Donna Taylor said she was introduced to Ghanaian Ernest Gyapong at a Morrisons supermarket in Cardonald, Glasgow.
She said Gyapong suggested she take £2,000 to marry him.
Taylor, 34, got a downpayment, with the rest after the November 2006 register office ceremony in Paisley.
She told Glasgow Sheriff Court she was introduced to Gyapong by Janet Cathie who is on trial. She added: “I was doing it for the money.”
Prosecutor Mark McGuire asked: “Did you intend to be his wife as we normally understand it?” Taylor replied: “No.”
She said her sister Catherine married a Ghanaian man for the same sum. Cathie, 48, of Cardonald, denies breaching immigration law by arranging three sham marriages and signing a false name at a wedding.
The trial continues.
