PayPal For Business: Send and Recieve Funds With PayPal in Nigeria

PayPal is now officially available in Nigeria.

PayPal is the easiest, safer, way to send and receive funds online.

However, Nigerian PayPal users can now send funds to make online payments and also receive funds in USD ($).

Some years back, there was no single country on the African continent where an individual could send/receive PayPal funds online. At this point, there was just one African country with the PayPal for the business option, which was South Africa.

Later on, few countries were selected from the African countries, as most were later added to the list.

As at then, all the African countries can ONLY send money through PayPal – they can’t receive money online through PayPal. This is still an imaginable story in the greatest African economy called Nigeria but today the burden has been solved.

Nigerians go extra miles creating PayPal accounts with other countries using fake credentials to sign up in order to receive payments,  to withdraw from affiliated programs, and to make payments to foreigners, and through this way, many of them have lost a lot of money to the Paypal industry.
Meanwhile, PayPal has now made things easy and possible,

  • Receiving funds from any PayPal account

And still, many more to find out.

  1. Thank you for giving us a feedback, may I know the type of account you tried to open….

    And the new account doesn't pay frequently. It has not been full processed yet

    So you should just be patient while they fix the problem.
