Online writing jobs in Kenya that pay through MPESA daily, weekly, or monthly

Are you searching for legit online writing jobs in Kenya that pay through mpesa?

We, of course, work to earn cash, and when it just takes seconds to get paid- MPESA is really fast- and not weeks (there were times guys had to wait for days for their PayPal payments to clear), making money writing sound so exciting, doesn’t it?

Personally I have been an online writer for the past few years and I have tried out most of the online writing jobs in Kenya that pay through MPESA- payment can be daily, weekly, or monthly depending on your agreement with the employer/client.

Here they are in case you want to try your luck too:


Online writing jobs in Kenya that pay through MPESA daily, weekly, or monthly

Now, before we start, there are two issues I should highlight:

  1. Jobs that pay via PayPal are also considered to be paying through MPESA since you can withdraw your PayPal deposits to MPESA directly.
  2. The other category of online writing jobs in Kenya that pay through mpesa are offered by local employers – people who own websites or other Kenyan writers who outsource to fellow writers when swamped with work.

In addition, there are two types of online writing jobs you can do- writing articles (you write blogs and other content for websites) or academic writing (you mainly handle academic works such as completing essays, assignments, term papers, projects, etc. for students in high school and higher education institutions).

Having clarified that, here is the list of jobs you can target (in both article and academic writing):


10 Online academic writing jobs in Kenya that pay through MPESA

Keep in mind that some of the above platforms have certain restrictions and you may be unable to create an account (where applicable)/register until you comply.

The other crucial thing is skills- you may not go far if you lack appropriate skills.
