Both of the two biggest Mobile Network Operators in Kenya Safaricom and Airtel have since opened up pre-orders for the world’s newest sensation in the mobile phone sector. Safaricom opened up their pre-orders on Monday while Airtel pre-orders started yesterday. Each one of them have a juicy deal in their own way. Airtel is the cheaper guy here with ability for one to save upto 12,000 while Safaricom made theirs flexible. FYI, the Galaxy S 4 will be back to Kshs 65,000 once the pre-orders are over, and stock in other open market outlets will be available by 2nd of May when the Galaxy S 4 will be launching in Kenya.
Now Airtel model of payments is either walk in to one of the 9 shops they have set as pick up points for the Galaxy S 4 or pay online via Pesapal. The Pesapal model is where you can actually pay via Mpesa.
The payments page doesn’t have Mpesa available as a direct option as is usually the case, but when you select the pesapal e-wallet, you will actually be able to pay via Mpesa since the e-wallet can be loaded from either your card or mobile money. Now whichever model you choose is upon you. But there you have it, you can make the Galaxy S 4 pre-order from Airtel via Mpesa.
