How To Do Google AdSense ID Verification in Nigeria

Google AdSense is one of the best means of monetizing your blog. Getting AdSense approval is one thing, verifying the Adsense account is another.

There are 2 modes of AdSense verification.

1. The ID verification
2. The PIN (Personal Identity Number) verification

Once you have reached the verification threshold, Google AdSense will notify you that it is time for Identity verification. What that means is that, Google want to be sure of the person that will be using their services, where is the person from, the name of the person, the person’s address etc.

Before you do Identity verification, you need to make sure the address you are using in your AdSense account tally with the one you are going to send to Google.

You have 3 attempts to do identity verification, if you failed the third time and you don’t carry out the necessary steps – which is contacting Google AdSense support, you may end up losing your Adsense account.

1. International Passport
2. National ID Card (not the NIMC slip, I mean the plastic ID card)
3. Driver’s License
