Safaricom, NCBA and KCB have announced 40% discount on Fuliza transactions of Ksh 1000 and below. Customers will be charged a daily tariff of Ksh 6 for transactions between Ksh 501 to 1000 and Ksh 3 for transactions between Ksh 101 to 500.

If you Fuliza Ksh 1000 you will incur daily charge Ksh 7.2, tariff of Ksh 6 Bob and 20% excise duty Ksh 1.2. The monthly charge will amount to Ksh 216. For a Ksh 5000 Fuliza you will incur Ksh 25 tariff and Ksh5 excise duty per day. The monthly charge will be Ksh 900.
