You might first of all wanna know what is Amazon Associates all about. Amazon Associates is an affiliate marketing program that allows website owners and bloggers make money by advertising millions of new and used products from Amazon.com and its subsidiaries. Associates create links and customers click through those links and buy products from Amazon, they earn referral fees. It’s free to join and easy to use.
So while trying to sign up for the Amazon affiliate program to start affiliate marketing with amazon in Nigeria, I got stuck in the part which was requesting for my phone number for them to verify my identity by receiving a phone call and enter the PIN provided.
Verifying the account was a big issue for me using my Nigerian phone number and it kept on telling me an error occurred. This was so damn frustrating as I even felt like giving up on it. Not until I came across a solution on Ogbongeblog, and this has saved me a lot of stress and time.
I was required to get a USA phone number and use it for the amazon associates phone verification and I had to make use of an Android app called TextPlus mobile app and with it, I was able to verify my amazon associates account in Nigeria.
When you download the textplus app, you’d be required to sign up a free account. After that, you will be issued a free USA phone number. Once you’ve got the free U.S.A phone number, just enter it on the amazon verification page, then you’d be called and taadaa you’d get verified.
