Yesterday I logged into one of the Facebook accounts I use for marketing and was confronted with this:
I took a photo of an id and modified the name, date of birth and photo to match the account. Note they require the date of birth you use when registering so make sure you note it. Everything else I blanked out. Blurred the image a few times to hide the modifications and make it look like an old school phone pic and sent it in. This is the kind of quality I went for:
- Are you the true owner of the payment method added to your Facebook account? If not, why? Yes - Are you a professional advertiser? If so, which client or marketing agency do you represent? No - Have you initiated a dispute on charges from Facebook with your bank, credit card company or PayPal? No
Within 24hrs the account was back up and running.

This is just one example of how far you have to go in affiliate marketing to make things work. It’s never easy, especially when Facebook’s ad team are involved.
