MTN Mobile Money Airtime Reversal: Convert your Credit back to Cash

Have we not all been there before? That moment when you mistakenly send airtime to someone as money. It has happened to me a couple of times, through which I have learnt my hard lessons.

However, with the new set of rules that MTN has put in place on their popular Mobile Money Platform, such mistakes of sending money as airtime (credit) can easily be reversed.

MTN recently announced that mobile money subscribers in Ghana can now reverse money transfers that are mistakenly sent as airtime. The minimum airtime that can be reversed is GHS 10.00. Any transactions below this amount cannot be reversed.

The MTN Mobile money reversal allows you to convert airtime wrongly sent back into cash.

A pop-up message will be sent to the receiver to approve reversal. You will receive an SMS to confirm the reversal after the receiver approves.

However, to avoid abuse of the reversal system, MTN has put some terms and conditions in place. This will help prevent people from taking advantage of the system. Hopefully, it does. Read them below.
