Hey guys,

I released PesaWise a few days ago. The app allows you to calculate and compare transaction charges from several Kenyan services.

  1. Mobile Banking
    ▸ M-PESA Transfers, Withdrawals & Agent Commissions.
    ▸ Airtel Money.
    ▸ Telkom Kash. (T-Kash)

  2. Equity Bank/Eazzy Banking
    ▸ Equity to M-PESA.
    ▸ Cash Withdrawals.
    ▸ PayPal to Equity Account (Exchange Rate is updated daily)

  3. PesaLink
    ▸ Kenya Commercial Bank. (KCB)
    ▸ Equity Bank.
    ▸ Co-operative Bank. (Co-op)
    ▸ Stanbic Bank.
    ▸ Standard Chartered.
    ▸ Bank Of Africa. (BOA)
    ▸ Diamond Trust Bank. (DTB)

  4. Other services
    ▸ Treasury Bills (Average Interest Rates are updated after every auction)

This is just the first version and I intend to improve it and add new services over time.

Monetization

The app contains ads. There is a banner ad that appears at the bottom of each page. There is also an interstitial ad (Full-page ad) that appears after every 2.5 minutes when navigating to the menu.

The full-page ad will NEVER appear ukifanya hesabu yako.

Anything specific?

Your Treasury Bills calculator is not yet complete. Compare with what’s on the CBK website.

Quick review:

App is defaulting on Mpesa, like others are not equal principals within Nasa.
I think it should be easy to pick out the options at app load. I didn’t see the menu till I hit back button on the phone.

Great work! It’s good to know a solution exists to help know the fees involved for each option.


#7

I think everything is there. Some fields have been renamed though.

Maybe you are looking at the Treasury Bonds page instead of the Treasury Bills one?

:joy::joy::joy:

As soon as I know how to do this, I will add it.

Hey guys,

Just a quick update.

There is now a PesaWise website.

Link - https://pesawise.co.ke/

We are aware bundles and load speeds are a big deal so we optimized the site greatly.

Initial download size is around 990 Kb. All subsequent loads are 7-10 Kb.

All major mobile and desktop browsers should work just fine with a few exceptions:

  • Opera Mini with extreme mode activated breaks the site.
  • UC Mini with speed mode activated breaks the site.

As for the app, we will be unpublishing it soon. We would like to make the site a complete progressive web app (PWA).

Hey @Trey, is there a way you can create an alert for exchange rate on paypal to equity? am currently checking their self-service portal every now and then to see if they have reached at least 98…:grin::grin: so that I can withdraw some money…

Adding that to the site would require user accounts to prevent abuse. I really do not want to handle any personal information.

I can setup a cron job that sends you the rates every 12 hours to your email.

PHP is foreign to me. I don’t know how to check if the rate is >=98 or send out a nice looking email. :blush:
