Receive payments

Hi all.

Is the service to receive international payments active for South African users?

If so, what does one use as PP ID or reference nr., or account nr to receive money.

Best regards.

Dear friend. Tnx for response. I'm new to PP and also find the site very difficult to follow. I found an answer to my question - one must use the email address that you used to create your PP account. It will be used to identify who is to be paid.  Best regards.

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.

Re: Receive payments

Hello, Please, how do I go about funds that have been sent into my PayPal account since Nigeria is one of the countries that cannot receive PayPal payments? I got a message that payment has been made into my PayPal account yet I can't access it. Each time I log into my PayPal account, it would show no current activity, no balance. Is it that the funds will go just like that? Please, help.
