Online Paid Surveys In Kenya.

 paid online surveys Kenya

One of the most advocated ways of making money online is by filling online surveys. If you would also like to try, then there are many online surveys out there you can choose from.
However, many of these survey sites especially the highest paying ones don't accept African panelists and  mostly focus on the developed countries.
To save you the frustration of having to always be turned down by such sites I have compiled a list of Legit paid online survey sites in Kenya that pay you as a Kenyan in exchange of your views and opinions about various topics and products.
What to look for when choosing a survey site.
Many online survey sites are coming up on a daily basis and some change their policies and terms quite often. For example, ipoll used to accept Kenyans but now it doesn't accept members outside Canada, US and UK.
As much as I will always try to bring you up to date about online matters, I might not be able to cover all and hence I feel it is important I just give you some guidelines to look for in a survey site before you sign up for. These are:
  • First check the legitimacy of the site. We will cover this in another post but look for the duration the site has been in operation, sign up requirements, amount per survey and online reviews about the said survey site.
  • Look at the payment options. There are various reward options that various survey sites reward it's panelist. These include gift vouchers, G-codes, cash rewards, invitation for various draws and so on. Since I believe you want to fill surveys for cash, look for those that pay cash and check the withdrawal options e.g if they accept payment platforms such as PayPal, Mpesa, Skrill and so on.
  • Check on the minimum withdrawal limit. Many online survey sites pay between $0.3 and $5.0 but most that target African respondents don't go beyond $1.5 per survey. If the withdrawal limit is too high,( in this case more than USD.15.0) it might take you eternity to withdraw your money since the survey frequency is quite low.

Paid Online surveys for Kenyans.
If you would like to make some small cash online filling out surveys below are the best Survey sites you can start with.
Note: I have written full reviews about the survey sites in different articles if you would like to know more about a specific site click on the links.

Triaba Kenya.
This is part of Triaba, an international survey site that accepts panelists almost all over the world.
Triaba surveys come from CINT, an international research firm. Most of these will earn you between $0.3 to $1.5.
The only disadvantage with this site is it's low survey frequency and the fact that it doesn't allow cash withdrawals for Kenyans. Many think that this site pay real cash since that is what they say on their about page. It is only until you become a member when you realise that the cash withdrawal option is not yet available in the country.

Afrisight Survey.
This is the only surveys site that accepts respondents from Africa only. Afrisight accepts members from Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Tanzania, Ethiopia, South Africa, Namibia, Rwanda and Egypt.
This site however has a very low survey frequency.

Mobrog Survey.
Mobrog is the leader in Kenyan online survey space with so many advantages over other survey sites. Its advantages include:
  • High survey frequency. Of all the survey sites I have researched and tried Mobrog is the leading in terms of surveys with an average of at least one survey per month. This could be higher depending on your profile.
  • It pays real cash. You must have come across some misleading headings like 'Survey sites that pay you through mpesa'and such like. Well, the only survey site I came across that promised to pay through Mpesa seems to have collapsed.(if it's still active kindly let me know). Mobrog pays you real cash for your hard work and is the only one I have come across that allows both PayPal and Skrill withdrawals. 
  • It has one of the best Best Referral Programs allowing you to both earn while filling surveys and by reffering friends and family.
This is one of the oldest survey sites being operational since 1999. It accepts panelists from almost all over the world without bias or discrimination and I think that is a big plus for them.
The many complaints about this site however makes it not ideal. What makes this site even controversial is because of it's app known as savvy connect which pays you $5.0 every month for just downloading and having it in your phone. This looks promising but when you check the amount of personal information this app will collect from your phone it's not worth it.

Switchedon Africa.
This is another African focused survey sites with interests in South Africa, Kenya and Nigeria.
The only disadvantage with this survey site is that they don't pay you for surveys answered. Instead they use draws to determine the winner who will be rewarded.
