Activating M-Pesa

To enable M-Pesa as a payment method for Taxify rides in Kenya, you must have a SIM card (Safaricom) that supports MPesa.

Then follow the steps below:

  • Go to Payments under the Main menu and select M-Pesa
  • Enter your PIN when the PIN code window pops up
  • Wait for a confirmation message on the app screen and an SMS sent by M-Pesa


When the steps are completed, you should be able to pay for your rides using M-Pesa. After the ride, you will be asked for your PIN to confirm the payment. 


  • M-Pesa is only available on iOS
  • With in-app payments, cash should not be paid to a driver.
