Netflix, the streaming service, has been available in Kenya for a while now. Its popularity is still high, given that it offers a wide variety of award-winning content.

How To Pay For Netflix In Kenya Via M-PESA

Previously, it has not been possible to pay for Netflix via M-PESA directly. The only available option was credit/debit card, or linking your M-PESA to a PayPal account.

Now, a new partnership between M-PESA and Visa has made the process a lot easier. They have introduced an Mpesa Global Pay option, where you can get your Virtual Card and use it to pay Netflix.

Here is how to activate the card.

M-PESA APP:
  • Log in to your M-PESA
  • Select Pay tab
  • Select the GlobalPay and Opt In.
  • Select your card
  • Enter PIN
  • You will receive an SMS with the card number and expiry date.

Alternatively:

  • Select the Grow
  • Select the GlobalPay tab to Opt In
  • Select your card
  • Enter PIN
  • You will receive an SMS with the card number and expiry

M-PESA USSD (*334#):

  • Dial *334#
  • Select Lipa na M-PESA (Option 6)
  • Select M-PESA GlobalPay (Option 5)

Now head over to Netflix and use the card to pay!
