SimbaPay has launched a product to allow Kenyans living abroad to make M-Pesa PayBill payments, as a new addition to the existing SimbaPay platform.

Kenyans abroad can now pay hundreds of vendors and utility companies in Kenya directly via M-Pesa PayBill.

SimbaPay customers will not require a Safaricom phone number or M-Pesa registration to pay vendors via PayBill as is currently the case for M-Pesa subscribers living in Kenya. SimbaPay charges zero fees for its instant money transfers to M-Pesa PayBill numbers.

Kenyans living in the UK with a bank account, debit card or credit card will be able to use the SimbaPay app to make M-Pesa PayBill payments from any mobile phone, tablet or computer. Transfers made using SimbaPay to M-Pesa PayBill numbers are credited instantly. The service has already been rolled out to Kenyans living in the UK with other EU countries slated in the near future.

Nyasinga Onyancha, CEO for SimbaPay, said: “Our customers want to pay vendors in Kenya faster and without having to go through friends and family”. “This new product allows them to do just that, especially for time sensitive payments such as those to hospitals, stock brokers and the like”.
