Merchants to request IDs for MTN MoMo transactions as of February 1

Users of MTN MoMo will be expected to display a valid national ID card for purchases at the MoMo Agent Point effective 1 February 2021.

The correct Identity Cards sanctioned to be used for purchases by MTN Ghana are Ghana Card, Driving License, Visa, Voter ID, SSNIT ID, NHIS.

According to the telecommunications giant, “when an agent makes a cash-out for a subscriber, the agent must select the type of ID and enter the ID number of the ID card provided by the subscriber.”

Also, this latest version will take effect on 1 February.

MTN Ghana unveiled a merchant payment app, MoMo Pay, in January 2017.

The goal of this move was to promote the digitisation of merchant payments in the open markets of Ghana.

For the first time, mobile money in Ghana has opened up access to financial services for millions of people, reinforcing the payment infrastructure and growing financial inclusion.
