How to convert airtime to cash

Let’s learn something new today on how we can convert airtime to mobile money. Many mobile users have mistakenly bought a huge amount of airtime from their Momo wallet they didn’t plan to.

This has not happened to workers of Edem Tends GH us before m, but we know a couple of friends who mistakenly bought huge airtime: for instance, buying GHC50.00 airtime instead of GHC5.00 airtime, which they don’t need.

Others have also sent airtime to people instead of money. In this situation, you will have to send money to the person again, and that’s probably a waste of money.

But thanks to MTN mobile money for bringing this new initiative that allows MTN Mobile Money users to reverse airtime to mobile money. In case you mistakenly sent airtime instead of money or a wrong airtime transfer was sent to you, you can reverse the transaction to mobile money.

However, there are a few things you must know when reversing the transaction. Here is everything you need to know on how to do airtime reversal for MTN mobile money users.

3. Customers are not allowed to reverse part of the transaction. You can only reverse the total transaction.

4. If the customer used part of the total amount he bought, he/she must buy airtime with his mobile money account to replace the used one to make up the total amount.

5. You can only perform a reversal within 72 hours. No airtime reversal is allowed after 72 hours.
