The updated mpesa agent commission table seeks to reward mpesa agents for transacting higher amounts.
Of course, you will need to hold sufficient float in your MPESA wallet but you will definitely get a return on your investment, especially if you have good clientele base.
MPESA agent commission table: deposit transactions
|Amount (transaction band)||Applicable Commission in sh.|
On average, the deposit commissions range between 12-17% across the various transaction bands. And as you have noted, Safaricom has introduced a new Kshs.0- 49 transaction band to cater for small transfers.
The restructuring of the deposit transaction bands is also intended to discourage deposit split which has been rampant among dishonest Mpesa agents.
