Hi.Recently Zimbabwe has been allowed to sign up with paypal.I notcied there is now a request payment button.Can zimbabweans now receive payments.
Welcome to the Forums! 🙂
I'm sorry to hear of any confusion and I'm not quite sure how the request option is showing however at this time, Zimbabwe is a send only region.
It's likely that if you try to use the request tab then you may receive an error or pop up confirming this info.
Again I'm terribly sorry about the confusion. If this changes in the future, we will certainly make an announcement!
I want to send money to Zimbabwe and they're on the list, but their country does not appear in the list of countries when I try to send the money.
Thanks for reaching out to us here. While residents in Zimbabwe are able to sign up for a PayPal account, the functionality of these accounts is limited. They are able to send money, but to receive at this time. You can learn more about this here.
I hope this helps!
