Stages 3 & 4

Developing your M-Pesa product

  • You can use your own developer, or connect to one of our M-Pesa certified developers in order to have your M-Pesa product created
  • The developer will create and test the product in our sandbox environment before releasing it to the organisation for full end-to-end testing.
  • Ensure the organisation tests payments, refunds, account reconciliation, clearing and transaction inquiries to ensure your product is ready to go live
  • If the product needs changes, the organisation can reject the product and send it back to the developer for correction
  • If the product is ready, the organisation can set the API to Go Live and start transacting with Vodafone Cash!
