4. Sell your Products and Services
Can I be an Amazon seller in Nigeria? This is the question from many Nigerians that want to sell their products on Amazon. Yes, you can. It is just that you will need to use VPN since Nigeria is not yet listed as one of the approved countries by Amazon.
With the use of VPN you can change the country you live in (Nigeria) to an approved country listed by Amazon. After this, you can sign up on Amazon and upload pictures of your products. Making money on Amazon with this method is often stressful.
This is because you have to constantly use VPN to visit Amazon and you will need a friend from an approved country to help you with the pick-up point of your products. If this option looks stressful for you, you can look at other option you have to making money on Amazon.
However, I believe this will change in the near future because soon Nigeria will be listed too as one of the approved countries.
