How we keep it cheap


We got rid of the middlemen that drive up the cost of money transfers: the banks and the agents. With Makeba you send money from your phone directly to your recipients phone - making transfers faster and cheaper.







"Transfer" refers to funds being sent from one Makeba account to another. If the monthly allowance is reached a 0.25% fee will be applied. Sales tax will be added to subscription fees.
