The first idea comes with try to talk to some US friends on social media and ask them for help. But something stops me from doing that. I don’t feel good to do that.

And if you want to become an Amazon affiliate and have the same exact problem especially if you are not a US citizen, relax!then you in the right place this post will help you.
Okay! this is what I’ve done and the resources you need to get the job done! Let’s figure it out!
Use a virtual phone number to solve Amazon PIN verification issue
You can use the service called TextNow from the browser or using the TextNow official App/Software. I really recommended using the browser instead. Because you’ll also need a VPN service. Opera Browser is a good alternative choice because it has a free built-in VPN on it.
Why using a VPN? … because in some countries you’ll get a message “Service is unavailable in your country” so VPN is the only solution for this. Make sure you choose Europe in the VPN location settings. Below is an example of how to change the settings in Opera built-in VPN.
Choose to download the apps for your device if you want to use the app. Make sure you have a VPN service such as NordVPN to work with the TextNow app.
Next, you need to sign up for using TextNow, please go to TextNow sign up page here. When you’ve
You have to add a new number in order to use TexNow to receive or sent text and calling as well. You will

Make sure the TextNow app is still running! while you do this. And make sure you wear headphone or your PC/Mac speaker monitor are on.
So! at the Amazon PIN verification page section, which is the last section on the affiliate sign up process. What you have to do is just enter the US phone number you’ve got from your TextNow account. Now you know why I ask you to save the number earlier on TextEdit/Notepad.
[Important!] Make sure you only enter the number without () and – character.
Let the dialed number stay in +1. Then click on
Go to TextNow apps and click accept button to receive phone calls from Amazon. See screenshot.
A man with heavy-deep voice will ask you to confirm the PIN. You can choose to say it with Microphone or just easily type the PIN number in KeyPad in text now app interface. See picture below to open the virtual Phone KeyPad.
In the old version, the KeyPad will pop up! But In the new version of TextNow, the keypad will show on the right panel near the microphone icon. You better type your PIN number quickly!
When you’ve done type your PIN, the man with the heavy-deep-robotic voices will say Thanks to you. Then, in Amazon associates sign up page check the terms of the agreement and click the Finish button
