How To Pay For Netflix In Kenya Using Mpesa. Netflix is one of the fastest-growing video streaming platforms in Kenya and other parts of the world. Over the past few years, its viewership in the country has been rising steadily, thanks to the availability of cheap internet services. Also, the streaming service has been offering its Kenyan users affordable packages worth trying. However, many of its users have been having a challenge paying for its services due to the unavailability of a direct payment mode. Are you among the people who have been struggling to know how to pay for Netflix services?
There is no direct mode of payment using Mpesa (Lipa na Mpesa). That’s why you have to use your PayPal account.

This has been fuelled by access to fast and affordable Internet across the continent. Given the subscription numbers in Kenya, it will probably only be a matter of time before Netflix considers adding MPESA as a payment option for their services in the region.
