By Korir Isaac / February 8, 2019 | 8:04 am




Not long ago, paying for parking fees in Nairobi used to be quite a hassle. It involved bribes or driving around the city looking for a perfect spot to park your vehicle. Well, that is over now. Today you can conveniently pay for your parking using eJijipay.

eJijipay is a platform designed to allow Nairobians pay their bills conveniently. Apart from allowing one to pay for other bills like rent, it also offers a convenient way for you to pay for your parking.

Sign up for eJijipay

The first step to your convenient parking begins with eJijipay registration. This can be done through:

  • the dialing of the USSD code *217# and following the prompts
  • Using the Nairobi City County Mobile App

The complete registration gives you an e-wallet, which you can also access through the three methods.

Loading your e-wallet

Payments made through the eJijipay system comes from your e-wallet, which after the registration process is done, you must load it using M-PESA, Airtel Money, T-kash, Visa among others.

To top up your e-wallet:

  • Dial *217# and select ‘My Account’
  • Follow the instructions.

The Pay Bill number for eJijipay is 147147. You can use your phone as the account number if you are using the mobile top-up option. If you encounter any problem, you can call for customer support through phone number 0709920000.

The same can be done by logging in to your account through https://epayments.nairobi.go.ke/selfservice/home/

Notably, the payments work across all mobile money platforms. Also, remember that using the USSD code attracts charges from your mobile network carrier. Using the app or the online version only uses your bundles.

Meanwhile, there is also another new way of paying for your parking fees in the city, thanks to the partnership between Safaricom and KAPS that enables you to alternatively pay through M-PESA.
