Card Transfer Calculator

Total to be charged(US $): 0
Total to be received(KES): 0

Card transfers are paid immediately to Mpesa .

For card transfers, all cards are converted to USD automatically, then KES; so use USD even if your card currency is not USD.

How It Works

STEP I

Register on the website using a valid mobile telephone number (including country code). You will receive a one time password for site entry through this number. If you are unable to register using your foreign number, register with your Kenyan mobile number.

STEP II

Determine whether to send money to Kenya by Card (Visa/Master) or by SWIFT.

STEP III

Card transfer

All cards are converted to USD, regardless of the currency. So choose USD as the currency. Determine the amount of USD to send and choose the local payment as either Bank account or Mpesa. When this is done, AUTHORIZE the payment.

Our website only accepts 3D secure cards. This means that for every transaction you do, your banker will demand a one time password, that is sent to your mobile phone. If your card does not have this 3D feature, it will not work. For Visa Card, this feature is called Verified by Visa and for Master Card, its called Master Card Secure code. Your banker or card issuer, can easily add this feature to your card. Simply ask them about it.


SWIFT Transfer

We only accept USD transfers into our local USD bank accounts. Once we receive the funds, you can send us a list of payments to both Bank (USD or KES accounts) and Mpesa accounts. You can choose to upload payments directly to your profile, or have us upload the same for you.

A full statement of the funds sent, funds applied and account balances are available in your SWIFT profile for your constant perusal.

Join the many clients that prefer to use this feature, rather than dealing directly with a local bank. One of the immediate benefits is the fantastic exchange rates, and the excellent customer service. We are happy to go out of our way, to serve you.
