According to MTN, all Mobile Money(MOMO) Merchants are to request valid identification cards before completing a transaction.
The valid IDs to be accepted for this new development are, Ghana card, driving license, passport, Voter’s ID, Social Security And National Insurance Trust(SSNIT) ID, National Health Insurance Scheme(NHIS) Card.
Explaining how the ID will be used, MTN explained: “when an agent is performing a cash-out for a subscriber, the agent is required to select the ID type and enter the ID number of the ID card the subscriber provides.”
This means that without the card, one would not be able to complete the process to either cash-out or deposit money.
