To activate your mobile checkout, 

  1. Fill the LNM form  (ensure you fill the form electronically, don't handwrite it) 

  2. Email it to API Support <>

  3. Go to Safaricom developer portal (aka Daraja) and, log in

  4. If you do not have an account on Daraja, create one. You will be required to create a new account with a different set of credentials separate from those of the Mpesa portal.

  5. Once you manage to log in to Daraja, get Consumer and Secret keys through the Go Live Process ( and not from My Apps). There is a guide on how to do that from Get Started, you can as well use Safaricom Live Chat for assistance or email: for any queries.

NB: In the Go Live process, download the test cases and upload them back as empty

Once your live app is approved, you will get an app name, a consumer key and secret key.  Example:

App name: Prod-said-food-service-182311445                  
Consumer key: APACXgIjeAyH0DcnFsKdxyA5tjPPTTIF
Secret key: PjujseRPvbZGXsTwm

That is what you will share with us
