How to Open and Run a ClickBank Account in Nigeria

The first thing you need to do to open and run a ClickBank account in Nigeria is to get a foreign address. That can be an address of someone related to you outside Nigeria. All you need to do is to inform the person about this. Once he agrees, you should use his/her foreign address when opening a ClickBank account. This is all you need to open and run a ClickBank account right here in Nigeria. You account will be accepted and then you can safely promote the Clickbank products and earn while you do so.


ClickBank Account in Nigeria

If you don’t have anyone with a foreign address, then the next thing to do to open and run a clickbank account in Nigeria is to make use of a service company called GraphCard. They will offer you a virtual address, US telephone number and ability to use a VISA card. By ‘virtual address’, I mean a specific and personalized US address. This you won’t get for free anyway. It will cost you less than $10 monthly to keep using their services. By ‘ability to use VISA card’, I mean you can also get a VISA card to receive foreign payments.

Graphcard has been in existence since 2004 but unfortunately many Nigerians don’t know about them. So the first thing you need to do know is to open a Graph Card account and register with them as a Nigerian. Registration is FREE. You either choose a personal or reseller account. They offer different services such as Virtual Office. With this, you will be given a virtual address. This is the address that you will require to open your ClickBank account.

To get the virtual address, you will need to easily fund your GraphCard account an online payment processor for Nigerians called VTN (virtual terminal network). What you need to do is to open a free account with VTN, transfer into your VTN account from your Nigerian bank, and then transfer to your GraphCard account. It is easy. Open a VTN (virtual terminal network) account today for free.

Once your GraphCard account is funded, you will have your own virtual address created instantly just for you. After which you should go to ClickBank to register and sign up with the virtual address.

When opening a ClickBank account you should note that they asks for payee name. In the payee name box, put the name given to you by GraphCard and use the virtual address given to you as the place you want your check to be sent to. On the other part of the form, you can put in your real name. Once you do this simple step above, in less than 8 minutes you will be able to open and run a clickbank account in Nigeria without any problem.

    Great info Soji. I went to clickbank page and saw that Nigerians can register but found out from forums and posts like yours that earning fro the platform is not allowed. Thank you for sharing the easiest routes to getting clickbank certified

    • Adesoji

      Thanks Olumide..

  • Mike

    pls what do you mean IRS W-8ben form and can i get it?

    • Adesoji

      It means a Tax form. You will get it in your ClickBank account

  • Vivienne

    Hi Adesoji. Your blog post is interesting and self explanatory. But i heard clickbank requests a tax ID if you will earn above $600 in a year. how can one cross that hurdle?

    • Adesoji Adegbulu

      Yes, if you used a U.S. address to register, you’ll need to enter an Employer Identification Number (for businesses) or a Social Security Number (for individuals) in the Tax ID field.

      But, since you are in Nigeria, you will instead need to fax a completed IRS W-8ben form to ClickBank and that would take care of the tax thing
