There is no need to travel to a pick up location like banks as it used to.
Initially, remittances would cost both the sender and the recipient. But with Mpesa global, the recipient will not be subjected to any transaction charges, only the normal M-pesa withdrawal fees.
Direct international deposits to any mpesa account will reflect immediately, with both the sender and the recipient getting transaction notifications. This has greatly reduced the transaction time which initially has been not less than three days. It also greatly eliminates risks associated with money in transit.
