You’ll agree with me that openning a Domiciliary account in order to receive foreign currencies especially adsense earnings which is paid in dollers, is difficult.
For example GT Bank requires upto 3 current or Dom account holders to serve as refrees to one that wants to open a foreign account, there is also a fixed amount of a hundred doller $100 that’s required to open it, your problem is still not finished, you’ll have to face the problem of time, all this takes time.
This is why if you are receiving adsense payment through wire transfer and you don’t have a Domiciliary account, you should do well to use Savings account, not just any Savings account but the ones I’ve comfirmed.
Even if you don’t have a Savings account with any of this comfirmed Nigerian banks, you should do well to open one as opposed to openning a Domiciliary account. With just 3000 Naira roughly $20 you’ll have a brand new account plus a debit card (always go for Mastercard or Visa, stay away from Verve if you want to do lots of business online).
Though there have been uncomfirmed reports coming from Nigerian bloggers on Bloggerslab, this bloggers have it that Zenith bank, Access Bank, Diamond Bank, FCMB, and Fidelity bank are accepting adsense payment into Naira savings account, it’s still what is it uncomfirmed, so there is no reason in wasting time , with this banks, I suggest you wait for comfirmation or you can try them yourself if you have time. You won’t lose your earnings, it will be returned to you if the bank rejects it.
