Making Money in Kenya through Affiliate Programs

If you’ve got a good presence on social media or perhaps you even have a blog or website, you can start bringing in money immediately by promoting all sorts of companies, products, services and offers online. In fact,  Affiliate programs and networks are so far the most popular methods of making money online among many affiliates. The sign up process is as easy and one could scoop a fortune out of these affiliate programs.

However, most of the affiliate programs that are very popular worldwide are based in the western countries most commonly in the US. Majority of the time, many Kenyan affiliates find it hard to have a healthy working relationship with some of these affiliate programs especially because of their payment terms and methods.

The following list combines affiliate programs that are based and operate by Kenyan websites and pay through options that are conversant with the Kenyan affiliate community.

1. Jumia

JUMIA is a Nigerian based online market place founded in 2012 by Jeremy Hodara and Sacha Poignonnec and as of 2015, it had spread its warehouses in eight countries- Nigeria, Kenya, Ivory Coast, Egypt, Morocco, Ghana, Uganda and Cameroon.
