    I’ve tried to withdraw via mpesa but it’s not available as a withdrawal method

      Hello Francis,
      What method have you used when you made a deposit to IQ Option? You have to use the same deposit and withdrawal method. That means if you haven’t used M-Pesa for your deposit, you will not be able to withdraw via Mpesa.

      Hello Philip,
      I believe M-Pesa deposits should be nearly instant, how long has it been since you processed your payment? If it does not appear in your account by the end of the day, please contact the IQ Option customer support to resolve this!

      Hello Dennis,
      That is odd if you made a deposit via M-Pesa then this payment method should also work as a withdrawal method. Please try to reach out to the IQ Option customer support via live chat to resolve this ASAP.

      Kind regards,

    I didn’t find the Mpesa option on my app..and I had initially used Mpesa to Deposit funds..The support team was unable to help..so what should I now use

    • Michael

      Hello Alice,
      That is odd, I would expect their support team would help you with this. You can try to use another withdrawal method or e-mail them at [email protected], I believe if you reach out to them via e-mail they will send your issue to someone competent to resolve this.

    Hello @Michael, I`m from Kenya and i have tried to deposit money via Mpesa but there is no such option

    • Michael

      Hello Justus,
      That is odd, M-Pesa should be available, especially in Kenya. I will ask the customer support what’s going on.

      • Michael

        I have some bad news, I just talked with the IQ Option customer support and I was told that M-Pesa is not available in Kenya at the moment. Unfortunately, as of now, they don’t know when it will be available again.

        Hi Michael, i succesfully deposited through MPesa around 9th November,2020. Unfortunately it did not reflect on the IQ Option account. The mobile money provider(Safaricom ltd) confirmed transaction went through. I cant trace the money. I contacted customer support no response.

      Hello John,
      If IQ Option supports this deposit method in your country you should see it in the deposit tab on the IQ Option platform.

    Hello Michael,
    Thank you for the reply support and amazing content that you are giving us.
    All i wanted to ask is for you to elaborate this:
    “84% of retail CFD accounts lose money.”

    • Michael

      Hello Kiruga,
      Thank you for your support and your kind words :). That means 84% of retail clients who trade with IQ Option lose money, that leaves you with 16% who are in profit.

    • Michael

      Hello David,
      It seems like IQ Option is having some issues with M-Pesa deposits and withdrawals tho I hoped they had been fixed as one of our readers commented here in January that they can already access IQ Option M-Pesa. Please reach out to IQ Option customer support to see if they will work anytime soon.
