A little while back, My Safaricom App received a major update to include support for M-Pesa 1 Tap feature.
This now means that anyone with a smartphone having NFC can use M-Pesa 1 Tap without having to carry the card, wristband or sticker Safaricom issue for the same.
Here’s how to set it up:
- Download and install MySafaricomApp.
- Launch and tap on the M-Pesa icon.
- Tap M-Pesa 1 Tap
- Tap on “Get My Card” banner
That’s it, your phone should now be set up to make M-Pesa 1 Tap payments without need for the card, wristband or sticker.
Note that the M-Pesa 1 Tap feature will not show up if your device does not have NFC.
