Safaricom’s Mpesa mobile money transaction technology has become something we cannot do without. There are many ways of topping up your line with airtime, but the most popular one is through scratch cards.

It is simple to buy Safaricom airtime directly from Mpesa without a hustle, but many people in Kenya do not know that you can also buy airtime credit for your Airtel and Telkom Kenya lines using Mpesa paybill number.

Going to the shops and scratching the card is a task for some, so it is common practice for folks to load up their mobile money wallets and buy airtime from there at any time they want and fast.

The steps are straightforward. All you will require to enjoy the service is to know the relevant Paybill number. In some cases, you will need Kshs. 22 fee charges for above sh. 100 airtime you buy. This means that if you buy below Ksh.100 airtime, there are zero charges.

You can buy airtime for Airtel and Telkom mobile numbers using the paybill number: 220220, provided by a third-party agent called pesapal.
