Receiving money

Someone tried to transfer money to me from US and I am in Nigeria and it said I can't receive money at the moment. What could be the issue??

The option to 'receive' paypal payments is sadly not available in Nigeria.
You can only 'send' payments for purchases.

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.
