MTN Mobile Money Cash Out Charges from an Agent

Withdrawing your Mobile Money from an agent is the common way you can withdraw your money. The withdrawal charges are the same everywhere you go. The saying that MTN charges more when withdrawing from one agent than another agent is not true. They use a simple method for this. 

The charges are calculated based on the amount you are withdrawing. The amount can be in three categories; below GHS 50, between GHS550 and GHS 1000, and above GHS 1000.

  • If you are withdrawing an amount less than GHS50, you will be charged GHS 0.5. For example, if you want to withdraw GHS 20, you will be charged GHS 0.5. Also, if you’re going to withdraw GHS49, you will be charged GHS 0.5. The GHS 0.5 charge is fixed.
  • If you want to withdraw an amount between GHS 50 and GHS 1000, you will be charged 1% of the amount. For instance, if you want to withdraw GHS 400, you need to find 1% of GHS 400 ((1/100)*GHS 400) which is GHS 4. The simple way to calculate is to multiply the amount by 0.01, so 0.01*400 is 4.
  • Finally, for any amount more than GHS 1000, the withdrawal fee is GHS 10. This is also fixed, so if you want to withdraw GHS2500, you will be charged GHS 10 as a withdrawal fee.
