Online banking is now possible to excellent platforms like PayPal and M-PESA. Both services are recommendable due to their ease of use, and many have enjoyed the recommended benefits.

PayPal started earlier, back in 1998, and is still going strong today with access to over 200 countries throughout the globe.

M-PESA, on the other hand, began in 2007 and has since shown to be dependable not just in Kenya but also across Africa and some parts of Europe

Anyone may connect their bank account, credit card, or debit card to their PayPal account and use it to purchase from online merchants that accept PayPal.To use Paypal with M-PESA, your Safaricom M-PESA number should be linked with PayPal to benefit from it.

Before Safaricom Kenya’s partnership with PayPal, the only option for Kenyans to use PayPal to pay for their online purchases was to use a bank account.

Here’s the catch: first, there was only one bank account in Kenya (Equity Bank) that enabled money to be transferred from one account to another, and second, the procedure was very tedious since successful transactions may take days to complete.

The process was made simpler when Safaricom Kenya agreed to engage with PayPal.

Any user may have money sent to their mobile phone (M-PESA) or even from M-PESA to Paypal using the PayPal Mobile Money Service with M-PESA. You must be a Kenyan with a Safaricom mobile phone and an M-PESA account to utilize this service.
