|Update: As per all the comments in the discussion under this article, we must notify you that IQ Option no longer supports withdrawals via M-Pesa. If you are looking for a broker that does support both deposits and withdrawals, you can check out Exness.com

IQ Option supports in some countries a popular mobile money payment system called M-Pesa. Despite the fact that this funding method is particularly popular in Kenya, traders from other African countries as well as from Romania, Albania and India and a couple of other countries use it too. In this article, you are going to find out how to make a deposit and withdrawal on the IQ Option platform when using MPesa.
Does IQ Option accept M-Pesa?
Yes, IQ Option accepts M-Pesa for deposits and withdrawals. In order to make a deposit via this mobile money system, you have to open an IQ Option free account. Once you do that, you can follow the simple guide below this paragraph. The minimum IQ Option deposit amount when using M-Pesa is 10 USD and the minimum withdrawal amount is 2 USD. If your M-Pesa account is in Kenyan shilling or other currency, your deposit will be converted to USD.
How to make a deposit on the IQ Option platform when using M-Pesa?
Here is a simple guide on how you can make a deposit when using M-Pesa.
1#STEP, login to your IQ Option account, or create a new one for free (Risk warning: your capital might be at risk)
2#STEP, Click in the top right corner on the Deposit button
3# Step, select the right option “Top up your account”
4# Step, from all the available deposit methods, choose Mpesa, select the amount you want to deposit to IQ Option and click continue.
5# Step, you will be redirected to a secure payment gateway where you have to fill in your name and your MPESA phone number (the Safaricom number).
6# Step, if you clicked the submit button a pop-up window will show on your mobile phone where you verify the transaction. Once you have done that, wait for a couple of seconds and your funds will be loaded into your IQ Option account.
How to make a withdrawal when using M-Pesa?
The instructions on how to withdraw money from IQ Option when using MPesa are pretty much the same as when making a deposit. Instead of clicking on the deposit button, click on the withdraw button when you are logged in to your real account.
Are there any fees for M-Pesa deposits and withdrawals?
According to the IQ Option official website, the broker does not charge any deposit or withdrawal fees (with the exception of wire transfer). It, therefore, means, that there are no deposit or withdrawal fees when using M-Pesa. Please note, that despite the fact IQ Option does not charge any deposit or withdrawal fees, M-Pesa might.
Risk warning: your capital might be at risk
I’ve tried to withdraw via mpesa but it’s not available as a withdrawal method
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.
How are you? Testing comments on our web? 😀
is this iq option 100% profitable
What do you mean by “if it’s 100% profitable?”. The broker is not some magical tool to make you money without hard work.
have u tried olymp trade? I would appreciate reviews about it
Hi Dave, no never.
Provide an mpesa withdrawal option, trying the reversal way of depositing via mpesa completely doesn’t work.
IQ Option supports M-Pesa only in selected countries (like Kenya). Where are you based?
the withdrawal option by mpesa is not there and I deposited with the mpesa
Hi, i deposited my money via mpesa buh wen withdrawing there is no option for mpesa
That is really odd, have you tried contacting IQ Option customer support?
I have depsoited using mpesa but it is not reflecting in the IQ account
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!
I can’t withdraw using mpesa … there’s no mpesa option in withdrawal!! What is this ??♂️
And were you able to deposit via M-pesa? Because if this deposit option was not available then, it will also not available when you try to withdraw your money.
I can not see withdrawal option for mpesa please help
I deposited money via mpesa but there rise ni withdrawal option via mpesa please help
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.
Hi, it is not odd. What the guy is saying is the truth. You can clearly deposit with M-Pesa but when you try to withdraw, the M-Pesa option is not there! It’s really puzzling. I wonder what the intention of IQ option was.
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
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.
There is no M-pesa in deposit and withdrawal
Where do you live? M-Pesa is at IQ Option not available in all countries.
Hello @Michael, I`m from Kenya and i have tried to deposit money via Mpesa but there is no such option
That is odd, M-Pesa should be available, especially in Kenya. I will ask the customer support what’s going on.
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.
That’s odd, when did you contact the IQ Option customer support, also around the 9th of November?
Hi am John from Kenya have tried over 10times withdrawal of money via mpesa and all i receive is that the withdrawal has being cancelled
Hi, as mentioned in the article, for withdrawals you need to select a different withdrawal method.
That`s so sad… thanks for your feedback Michael.
If I have any news regarding this, I will update you in the comments. You are welcome 🙂
how can i deposite through mobile money in tanzania ?
If IQ Option supports this deposit method in your country you should see it in the deposit tab on the IQ Option platform.
I paid to iq option via mpesa and the mpesa withdrawal option is not available
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.”
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.
hi I can access the mpesa deposit option
That’s good news, thank you for the update for other visitors!
cant find any mpesa option for deposit.I can only see the other options eg skrill,netler,perfect money ,visa card etc but no mpesa option
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.
How to verify account when I need to deposit money
To verify your account you need to verify your identity, here is a guide on how to go about that – https://tradingbeasts.com/iq-option-review/#Account_verification
It’s like the mpesa option is unavailable. I really want to deposit and start trading…please help.I’m in Kenya
I am seeing people troubled and their issues unresolved. Is this a warning sign?
It seems like IQ Option paused accepting M-Pesa for deposit and withdrawal methods (As you can see from the comments here). However, they still support other payment methods such as credit/debit cards, wire transfers and e-wallet payments.
i cant see the mpesa icon when i want to deposit.
mpesa seems to be back.. I just saw it… has anyone tried depositing with mpesa. it will be great an answer from you Michael to confirm if it’s working OK… now
Thank you for your comment, that would be awesome. I myself don’t have mpesa as I live in Europe so I can’t test it, but our African users will be definitely happy about this. Should you have any more updates about this, please keep us posted! Thanks :).
Mpesa is back to iqoption
Can Michael confirm if really mpesa can be used for withdrawal
I am sorry, but I can’t confirm that, you have to ask directly IQ Option.
Well….i was waiting for the withdrawal illustration……..im happy i landed this page,made me rethink if i will deposit wit mpesa or with iq …
i cannot find the MPESA option or the Skrill option on my app for deposit
Hi. I am trying to deposit via M-Pesa but it keeps saying the number is invalid. Is the M-Pesa option working? I really want to start trading.
Regarding this issue, you will have to ask directly the broker – IQ Option. I believe they will be able to assist you with this matter.
It so sad that from yesterday 10th October 2022the m -pesa is out of service I really want to trade I already deposited,it is really annoying no m -pesa service am from kenya
I deposited using M-PESA but the withdrawal using M-PESA is not available.
Will it be available in the days to come?
Try contracting IQ Option directly, because we do not know if it will.
I deposited via mpesa, why can’t I withdraw via mpesa
IQ Option seemed to stop supporting M-Pesa as the withdrawal method. That is also why I made the new warning at the top of this page. But you are free to use any other withdrawal method they offer.
am from Kenya and I can see mpesa deposit option,but my worry is,when I will be doing withdrawal will they accept it, I want to deposit via mpesa
It’s best to verify directly with IQ Option if its going to be possible to also withdraw via M-Pesa or if you are going to have to choose a different withdrawal method.
Deposit is so first with mpesa but withdrawal takes time why?
Is your identity verified? If not, it might be causing delays in your withdrawal requests.
I deposited money with mpesa but the withdrawal option via mpesa is not there. what can i do
You can use a different withdrawal method in that case.
Thank you very much for the information… one question though, how long does it take to have the money reflect on my mpesa account after withdrawal
You are welcome. I think it should be within the same day, but please verify this directly with IQ Option.
i ama able to deposit through mpesa but i cant make my withrawls why
IQ Option does not seem to be supporting withdrawals via Mpesa, that’s also why we put the warning at the beginning of this article. Feel free to use a different withdrawal method.
can one be verified without these bank cards
What do you mean by this? You don’t have to use bank cards at all, you can choose a different payment method.
Hello Michael I deposited to iq through mpesa but I have tried to withdraw through mpesa but the mpesa option is not available on my withdrawal page, how do I withdraw?
