Sending Money

MFS Africa Enterprise uses the term “Payments” to refer to money (or prepaid airtime) that you send to a mobile subscriber. This differentiates money you send to mobile subscribers (aka Payments) from money you receive from mobile subscribers (aka Collections).

We provide the Payments API (doc:payments-api) to enable you to send a payment to a mobile subscriber, or to view payments that you have previously sent to a mobile subscriber. See the Payments documentation below for more information.

Related Events


The “payment.status.changed” event is triggered whenever something happens to a payment that you have initiated.

For example, if it is successfully delivered or if it fails. You can configure a web link to receive notifications whenever this occurs.

This will allow you to respond automatically whenever a payment is completed or whenever it fails.

See our Webhooks API documentation for more information.
