How to check if my account can receive fund from customer


I just created a business account some days ago,  added a debit card, and verified the card with a 4-digit code I received when my card was charged.

I am a bit confused, how do I know that my account can now receive money from my customers?

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.
