BENEFITS OF BECOMING BET9JA AGENT
Just as we have already pointed out, there are a lot of benefits with becoming a bet9ja agent and we have already mentioned the point of it being a good source of income.
Another really wonderful advantage is that bet9ja is already well known. As soon as you set up shop and put up your bet9ja banner anybody who is into betting will immediately know what the shop is about and your customer base will come to you. So you see that you don’t have to waste energy, time and resources trying to convince or get people to come to you.
Another benefit of joining bet9ja as an agent is that their commission rates are based on turnover. You make your money from every bet you print as there is already a particular percentage you get from every bet that is placed. For instance, let us assume that the percentage for every ticket you print is 10% that means that for every 100 Naira bet, you will make 10 Naira and for every 1000 Naira bet, you will make 100 Naira.
And just like that, you keep making your money. This is really cool because whether or not the person placing the bet wins or not, you already made your money. Your only concern should be in hoping that people stake large sums of money so that your earnings will keep getting bigger.
You do not lose anything when your customers win as all that is shouldered by the company. It will even be good for you if people win often in your shop as most times they will view your shop as a place with good luck and keep coming back. They will even go on to tell their friends and colleagues to always patronize your betting shop. This will mean that you will not just maintain your customer base but it will keep growing and that means more money for you.
Another awesome advantage of being a bet9ja agent is that you and your staff will get a free training course catered to by the company. They will teach you what you need to know about how the betting system works not only for the real life games but also for the virtual games. It will interest you to know that the company has Over 5000 events and over 12,000 live betting events for football every week.
This is very attractive to the people that are betting as they love the many options available to them. You also make fast earnings from the various innovative virtual games that their platform offers. The virtual games goes on for about 90seconds and you remember that we earlier mentioned that you make your money on the bets that you print not on whether the person betting wins or loses.
REQUIREMENTS FOR BECOMING A BET9JA AGENT

The first requirement is that you should get a shop. The reason for this is really obvious, you cannot just set up under open skies and be praying that it doesn’t rain on a particular day or that the sun does not get too hot. People that are betting will not even want to subject themselves to such conditions.
