    Apparently they don't accept affs from my country Nigeria. Fuck, what did we do for crying out loud!
    I just began gathering momentum after my YouTube account got demonitized which I whined about here

    Never knew they don't accept affs from my country. Had the account since 2015 with a friends UK address, it worked fine until now. And now Clickbank is siting on my ~$150 which is a lot in my country.
    Just too depressed to even pull down there links from my site and YouTube channel and I can still see traffic heading there way.
    Now where do I start from?????:weep::weep::weep::weep:
    Please think twice and verify well before you think Clickbank.

    If you had no idea that Nigeria is not accepted, why did you sign up with a UK address?

    I saw a thread sometime this week with someone facing the same issue, and banned for the same reason. It sucks, but to save time these affiliate networks just blanket ban certain countries with a high fraud rate. You may have been doing everything right, but scammers from your country fucked it up for you.

    Try another, maybe smaller affiliate network that won't have issues with your country.

    I do wonder if there are that many scammers in Nigeria overall. I mean it's a population of 190 million. You have to wonder on a per capita basis whether there are more or less scammers than the USA. I would say the traditional Nigerian scams are simply less sophisticated e.g. emails saying "I am a prince from Nigeria send me money". I think it's possible though the USA has higher rates of fraud overall but the fraud is simply more sophisticated due to better access to financial resources, education and technology.

    Well, at the point of opening the account, I looked for Nigeria as one of the country options, I couldn't find, so I thought it was a mix up or something, and I never found anywhere until I was blocked, that Clickbank doesn't accept affiliates from any country. I found UK since I have an address I could use. I didn't find it anywhere categorically stated on the signup page that Nigerians are not accepted. Why on earth will I knowingly risk time and money to for this? We live and learn though, that's life.

    You are spot on man. And those of us not trying to scam no one but earn a living legit suffer all kinds of things. I don't go near anything PayPal because you can't receive with a Nigerian PayPal and I burnt my finger once with a US PayPal. It's crazy man.

    OP, regardless of how shit it is, look at it from this perspective:

    1. It was nice so long it lasted. You mentioned you had the account since 2015, which means you got to earn nicely for roughly 4 years while it was not allowed? Look at it positively.

    But more importantly:

    2. Given that you reached ~50$ per week once, it means that you can do it again. You have proven you have the skills, so just repeat it. Learn from your mistakes, or be smarter about them ;)

    Clickbank allows affiliates from Mars yes, just not Nigeria.. /sarcasm off

    OP clearly demonstrated that he is able to drive traffic successfully and convert it. Clickbank is not the only affiliate platform out there, so he should find something else to promote. It's a skill that can bring in money, all you have to do is find something that works within your (geographical) boundaries. @bugulma -- I'm sorry you could not grasp this from my initial comment.. :rolleyes:

    Maybe you could start a joint venture with someone from an accepted country. You send your traffic to the offer and let them keep a small cut for being able to use their account.

    He would need to JV with someone from a second world country maybe where even 5 or 10 bucks a week is a good amount of cash. Really not worth the risk and time/effort for a few bucks a week if you're in a first world country.

    Maybe he can be the first clickbank of Nigeria and start his own! Nigeria will have a population of 1 billion by 2100 (not kidding,
    real data look it up). So he can be one of the first to get in on one of the potential biggest markets in this century.

    blame it on the Nigerian prince...

    anyway, the BEST thing to do now is to find someone from 1st tier country that you can trust, he can open a clickback account with his name and details and for a % of your profits he will accept the revenues for you.
    you will have to replace all the old affiliate links to the new account. but you MUST handle that account with a dedicated Virtual machine that is located on that same country (it may cost $15-$20 per month)
