Airtel Uganda is following in the footsteps of MTN by introducing Airtel Money Pay.
This means that merchants will be able to receive payment for goods and services using Airtel Money. The option of Airtel Money Pay can be seen on the Airtel Money menu when you dial *185#.
Therefore the payment method reduces any risks that may come with carrying cash and you also don’t have to struggle with small change amounts. So how does this work? The merchants will have a unique code given to them. You use your phone to dial *185*9# where you enter the merchant’s code, amount and then your pin. Payment is made to the merchant at zero charges on your side. Upon successful payment, you will receive an SMS on your mobile phone.
