MTN Uganda has officially launched its partnership with Shoprite, a leading retailer, to use MoMoPay as a medium of payment at all their stores in Uganda.

Speaking at partnership launch at Shoprite, Lugogo in Kampala, Christopher Ssali the Senior Manager, Mobile Financial Services Products at MTN Uganda said that more people are choosing MoMoPay since it is a better way of paying for goods and services.

“More people today are embracing cashless payments. MTN Uganda is committed to simplifying financial transactions by enabling people to transact comfortably and conveniently; this we believe will play a part in ensuring Uganda transforms into a cashless economy in line with governments efforts towards middle income status” Ssali said.

Ssali also noted that apart from being free of any service charge, MoMo Pay saves time as people can make payments directly from their phones without having to withdraw the money.

MoMoPay is a cashless payment system that enables customers to pay for their goods and services directly from their mobile money accounts at any merchant who has been registered for the service at no extra cost.

Using funds on your Mobile Money, a customer can be able to pay merchants directly to their merchant account. Customers can do so by dialing *165*3# or using MyMTNApp or by the merchant requesting for the payments. 

This partnership will see shoppers across the five Shoprite branches in Kampala pay for their shopping directly from their MTN mobile money accounts at the touch of a button.

Shoprite Uganda has retail branches in Lugogo Mall, Clock Tower, Village Mall, Acacia Mall and Victoria Mall.

Shoprite Uganda welcomed the move, noting that it makes financial transactions easier. The move to provide the MoMoPay service will add to shoppers’ experience by providing a more secure payment system that is guaranteed at all Shoprite stores in Uganda.

The Shoprite Group of Companies is Africa’s largest retailer operating over 2,700 outlets in 15 countries across Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands

Ten years ago, MTN Uganda introduced Mobile Money that has grown to be loved and used by millions in Uganda. Right now, MTN Mobile Money has continued to evolve with more than 9 million mobile money subscribers.

Mobile Money has also evolved from just being used to send and receive money to making bill payments, TV subscription, savings and loans through MoKash to making payments through MoMo Pay.
