How long must my account stay after creation before I can receive payment and why can't I add my debit card to my PayPal

Can't add my debit card

Esteemed Advisor



You can't add a local bank account / debit card in your country.
You can only link a credit card.

Also 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.

Advice is voluntary.
Kudos / Solution appreciated.
