Is it possible to open a PayPal account in Nicaragua, linked to a Nicaraguan bank account.
Thank you for the help @kernowlass!
Yes! Your friend from Nicaragua can open a PayPal account and can link any local bank account which is issued in the same country! Also, to view the services available, go to the PayPal website, click the flag at the bottom of the page, and then click 'See all countries.' In the drop down menu, select your country to see what services we offer.
I hope this helps!
I'm trying to help my family in Nicaragua open a paypal account with a lafise bank account, but we're running into problems. We first tried with the debit card but it doesn't seem to work. We then tried with the bank account directly but it doesn't seem to work. I'm not sure if it's just a problem with lafise.
Welcome to the PayPal community. It is nice to hear that you are helping your family.
Is the bank account you are trying to add a physical bank account or a virtual one? Virtual bank accounts don't always connect with PayPal.
Are you getting a particular error when you are trying to add it? Be sure when you are adding it that the name and address registered on the PayPal account are exactly the same as the bank account as if they are different the bank may decline it.
I hope this helps,
I am here in Nicaragua and have a business account. I can easily add my debit card for payments. However, anytime I try to link "A bank" of any kind, it asks only for USA accounts. I have only Nicaraguan bank accounts (Lafise, Banpro, BAC, BDF). Where my account has my Nicaraguan Address, National ID, Phone number all here, why would anyone think I would have a USA account?
