According to the January 2024 Summary of Economic and Financial Data by the Bank of Ghana, total mobile money transactions hit GH¢1.912 trillion last year.

This is compared with GH¢1.07 trillion in 2022.

In the first 10 months of 2023, the total Mobile Money transactions had reached a record GH¢1.527 trillion.

The figures from the Bank of Ghana showed that December 2023 recorded the biggest mobile money transaction value of GH¢199.3 billion.

The data also revealed that total mobile money transactions surged consistently from January 2023 to December 2023. All the 12 months recorded more than GH¢100 billion respectively.

In January 2023, the value of mobile money transactions stood at GH¢130.1 billion, compared with GH¢76.2 billion during the same period in 2022.

It surged to GH¢134.0 billion in February 2023 (February 2022: GH¢76.5 billion) and subsequently to GH¢147.5 billion in March 2023 (March 2022: GH¢90.5 billion).

It then surged to GH¢185.9 billion in November 2024.

Despite the impressive performance of mobile money, it is unclear whether the government is meeting the Electronic Transfer Levy (E-Levy) target for 2023.

The current E-levy rate is 1.0%.
