The surveys in Pinfox are in the form of questions. You earn 10 Bob per correctly answered question. Since there are ten questions, the potential earnings are Kshs 100, about $1.

Before you get excited, the surveys are merely a marketing technique to lure you into becoming a member. So, they will barely pay you without referrals.

I am always advocating for free legitimate market research survey sites that pay you for your opinion, where there’s no wrong or correct answer. A good example, being which pays people across the world $1 per complete survey.

PTC Ads is allows users to get paid to click on ads. The website is still in beta, but users can already earn money by viewing and clicking on ads.

To start earning, simply create an account and log in. Then, you’ll be presented with a list of available ads. Click on an ad to view it, and then click the “Confirm” button to earn money.

Watching Videos

The pay for watching a ten seconds YouTube video is apparently 10 Kenyan Shillings. This is what is indicated in the Pinfox summary.

Honestly, I wouldn’t spend much time on this, given the history of similar programs like Workpesa. Yes, those who joined wasted their data bundles subscribing to YouTube channels and watching videos without any payout.

Another factor is that the YouTube earnings are withdrawn independently; even worse, there are not enough videos to earn a significant amount.

Whatsapp Earnings

If you’re looking for a quick way to make money, may seem like a great option. You can get paid for simply viewing WhatsApp messages on the site. However, you should be aware that is not a trusted source of income. whatsapp earnings

Spin wheels are almost in each online platform, especially the pyramidal scheme. It has been used as bait since last year by the infamous Smarthela agencies.

You can read our previous reviews to comprehend how spinning is used as a marketing strategy to get more referrals.

Is it a Scam?

The correct answer is it depends on you. If you’re used to joining the referral programs and pyramidal schemes, Pinfox Kenya may be suitable for you.

The low joining fee means that you’re risking much less compared to Pataqash Technologies. On the other hand, referral commissions on are relatively low.

The site hasn’t revealed any legal documents to prove its legitimacy. The owners or founders are also not known. All these red flags signal the potentiality of Pinfox being a scam.

As for withdrawal proofs, we have seen some cashouts via Mpesa, which probably signals that the site is paying. You’d have to experience it to confirm.

The bottom line of this Pinfox Kenya review is that it’s suitable for people willing to network. Without recruiting others, you’ll be wasting your money.

I don’t recommend the site to our readers as it’s not an online job that pays via Mpesa where everyone can benefit. There will be more losers than profiteers due to the pyramidal structure.

If you must join, ensure you understand the working model of to be on the safe side. You may also like: How to start a blog in Kenya and make money
