Registration requires a mobile money compatible SIM. If your SIM is not mobile money compatible, you can buy one from the agent. The agent can also do a SIM swap for you if you want to retain your old number. You will need to fill-in some documentation to complete your MTN mobile money registration.

To fund your mobile money account you need to buy and load an MTN mobile money scratch card. Note that this is different from the normal recharge card for telecoms services. The scratch cards will be available at all mobile money agent locations, GTBank branches, and MTN centres. Mobile money transactions are protected by a 4-digit PIN. The PIN will be required to authorise all your mobile money transactions. So, you must/should keep it safe.
