Retail Code

Retail Code is a solution that enables subscribers purchase electronic airtime without disclosing their phone numbers.

How It Works

Retail Code operates on a unique USSD code *878# with the following steps:

  • You walk up to a Retailer and ask for his 6-digit Retailer Code, then dial *878* Retailer Code*Amount# Example – *878*126478*500#
  • A token is generated.
  • Share the token with the Retailer, who uses the token to complete the transaction (after payment has been made)

Retail Code is available to All MTN subscribers.
