This is one brilliant and informative post Mathew. A question that is asked often asked Including the payment section. You have done this brilliantly. I shall use this when I see the questions rise up again as they most often normally do.

You are a star Mathew. Thank you.

Hey Shwni,

I read in WA somewhere that Morocco and Uganda sign ups were not able to avail of the Free Sign up. Just looking for confirmation on that if you know. Thanks Shwni.

I will double check that with site support but they only gave me the full list a few weeks ago which I updated here. I will ask again and get back to you.
Thanks for letting me know this buddy :)

Is there an updated list? I have seen a lot of new people from Nigeria and the Philippines. Also saw a list during my research on scams not so long ago and it was disturbing to see that posted. Hope you can help us Shwni.
Reply
Shwni Premium
I had the updated list from site support only a couple of weeks ago so I would imagine that it is correct unless it has changed since.
I will ask them again and get back to you :)

Thanks Matthew I think you have it right. For the most part I guess they have to upgrade right away. Good stuff and thank you.

The list here is still the same and it's like we said, those countries can only join if they sign straigt up to be a premium member and not have access to the free 7 day trial. I hope this helps :)

It does for sure Shwni. I think I might do a review as It is a grey sort of area and mis-understood. If you don't mind, I may use the affilate link to your post/training. Thank you for checking into this and posting the information.

Thanks for letting me know, I have only just updated this list which I double checked with site support and this is the list that they gave me.
I will speak to them and ask if the list has changed. Will you let me know if they still have problems joining as a free member?
Thanks

So, is the commission only paid to a PayPal account?
Reply
chrisbailey Premium
PayPal is definitely their preferred method of payment, but I believe that they may work with you if it's not an option.

You would need to contact support to find out.

Besides PayPal, Debit/Credit cards, what other online payment solutions are accepted by WA? I understand that some regions and countries have preferred favorites but ultimately WA decides which online payment platforms they prefer to use (i.e. for receiving payments or paying out commissions). As we know, fee structures vary.
Reply
MsMerry Premium
As far as I know, WA accepts PayPal, credit card and I am not sure about the debit card but now that so many have a visa or MST attached I guess they would.

Some people they haven't got paypal or their country doesn't deal with paypal account not join WA thats no free.
paypal accounts still country allow WA by paying with a credit or debit card but it will be much easier to have paypal later on as people commissions will go they are joining free
Reply
Shwni Premium
I am showing the countries that can't join as a free member or take advantage of the first-month offer of just $19, The countries that I have shown in this tutorial are the countries that Carson and Kyle have had issues within the past and nothing to do with the PayPal situation as there are alternatives to PayPal that can be used I have heard.

I always objected when I was held after school because someone else in the class messed up. Punishing a whole country because a minority of it's population are crooks is not a solution. The solution, and it works, is for members to report spammers and fraudulent opportunities. One of the rules here at WA is don't share affiliate links here. Do it on your website.

It is like Mr Trump trying to exclude all Muslims from my country simply because a tiny minority are terrorists. I have to take a stand against any kind of discrimination.

Yes, I have expressed my opinion in a PM to Kyle and I hope a lot of you do the same.

I will take your concerns to live chat to see what others think. I can't comment myself as I don't know the whole story, I just wanted to let everyone know about the countries that can't join as a free member because I have seen many people ask about it.
I'm sure Carson and Kyle are just looking out for their business as we all would and it is their own prerogative.

Great thought. I am from Nigeria and I have been here for almost two years now. We have a lot of people in my country that want to make money online but it depends on how desperate they are before they can decide to join this great platform.

Most of these countries listed are not allowed to receive funds via PayPal, and this is the only way to cash out here at WA. How can I promote WA effectively as a premium member when I CAN NOT get my funds out?

We need alternatives to PayPal payment method on this platform. Kyle and Carson should look into this.

Regards

John

That's a good point actually. How have you been paid if you don't have PayPal? I know Carson and Kyle have their reasons why these countries cant join on a free membership but I am unsure about an alternative payment method. I will look into this for you.

Thank you for this information! I was just looking for this very same information and asked in the live chat but, there was no response.

So, I appreciate you, for writing this post. I have one question is Nigeria able to join because I saw on a website that Nigeria is no longer able to join due to their continuous hacking and spamming even if they go premium?

Does anyone have an idea on if this is true or not? I only, ask because I am writing my review on WA as I type...

I found all other countries to be exact but, I am puzzled about the Nigeria...

Thanks in advance...

Great post...

That is a great question, I was under the impression that all countries could join as premium and I haven't heard otherwise, but i will certainly look into this. Thanks for bringing this up :)

I'm not exactly sure about Nigeria specifically.....I haven't heard of anyone not being able to join....I personally have had people join from other countries in Africa but I don't know about Nigeria specifically.

Oh okay, thank you! I saw Africa was good to go, it just confused me when I saw someone else's blog that said Nigeria can no longer join even if they are premium. So, I guess I will find out in due time.

Hi Matthew, I grabbed the link you left on live chat and this is a great tutorial, well done.

I didn't know we could use our debit cards. I thought it was credit cards and paypal only.

Thanks for the list I took note and I can see why they can only go straight to Premium with all that spam and fraud!
Reply
Shwni Premium
Thanks Patsy, yes from what I've heard there is way too much spamming from those countries so if they are really serious about starting an online business then they won't mind joining straight as a premium member :)

You are welcome, I agree. Kyle and Carson are smart to do it this way, they don't need all the spamming and fraud. They have enough to take care of!

I was under the impression that these were the only countries unable to join as a free member, is that not the case?

no I think that is about right. Just wanted to add them to my adwords and bing ads as exclusion list. Pointless to commercialize for a free account if they cannot get it anyway. saves a bit of the money in that account.

This is AWESOME! I've had some people ask why they couldn't join as a free member - and this explains it all! I've even asked in the chat room a couple times, but no one could tell me why others couldn't join when they tired (as a free member!)
This is great information, especially when using targeting ad campaigns!
Thanks so much for this - it clear a lot of questions up! :)
