Step #1 Fill out a Bet9ja Agent Registration Form.

The bet9ja administrator’s offices would request some documents during the registration process, which should be submitted appropriately. You shouldn’t leave out any of the documents requested by the office.

After you have submitted your documents, you will wait for the bet9ja office to send any of their representatives to come and review/inspect your shop location or office space. If it meets their approval standards, then you are just on your way to earning daily income.
Step #5 Interview.
Once you pass the inspection, you would be invited or reached out to by a bet9ja representative asking you a few questions that would give them an insight into how you plan to run your business – your bet9ja outlet. If they are satisfied with your answer, you will be considered for employment.
