Best Affiliate Networks For Nigerians




In my last post, I explained what affiliate marketing is all about and how it is a good source of extra income for a website/blog owner. I also stated the difference between an online and offline affiliate marketer. I will be discussing the best affiliate networks for Nigerians.

It is no longer news that some of the best affiliate networks that generate good traffic with a good number of advertisers do not accept Nigerians while the ones that do are not able to pay out revenue cos of PayPal’s limitation. This has limited and discouraged a lot of bloggers and website owners who would have loved to partner with the networks.

I have done a little research on some networks and I will be listing out the best affiliate networks that work for the Nigerian site owners/managers without the skill or resource to get a verified PAYPAL account or have a verified virtual address in countries that are accepted by these networks.

Note that PAYPAL now accepts Nigerians but we are still limited to making payments alone and cannot receive.

Here are some of the good affiliate networks that accept Nigerians and one of them is purely Nigerian and is among my best

9.AdDYNAMOClaims to be Africa’s leading digital advertising platform. You are paid per click. They also pay Nigerians in their local currency (NAIRA). Deposits are made direct into their account. They also use PAYPAL for publishers that have verified PAYPAL account.Direct Deposit, Ad Dynamo Visa Card*
10.NameCheapDomain name registrar. They also host websites and help you in managing your domain account. Namecheap has been named No 1 in Readers’ Choice in HostReview’s 2013 awards. They are customer friendly. I recommend them to Nigerians affiliates not because of the money you will be making from them because they pay with PAYPAL but because they also have what they call NAMECHEAP FUND. With this payment platform, you can use the money you make to renew your domain or hosting account or that of other webmasters that registered under you or organizations you manage the website or forums.Namecheap fund*

*Ad Dynamo Visa Card Application Publishers qualify for this card if they can be able to earn $130 in 90 days. When the card is shipped to you, a $30 fee is charged to cover card issuing and postage fees. Once you confirm receipt of the card, they’ll load your first $100 into the card and you can withdraw the amount in any Visa Accepted ATM or use to purchase.

You should then create a new publisher and select the Ad Dynamo Visa Debit Card as your preferred means of being paid.

*NameCheap fund  Is an account managed by you. When you receive your commission your money is transferred to your Namecheap fund account. You can buy products from their site from the account. This works best for people that don’t have a PAYPAL account but are using NameCheap as there domain registrar or host.

Well, I will be stopping here for now. The above listed are the best networks I think is good for every Nigerian. If you are using any other affiliate network and it is working for you, do share it in the comment box AND if you are using any of the listed, do share your experience.

    I like that you mention the Amazon Affiliate program. It’s a way through which Nigerians can make money. Just review products, people buy and you get a commission. Although the commissions are low, when compared to other affiliate programs, I’d say it does add up. It has worked for me. I believe it would work for others. And it begins with spreading the message like you have done in this post. Thanks for sharing.
