Tips:

  • Ethio telecom will apply transaction controls on free ranges to ensure healthy telebirr transactions.
  • Transaction limits should be configurable.
  • * Customers are allowed to make a maximum of two free transactions per day per recipient OR per agent (for amount lower than or equal to Birr 50).
    • E.g. If a customer A transferred amount less than or equal to Birr 50 to customer B twice a day (the same initiator and recipient). When customer A attempts to send another amount less than or equal to Birr  50, s/he will get the below notification:
    • “Dear customer you have reached the maximum allowed daily free transaction limit. Please try amount greater than Birr 50.
    • Applicable for both self and OTC (via agent) transactions.
    • Applicable only when both the sender /initiator and recipient are similar.
