Sponsored Data Solution

Yes, the solution works for both apps and websites. However, for the solution to work as intended, both apps and websites should not have embedded links.

These are links to content that is not hosted on the Businessʼ actual online resource – Website, App or IP address.

The business would have to undertake notification to its end user customers upon clicking on such a link, that they are navigating off the free sponsored online resource.

To ensure minimal exposure to risk, we require both the online resource IP address and the URL for the service to be provisioned.

No. The business's IP address must be static to ensure that the end user customers are not charged for dynamic content while on the sponsored website /app.

No. However, a conditional monthly access fee (or minimum spend amount) of KES 50,000 (including VAT and Excise duty) shall be applied for the service.

Upon receipt of all relevant documentation, technical configurations take 10 working days.
