As the majority of Wealthy Affiliate members know well, "membership has its privileges" to borrow the 1980s slogan from American Express. The entire WA experience is all about getting the best online training in ways to start an online marketing business with your own website.

Not only is it easy to build your website, it can be done in less than a minute after clicking the "Build" button, but this can be accomplished along with 10 lessons as a Free Starter Member. You will not find any other online business opportunity that will allow you to start for free.

WEALTHY AFFILIATE SAVES YOU MONEY

Wealthy Affiliate knows that what they are offering their members is a high quality training program that includes online business building tools and resources. And WA does not just stop there with their awesome prices. You can save money in a few ways by becoming a Premium Member.

Firstly you can stay a free member for as long as you like, though you will be limited to only the first 10 of 50 lessons. Then when you do decide to go Premium your first month will only be $19 and then all recurring months at $49. Or you can save $229 per year and pay $359 for the yearly Premium Member.

HOWEVER...

Though the free starter cost is available for the majority of the world's population, there are seven countries that are exempt from the free starter cost and $19 first month. If you should happen to refer a person from any of the following countries, just know that they can only join WA as a paid $49 per month member.

Bangladesh

Egypt

India

Nigeria

Pakistan

Philippines

Vietnam

Make sure you know about this information so you can answer the questions of potential members from these countries.

I'm from the Philippines. I joined right away as a Premium Member when I see the potential of WA. This is something I wish I found years ago.

ThePopulation of India is 1.25 billion. Out of such huge population how many numbers have cheated WA ? Why do you punish such a big population for tiny numbers which can be counted on fingers ? There is very high potentiality is there to add very high
quality of members. Top leaders of the world from all the fields
has Visited India and wrote reviews about the greatness of the country. I think WA admin must study thoroughly about India and must rethink to change the decision about exempting starter membership. Because present decision is nothing but total injustice with such a huge population of the world.

it is like this with the other countries too. It is unfortunate that so many have to be penalized for the actions of a small percentage.

I totally agree with you Prakash sir, it's really painful that India is listed in banned countries.

Potential is HHHuge in India.
Hope one day it will be removed from the Banned countries list.
Amen !

It's a pity that those countries listed could get the free premium membership. But I can understand as there are a lot of scams that originated from these countries listed.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Yes, that is the reason they are exempt from the free membership.

The legend rises again! Robert, you are so helpful!

That is information we needed to know about. I have quite a few LinkedIn connections from some of those countries. If I get a referral from them, knowing this will be advantageous.

Thank you so much.

No, still brunette :) Those are just light pink hair extensions. My hair is a little dyed light brown, ombre style though.

It would take several applications of bleach to make my hair blonde lol my natural hair color is really dark brown. The light brown was all my hair could do with one application of a bleached dye, crazy huh lol?

I would love to know why these countries are not offered the privilege that is offered to some other countries. What could be the logic behind?
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
It is because these countries have a high incidence of payment fraud.

Thanks for the reminder Robert, and if they join before Black Friday, even more savings on their yearly membership will be coming their way as it did in the past. Bishop

As long as they are not already a yearly premium member, they will be able to take advantage of the Black Friday sale.

How come? Shouldn't the poorer countries have a special price instead? It makes no sense to me to not only have them pay the full prize, but even from right away. Or did I understand that wrong?
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
The reasons these countries are forced to pay the full premium price up front is because they are known for a high rate of payment fraud.

You are welcome. I too have had possible referrals from some of these countries that wanted to join for free. But they cannot due to a higher rate of fraud in these countries.
