Limitations and no able to use PayPal in Nigeria

Am a nigeria based in nigeria and am a social media manager with a platform where people run adverts and a blogger. I added my PayPal to receive payment from my blog payment and have given it to people to pay for advertising of their product and to propellerads to pay my revenue, unfortunately yesterday I learnt that my country is limited. If nigeria has a bad name, it’s not all Nigerian that are bad, many still has integrity. I was told that I can creat account using another country which I did and just a test if payment can be received, PayPal Banned me. How do we in nigeria use PayPal? We have geniue business that only PayPal can make it easier to transact but we are limited, can PayPal help us even if we we have to go through a more strict verification process? I need to be unbanned

Re: Limitations and no able to use PayPal in Nigeria



The option to receive paypal payments is sadly not available in Nigeria.
You can only send payments for purchases funded by your (confirmed) credit card.

Paypal varies a lot country to country and can only offer the services that the banks / governments of that country allow it to offer.
There are quite a few countries unable to receive paypal payments.


Also its against Paypal rules to use another countries Paypal account and would lead to account limitations.
