Affiliate programs and networks are so far the affiliate marketing programs in kenya popular methods of making money online among many affiliates. The sign up process is as easy as scratching the back of your ear and if you are serious you could scoop a fortune out of these affiliate programs. So most of the times, 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.
Some of these programs are not even allowed in Kenya. This is the reason why I had to combine a list of affiliate programs that are based and operate by Kenyan websites and pay through options that are conversant with the Kenyan affiliate community. This does not however mean that these sites operate only in Kenya, most of them have worldwide affiliates. The good news as we will see, is that most of these sites pay through M-pesa which is very popular among Kenyans.
I did not however link these sites to the affiliate sign up pages but they won’t be hard to notice. Just make sure you have a good look around.

You can promote their products using API, banners or white label. They are said to have the best customer support and can provide you with some of the affiliate tools for your promotion. I got a feeling that many travel companies are really into this affiliate thing. May be they have realized its importance after all.
