To do this, you would need to fund your graphcard account.
3. Funding Your Graphcard Account With VTN
Before you can request for a virtual US address, you need to have some funds in your account for the processing, and the simplest way you can fund your Graphcard account is by making use of their sister site at VTN. Open another account with them using the same details (not compulsory) you used when opening your Graphcard account.
Adding funds to your VTN account is simple, log on to your account, at the left navigation menu, click on the “List of Banks to Add Funds” link to get their Nigerian bank account details. After payment has been made, log on back to their website, at the left navigation menu again, locate and click ‘Confirm Bank Deposit’, fill the form with the transaction details which you can find on the deposit slip you paid with, and your account should be funded within 24hrs, if not less.
4. Fund Your Graphcard Account.
As soon as your VTN is funded, log on back to your graphcard account, click on the ‘Add Funds’ link at the top of the menu, this will take you to a page, click on the VTN link that shows up, follow the instructions and your Graphcard account will be funded immediately in dollars.
5. Get Your US Address.
Log on to your account, then click on the Get a us address link boldly displayed on top of your account, choose the lowest plan which is either silver or bronze. Follow the rest of the instructions, and your US address will be registered and emailed to you within 24hrs. Log on to your account after 24 hours or less, and you will see your address boldly displayed for you on the top of the page.
You can use this address to register with the various affiliate network you work with. Once your payment is ready, your cheque will be mailed to Graphcard (LFR Communications, Inc.) who will then help you clear it and credit your account graphcard accordingly.
6. Then, Withdraw Your Money From Graphcard.
You can either request for a bank wire if you have a domiciliary account. I recommend Guaranty Trust Bank, or request for a western union money transfer to be collected at any designated bank, or request fund to be paid back into your VTN account which you can easily cash in your local bank account.
To do any of these, log on to your graphcard account, and click on “Withdraw Funds” on top of the page, choose the option that best suits your need, follow the rest of the instructions to get your money.
