While speaking at the handover of the prizes, Ali Monzer, the MTN General Manager, Mobile Financial Services said that the promotion is MTN’s way of giving back to merchants for adopting the service.
“Usually people take long to accept and uptake these kinds of services, but the response from merchants has been overwhelming. We felt the need to thank them and that’s why we launched this promotion.” Monzer said.
This service is available to merchants who register for the service and all MTN Mobile money customers.
