You’ll now be notified of remaining MPESA transaction limit every time you send or receive money

Lately, Safaricom has been marred with frequent system maintenance schedules that has left some subscribers baffled. Some even went as far as to speculate what the service provider could have been up to, well as it turns out, it has been for a good course. The largest telco by subscriber numbers in the country has introduced a worthy feature within the MPESA service the lets you know your remaining transaction limit for that day every time you send or receive cash via the wallet.

Previously, there was no clear way to tell the amount you could transact in a day rather than basing on the official figures issued by the telco. This was quite a hustle especially for those of us who made several transactions within a day. From the latest update, you can easily tell the remaining amount you’re allowed to transact from any MPESA transaction message you receive.

Pre-covid-19 era, subscribers were only able to transact to a maximum of Ksh. 140,000, but the central bank of Kenya allowed Safaricom and other mobile money providers to extend the limit up to Ksh. 300,000. This was important especially in an effort to curb the spread of the virus by reducing cash transactions handled by Kenyans.

How to know your MPESA transaction limit for that day

As explained from the above editorial, all you need to do is check any of your MPESA messages; this can be accomplished as follows

  • From your mobile phone, open MPESA menu by going to Sim Toolkit for android or follow this procedure for iPhone
  • Make a simple transaction such as send cash to someone and check back your MPESA message for the notification
