Why Ghanaians Love MTN Mobile Money
MTN Mobile Money is one of Africa’s most successful mobile money services. MTN Mobile Money is an electronic bank account on a user’s MTN phone. It allows people to store money on their phones securely. This balance can be used to pay bills, send and receive funds, buy tickets, top up MTN airtime, and more.
Ghanaians like MTN Mobile Money because it’s so convenient. Like other mobile money providers, it turns your phone into a digital wallet. In a country like Ghana, where most of the population does not have a formal bank account, an e-wallet like MTN Mobile Money is a lifesaver.
In fact, in Ghana, the service is so popular that 1 in 5 Ghanaians use mobile money actively. You can use MTN Mobile Money for cashless transactions but also to get cash by going to an agent at an MTN Mobile Money stall.
While MTN Mobile Money doesn’t allow money transfers outside of Ghana, by using Remitly, you can easily transfer money from outside the country into an MTN mobile wallet.
Remitly is on a mission to make international money transfers faster, easier, more transparent, and more affordable. Since 2011, millions of people have used Remitly to send money with peace of mind. Visit the homepage, download our app, or check out our Help Center to get started.
