Capital FM reports on the partnership between Airtel Kenya and oil marketing firm Total Kenya facilitating the use of Airtel Money at all Total service stations.
Going forward Airtel subscribers will be able to use the mobile payment service Airtel Money to withdraw or deposit cash, and make payments at these petrol stations.
The publication quotes Airtel Kenya Managing Director Shivan Bhargava as saying that each station will be set up with a unique pay bill name to be used by customers when paying for goods and services.
The service is reported to be readily available at Total outlets in Nairobi, Kisumu, Mombasa, Nakuru and Eldoret.
Airtel customers can access the service by selecting Airtel Money menu on mobile phones and engaging 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. 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,” Bhargava said, as reported by Capital FM.
