MTN shortcodes are one of the most useful tips for quickly performing transactions on the mobile network.
MTN Ghana is the leading telecommunication company in Ghana. It is more than a communication network; it is a life-enriching network that offers a wide range of services to Ghanaians. In 2022, MTN has rebranded as a Technology company focusing on leveraging digital technologies.
Like me, I know others sometimes forget some basic shortcodes to perform some actions due to the influx of apps that make it easy to load and buy airtime, etc. I remember on several occasions, I had to ask someone for the code to reload airtime because I mostly buy airtime using fintech apps on my phone.
For this reason, I have compiled this list of MTN shortcodes for Ghana and will constantly update it.
