I'm confused...

I see many post saying such and such country is banned. For instance, I see post stating that Nigeria is banned...

(I see this in WA and outside of WA)

Countries Banned From Wealthy Affiliate - Official Message from Carson

The problem is I see premium members from those same so called banned coutries saying that they are active members here.

Can anyone tell me what coutnires if any are actually not allowed to join?

Or all countries allowed?

I see many confusing post and no accurate answers.

Someone please help...thank you in advance.....

have a great day..

Hey Lakisha,

Great question. To clarify, country restrictions are on the STARTER membership. Users from these countries can create PREMIUM accounts and they are offered that opportunity upon joining.

Also, may be some folks who are from these countries with "Starter" memberships as they joined through servers in other areas of the world, while they are traveling or visiting family in a non-restricted country.

Either way, everyone is welcome at WA. However, we limit access to the Starter membership from some countries where we have experienced significant fraud and gaming of the WA platform.

Hope this helps,

Hey Carson,

Thank you so much for your help!

I never realized limitations was on starter membership only but, now I understand where my confusion was.

I just want to make sure I'm giving out the proper information. I really appreciate your informative reply. I think this will help us all out.

Some from like Nigeria join, but do it using a VPN and therefore, not showing where they're actually from. I've seen it too.
