Amazon Affiliate Phone Verification Problem In Nigeria : How I Resolved It

If you sign up for Amazon affiliate program to start
affiliate marketing with amazon in Nigeria, you will
be required to verify your identity by receiving a
phone call and enter the PIN provided. This
amazon verification process might be so
frustrating especially if you are not a U.S citizen.
After I reopen my amazon associates account
that was closed, I decided to open a new one
since amazon won’t allow me to earn money
anymore with the one that reopened. Verifying the
new account was a nightmare. Whenever I try to
verify it with my Nigerian phone number, it tells
me an error occur and I should try again. After
trying again several times, it will tell me to wait for
about an hour before I can try again. This wasn’t
funny at all.

I searched google, called some friends and finally
found a solution when I asked my Facebook
friends via a Facebook update . I was advised to
get a USA phone number and use it for the
amazon associates phone verification. Lots of
mobile apps were recommended for this but I
used TextPlus mobile app for Android and it
worked for me.
If you download textplus app and sign up a free
account, you will be issued a free USA phone
number. So, I signed up, got my U.S.A phone
number, entered it on the amazon verification
page, received the phone call on my glo number,
entered the pin using my phone keypad and my
account was verified.
That’s all.

    My name is robert frost and I’m a blogger and content writer. I came across your

    was really impressed by the content that you published.

    If possible I’d like to write a sponsored post, similar to your past content. With that in mind I’d like to ask:

    1. Are there any terms and conditions for submitting a sponsored post/Guest Post to your website?

    2. What are the charges for publishing the sponsored post?

    Let me know if you’re interested.

    Best regards,
