MTN recently launched the same service in Uganda, Cote d’Ivoire and Nigeria. This service will also be available on the internet. Goschen added that the platform also allowed non-MTN customers, including those without mobile phones, to transfer or receive money using the services of authorised MTN Mobile Money merchants.
