Transaction limits for mobile money recipient accounts in Africa vary, determined by the specific country and mobile network operator involved.

Transaction limits may fluctuate based on the recipient's profile or tier with the Telco. Different tiers within the Telco system may have varying transaction thresholds.

2. Check with the mobile network operator or recipient

We recommend contacting the specific mobile network operator or the intended recipient directly to obtain the most accurate and up-to-date information on transaction limits.
