As OBA Books is an Kenyan online store, all prices are listed in Kenya Shillings.

If you are paying with Mobile Money (i.e. Mpesa), Visa, Mastercard and American Express etc, PesaPal will convert the cost to Kenya Shillings on your behalf.

Mpesa is an indigenous Kenyan mobile money platform tat is widely used in Kenya. Its is easy and convenient for Kenyans to transact using Mpesa and that is why we recommend it for our Kenyan customers. You can make orders directly to via our Paybil number 910200. When you are ready to order, contact us and we will send you our Mpesa-bank details. For details, go to Ordering Using Mpesa.

When you place an order with us PayPal will create a pre-authorization which reserves funds until we finalise payment. Sometimes this can look like two different amounts on your bank statement but rest assured we have only charged you once for your order.

You can confirm this by logging on to your PayPal account at

Bank Transfer/Cheque/Money Order
You can pay using either of these three options by selecting Other Payment Methods on the final page of checkout. You will be guided through the process on-screen.
