Paying to a M-Tala Account in Samoa

We have partnered with the Vodafone M-Tala network to make fast, cost-effective transfers to Samoa M-Tala accounts from Australia and New Zealand. Sending to an M-Tala account is easy, all you need is the name and phone number of the M-Tala account you are transferring to. This is how it works:

  1. Login to your OrbitRemit account and select WST as the receiving currency from the calculator and the amount you wish to send
  2. Click New Recipient and select Mobile Money Transfer
  3. Enter your recipient's name and M-Tala account phone number
  4. Select the reason for your transfer
  5. Pay for your transfer


Is there anything my recipient needs to do to receive my transfer?

Your recipient M-Tala account needs to be activated to receive your transfer. This process is quick and easy which can be done through the M-Tala app or by calling customer service with a Vodafone phone in Samoa.
