda is committed to simplifying financial
transactions by enabling people to transact comfortably and conveniently; this
we believe will play a part in ensuring Uganda transforms into a cashless
economy in line with governments efforts towards middle
income status” Ssali said.

Ssali
also noted that apart from being free of any service charge, MoMo Pay saves
time as people can make payments directly from their phones without having to
withdraw the money.

MoMoPay
is a cashless payment system that enables customers to pay for their goods and
services directly from their mobile money accounts at any merchant who has been
registered for the service at no extra cost.

Using
funds on your Mobile Money, a customer can be able to pay merchants directly to
their merchant account. Customers can do so by dialing *165*3# or using
MyMTNApp or by the merchant requesting for the payments. 

This
partnership will see shoppers across the five Shoprite branches in Kampala pay
for their shopping directly from their MTN mobile money accounts at the touch
of a button.

Shoprite
Uganda has retail branches in Lugogo Mall, Clock Tower, Village Mall, Acacia
Mall and Victoria Mall.

Shoprite
Uganda welcomed the move, noting that it makes financial transactions easier.
The move to provide the MoMoPay service will add to shoppers’ experience by
providing a more secure payment system that is guaranteed at all Shoprite stores
in Uganda.

The
Shoprite Group of Companies is Africa’s largest retailer operating over 2,700
outlets in 15 countries across Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands

Ten
years ago, MTN Uganda introduced Mobile Money that has grown to be loved and
used by millions in Uganda. Right now, MTN Mobile Money has continued to evolve
with more than 9 million mobile money subscribers.

Mobile
Money has also evolved from just being used to send and receive money to making
bill payments, TV subscription, savings and loans through MoKash to making
payments through MoMo Pay.
