Ghana introduced an electronic transaction levy (E-Levy) on digital financial transactions in May 2022, following many other countries in Africa. Our paper looks at the impact of the E-Levy on mobile money usage and user perceptions. We use data from the Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications (GCT) on usage of several mobile money services (sending, receiving, payments, and withdrawals), and nationally representative survey data collected by the ICTD on individuals and businesses.
