The internet has made it very easy for psychics to expand their business and perform readings online and the market is full of online psychic services of all kinds. Some are scams, other claim to be the real deal and have a huge and loyal client base.

Keen overview

Keen is on the market since 1999. Its longevity has only helped with its reputation and trustworthiness.

Keen offers a wide range of psychic readings, from astrology to Tarot, numerology, dream interpretation, pet communication and others.

Features

The website of this service is not the most comprehensive and well organized we’ve seen. It is however clean and quite easy to browse. There are 6 search filters you can apply: psychic readings, love and relationship, life questions, Tarot readings, spiritual readings, psychic mediums. While it may look a bit simplistic, the website is also very user-friendly.

Keen’s psychics have their own profiles where you can find a short bio, pictures, their pricing, their background and most importantly, ratings and reviews, which can be pretty useful in your screening process. Psychics are rated with stars from 1 to 5 and there are comments from users who interacted with them.

How to get a reading

In order to get a reading you have to register online and you have to be at least 18 years old to be able to use the service. Keen requires only your e-mail and a password, so you don’t have to give them your full name. This way, you can preserve your privacy and anonymity. Keen also uses SSL encryption and ensures it doesn’t share your payment details.

Once you are registered, you can start browsing for a psychic and once you found one you like, you can contact them via live chat or phone. Not all psychics are available when you contact them but you can request for them to call you back at a specific time, at your choice. You can schedule readings whenever it is good for you and since this company offers 24/7 services, you’ll most likely be able to find someone at any time.

Keen also has a mobile app that is compatible with iOS and Android devices, so you can access their services via your smartphone.

How much does it cost?   

Keen doesn’t have a fixed rate, because not all psychics have the same level of experience, reputation and quotes. Keen does offer the first 3 minutes for free, regardless of the psychic you are using. Keen has psychics who charge you as low as $1.99/minute and prices can go as high as $29.99/minute, for their top-rated psychics.

Kasamba overview

Kasamba is another psychic service with experience and was also founded in 1999. There are also similarities with Keen regarding their network of psychics: Kasamba has around 2,000 psychics, just like Keen.

A notable difference however between the two is the reputation of the psychics, with Kasamba having more famous readers than Keen. A lot of them have had TV appearances and a lot of exposure in the media.

Features

The website of Kasamba looks a bit better than Keen’s. It is more organized, complex and more transparent. There are more categories available for you to choose from: psychic readings, tarot readings, love and relationships, dream analysis, astrology readings, career forecasts, numerology, past life readings, picture readings, occult, financial outlook and more. Each category has its own sub-categories.

You’ve got several filters so you can sort psychics based on several criteria such as price (lowest/highest, rank, new psychics and price limit).

Kasamba’s psychics have comprehensive profiles as well, with bio, photo, background, ratings, pricing, etc.

How to get a reading

Just like with Keen and most psychic services for that matter, in order to use Kasamba, you have to create an account. You only have to provide an email and password, and a screen name, but only if you want to. An additional feature offered by Kasamba is the ability to connect through your Facebook account, something Keen doesn’t have.

Once you’ve registered, you look for a psychic and schedule a reading.

Kasamba has a money-back guarantee, sort of…You can be refunded for up to $50, in case you are not pleased with the reading. However, they do claim they reserve the right to deny you the refund, so getting that money back might not be as easy as it seems.

How much does it cost?

Just like with Keen, the first 3 minutes are free with Kasamba, too. Overall, this service is more affordable than Keen. Their readings start from $1.69/minute and their top-rated psychics cost up to $25.50/minute, which is anyway cheaper than with Keen.

Conclusion

All in all, although there are some similarities between the two services, we have to say that Kasamba does offer more for less money. Keen is a reputable service as well, has a large network of readers and 20 years of experience in the industry, but Kasamba has a more attractive and better optimized website, more famous psychics and better quotes.
