When we published ClickBank affiliate guide, a lot of people complained they were not able to create a ClickBank account in different countries. To address the issue, I have come up with this “No bullshit” guide to create ClickBank account in restricted locations.
If you are residing in Nigeria, Algeria, Congo, Ethiopia and other countries that are blacklisted by ClickBank, then, you will be finding it difficult to sign up for a ClickBank affiliate account.
The reason is best known to ClickBank, but I believe they are trying to keep the environment secure. Some of these countries are known for fraud, but that doesn’t mean there are no other innocent citizens in the country. ClickBank Is just being unfair to some of us.
If you cannot create a ClickBank account in your country, do not worry, I have some good news for you.
Today, I am going to show you how to create a ClickBank account even if you are in a country where it is possible to use ClickBank. You will learn to conveniently run a successful ClickBank affiliate program from your country and actually make a profit.
Before I dive in, a little disclaimer…
I make sure that every guide I put out on this blog works. I do this by testing them out myself and inviting my friends to also do the same. However, I do not guarantee that this guide will or will not work for you.
Consider looking into other ClickBank alternatives like JVZoo.com and shareAsale.com. They offer almost the same benefit.
What’s up with ClickBank?
ClickBank is world’s best affiliate marketplace, where you can find and promote millions of products to get commission up to 75%. The platform is capable of bringing in 7 figures (USD) in revenue. (Read my ClickBank profit guide). The only problem I have with them is that they are being unfair with some African countries.
The list of countries that cannot use ClickBank (who this guide is for) include:
- Bosnia And Herzegovina
- Burkina Faso
- Central African Rep
- Cote D Ivoire
- DR Congo
- Dominican Republic
- Equatorial Guinea
- Iran, Islamic Rep
- Korea, Dem Peoples Rep
- Libyan Arab Jamahiriya
- Palestinian Territory
- Papua New Guinea
- Sierra Leone
- The Syrian Arab Republic
- Sri Lanka
If you are accessing ClickBank from any of these locations, they will be able to track where your connection is coming from through your IP address. So, there is no way to sign up because every country has an IP address allocated to them.
There are two ways I can show you to go about this, and I hope it works for you.back to menu ↑
How to create ClickBank account in restricted countries
- Getting help from a friend oversees (Not recommended)
- Doing it yourself.
If you have a friend or family member living in the United States, or any location where ClickBank is not blacklisted, and more importantly, someone you can trust, you can ask them to assist you to create a ClickBank account. But you will not have access to the account unless you moved to the US.
In that case, getting help from someone overseas is not always a good idea because he will have access to your earnings. Plus he/she may not know much about affiliate marketing thus having a difficult time choosing the right product for you to promote.
That’s why I recommend you to DO IT YOURSELF
What you need is:
- A VPN (With a static IP address)
- A Valid UK address (I will show you how to get that)
- A Privacy browser
VPN with a static IP address
You need a different IP address (Preferably UK) to access ClickBank. To do this, you need a VPN that can assign you a static UK IP address. You wouldn’t get this with free VPNs. You may need to invest a little on it.
Why you should not use a free VPN is because your IP address changes each time you reconnects. If that keeps happening, ClickBank will notice you are trying to cheat the system.
But when you have a VPN with a static IP address, your IP address will be the same throughout your devices each and every time you connect to the internet.
What the heck is VPN?
A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a technology that hides the real IP address your ISP (Internet Service Provider) assigned to your device and provide you with another IP address (A foreign one) to ensure you browse the internet without being tracked.
With a VPN, you can connect to a Canada server and browse as if you are in Canada.
Every device that connects to the internet has an IP address. You will be able to see your IP address and your location when you visit https://whatismyIP.com
What a VPN does is hide that your local IP address and give you a new one, based on the locations’ server you connected to. In that way, ClickBank will treat you as they would treat others.
What VPN should you use?
There are many VPNs with static IP out there, choosing the best one will be determined by so many factors. You won’t want a VPN that will take a long time to encrypt and decrypt. Again, price and customer service is another factors you should also consider.
After comparing different VPNs with static IP specifically for this post, I found Nord VPN to be the best static/dedicated IP VPN.
Nord VPN offers option for both static and Private Dedicated IP address. The VPN enables you to choose exactly what server to connect to, and each server connects to only one IP address.
If you constantly connects to the same server, you will always get the same I address.
Maybe you are not a Nord VPN fan. I have a hand-pick of the best VPNs with a static IP address.
So next thing you will need is a valid UK address.back to menu ↑
How to get a Valid UK address
To create a ClickBank account from a blacklisted country, you need a valid UK (United Kingdom) residence address. To get this, you need a tool called FakeNameGenerator
This tool can generate face Identity, but a correct home address of a UK residence.back to menu ↑
Have you noticed that each time you check out a product on an ecommerce website such as Aliexpress or Amazon and later login to Facebook, you will start seeing ads of those products you viewed earlier?
This is because those website actually logged a cookie on your device browser.
ClickBank can also log and read cookies. Though I am not sure they can track your location using cookies. But then, it is better not to take any chances.
I recommend using a browser that accepts but doesn’t store cookies, such as Epic Privacy Browser.back to menu ↑
