NAIROBI, Kenya Jun 19 – Airtel Kenya has partnered with oil marketing firm Total Kenya for the use of mobile payments service Airtel Money at all Total service stations.

The partnership will see Airtel subscribers register for Airtel Money, deposit cash, withdraw cash as well as pay for their utility bills at the Total petrol stations.

Announcing the partnership in Nairobi on Wednesday, Airtel Kenya Managing Director Shivan Bhargava said that each Total service station will be set up with a unique pay bill business name that the customer will use to pay for goods and services.

“This partnership will enable our customers to pay for their fuel in a fast, safe and convenient way,” he said.

He said that the service is readily available at Total outlets in Nairobi, Kisumu, Mombasa, Nakuru and Eldoret.

Bhargava explained that Airtel customers can access the service by choosing the Airtel Money menu on their phones and choosing the ‘make payment’ option.

“They will then select ‘pay bill’, ‘others’ and then enter the Total business pay bill number that will be provided by the attendant at the Total petrol station,” he said.

The customer will then proceed to enter the amount, the PIN and the reference number which is their car registration number,

“The customer will then receive a confirmation text message on completion of this process,” he stated.

He said that since the process is fully automated, payments are reflected almost in real time thus providing customers fast and more secure mode of payment.

Airtel Money currently has more than 9,500 agents countrywide and the number is expected to grow by more than 15,000 by the end of the year.
