How to Send Money From Mpesa to KCB

Sending money from Mpesa to KCB is a process that many Kenyans are familiar with. However, not everyone knows the best way to do it. This article will show you how to send money from Mpesa to KCB efficiently.

It is now easier than ever to deposit money into your KCB bank via a button.

Customers were previously required to visit a bank branch to make any transaction.

You only need the KCB account number, Paybill number, and money in your M-PESA wallet.

Mpesa to KCB Charges: How to Send Money from Mpesa to KCB

The first step to sending money to KCB is ensuring you have the correct account and paybill numbers.

The account number is the bank account number you send the money to. This is to ensure that no money is deposited into the incorrect account.

Here is how to send money from Mpesa to KCB Bank Account:

  1. Open your SIM tool kit and go to M-Pesa Menu
  2. Select the Lipa NA M-Pesa menu option.
  3. Choose the Pay Bill number and enter the KCB PayBill number 522522 as the business number.
  4. Next, enter the KCB bank account number.
  5. Enter the amount you want to deposit or send
  6. Enter your Pin
  7. Confirm details
  8. Enter ok or send.

You will then receive a message from M-Pesa and late on KCB bank confirming the transaction.

You should deposit the money into the KCB bank account within minutes.

Suppose you want to send money from your Mpesa account to another person’s KCB bank account. In that case, it is as easy as following the same steps but selecting the receiver’s account number as the recipient rather than your own.

Note: Safaricom’s Mpesa charges apply for this service.
