    • Hey Florence,

      As at the moment i have heard of rumours here and there of the Paypal to M-Pesa service but the service will probably cost you a lot in terms of transaction fees.

      However, their is a legitimate way to withdraw from Paypal to an Equity Bank Account –>http://mobitrends.co.ke/withdraw-from-paypal-via-equity-bank-paypal-withdrawal-service/

      They have amazing rates and it is all certified and confirmed by Paypal.

      Thereafter, after the cash is credited to your account you can proceed to transfer it to M-Pesa :)

      Otherwise, the Skrill to M-Pesa service is the best as you get your cash in under a minute.

      Thanks for commenting

    • Hi Eunice,

      I am not really certain of the rates you pay for the Skrill to M-Pesa withdrawal. But i believe that it is in cents and maybe progressively increases upwards up to a certain limit. The speed of the transfer is what appeals me most about the service.

      I would advice that you do a mock transaction with a small amount and see how that goes. You will then get an idea of what you will pay for the larger amount.

      Otherwise, it’s a perfect service.

      Thanks!
