HOW TO WITHDRAW PAYPAL MONEY IN KENYA
The issue of how to withdraw money from PayPal in Kenya has been a thorn in the side for many years. However, things are looking up as more companies offering ways of withdrawing PayPal money in Kenya are coming up each day. The following is an minor overview of some of this companies, a more detailed overview focusing on each individual company and my experiences will them will come upsoon
This is perhaps one of the oldest companies offering PayPal withdrawal in Kenya. Everything seemed to be going on well with Epay-Kenya until a few weeks ago when they suddenly stopped offering PayPal withdrawals. According to an email sent by their customer care support, they had been experiencing problems with their gateway partner 2checkout in terms of the fees they were being charged and had to suspend PayPal withdrawals in Kenya as they look for a better alternative.
In late January they stated that they were in the process of looking for a better gateway partner before re-introducing PayPal withdrawals in Kenya as part of their services. However, they are currently making withdrawals for some select individuals on an ‘invitation only’ basis. Whatever this means i do not know but over the last few weeks, their customer care has really deteriorated with support tickets taking days to be answered. Lets just hope they recover from whatever they are going through since they were one of the most reliable paypal withdrawal companies in kenya
Pesagram is another company that offers PayPal withdrawals in Kenya. This company serves both individuals in Kenya and in the diaspora. You first have to sign up for an account with Pesagram before withdrawing any amount from PayPal. The withdrawals are normally made by purchasing m-pesa vouchers with a fixed amount from their site and then making a payment.
However, their site has a minor drawback, the withdrawal vouchers only allow an individual to make fixed withdrawals. For instance, withdrawing something like 6900 is not possible and the only way would be to withdraw an amount closer to 6900( that would be 6500) You would have to buy vouchers worth 5000+1000+500, so as to get 6500
All in all withdrawing PayPal money through Pesagram is cheaper when compared to Epay-kenya. This company is also legit and has a fast delivery time, you get your money in less than 20 minutes. The withdrawal procedure is also less cumbersome when compared to Epay-kenya withdrawal
Kenya is another viable alternative when it comes to companies that withdraw from PayPal in Kenya. Kenya rates are somehow cheaper and an individual has the advantage of withdrawing any amount of money: an advantage over Pesagram.
however, Kenyapesa have one major disadvantage, their delivery time is slightly longer when compared to other PayPal withdrawal companies in Kenya.I actually have had some experience with this company, i made a withdrawal at around 2PM afternoon and received the money at 11PM, a 9 hour wait.
The customer support page on their website is also malfunctioning and they are using their Facebook page for customer support.
Kenyapesa is a legit way of withdrawing PayPal money in Kenya. However, they need to improve their customer care and delivery time if they wish to compete with other companies offering similar services
Glo-money is another company offering PayPal withdrawal in Kenya. the customer has a superb professional website and live chat customer care support:the best so far customer care support so far.
Was planning on doing a test withdrawal for my blog but was unable to make any withdrawal as the sign-up form on their website generates some sort of error when you complete the sign-up process. Will contact their customer support tomorrow and see how it goes
however, have not heard of anyone who has made a withdrwal through this site and would advise anyone making a withdrawal through glo-money to try it out with a small amount before making any major withdrawal. I will post a review of their services and legitimacy on this blog after trying out their services tommorow
Crowdsource is another PayPal withdrawal alternative in Kenya. According to their site, they are an outsourcing company and there is no evidence of PayPal withdrawals in their list of services.Will try and find out more about their services and update you
If you have had any experience with this companies or any other company withdrawing PayPal money in Kenya, we would love to hear about your experience
