Its no longer a news that PayPal account in Nigeria cant receive funds, due to the restriction PayPal placed on it. It not that we cannot create a PayPal account in Nigeria but the problem is, it can only send money and not receive, so what exactly are we to use that for right?. Therefore for people like me and you that need to receive payment with PayPal from all our different online business, we need to look for a solution. So the question is How do I create a PayPal account that sends and receive money in Nigeria.
Luckily for you, I’ve come up with the answer to that question, as a matter of fact, you will be using your Nigeria details(email, phone number, address, etc.) to open the account. this means you don’t need to be looking for an international phone number before we can get this done. so lets get started.
Though, it isn’t the intention of Paypal, to restrict Nigerians from withdrawing funds, using Nigerian Paypal accounts, but due to, some not so good reports of the system being abused for fraudulent transactions.
Therefore, Paypal had decided to include, Nigeria has one of their blacklisted countries from reception of funds due to the above stated reasons.
But again, this decision by Paypal had restricted well meaning Nigerians from receiving their hard earned money; from various legitimate, online freelancing and money making programs on the web.
This had being a detrimental factor for so much willing Nigerian to exemplify their skills, commitment and resourcefulness in online paying jobs.
As the saying, says, “the bad eggs spoil everything for the good ones”.
