Few days back from time of this post, every Nigerian internet marketer would kill to have a Paypal account so as to easily run their online businesses but that wasn’t possible as a result of Nigeria not listed in their supported countries, though there are several ways to bypass their restriction and create a Paypal account in unsupported countries, it still wasn’t easy managing such accounts.

The good news all came up when Rupert Keeley, the executive in charge of the EMEA region of PayPal, the payments unit of eBay Inc, said in an interview on Monday (16th June, 2014) that 10 new countries were going to make their list of which Nigeria was included.

Paypal has been the world’s major means of Payment on the web, and bringing their services to Nigeria is one welcome development we have always been praying for. Though for now, Paypal has not enabled peer-to-peer transactions in Nigeria, you can only make purchases and not receive payments with your Nigerian Paypal account.

How To Signup A Nigerian IP Based Paypal Account

Here is a beginners guide to signing up a paypal account from Nigeria.

1. Visit Paypal Nigerian homepage via https://www.paypal.com/ng/ and click on Signup at the top right corner of the page.

2. Click on “Open Account” under the “individual” section for a personal account.

3. Fill in all details and click on “Agree and Create Account“.

Getting Verified Using GT Bank’s Naira MasterCard

Without verifying your paypal account, you would be placed at a $250 limit. Verifying your paypal account lets you spend as much as you will.

4. A new page would come up with a form to log in your Card details. I used my GT Bank’s Naira MasterCard to get mine verified.

5. You’ll be redirected to your account’s dashboard. But there are few things you still need to do. Firstly, you have to activate your paypal account by clicking the activation link sent to the mail you registered the account with. Secondly, you need to link and confirm your credit or debit card. Click on “Link and confirm credit or debit card” or “Get Verified” link in your account’s dashboard, insert your GTB Mastercard details here again, then click on “Continue“. You can make use of any Nigerian bank’s Visa or MasterCard.

6. Paypal would deduct $1.95 from your card which they’ll refund in 24hrs. Now, your bank will alert you via SMS or email with a code which you’ll use in completing the whole verification process.

Your bank’s SMS alert should read.

Acct:******1234
The Naira equibvalent of USD1.95 has been authorized for the transaction done on PP*0123CODE 0123456789FF

What you need do is copy the 4 digits before CODE (highlighted in red) from your mail or SMS alert. That’s what you need to confirm your card.

7. You now have to login once more to your Nigerian Paypal account and click on “Confirm Card” link which should appear on the right sidebar of your dashboard. Then type in the four-digits you copied from your bank alert and click on “Confirm Card” as shown below.

verify your card

8. You’ll get a success popup if everything was fine and successful.

Here is a screenshot of my Nigerian verified Paypal account.

And that’s how easy it is to signup a Nigerian Paypal account and get verified using any debit or credit card. Remember, I made use of my GTBank MasterCard here and it did work for me.

  46. I was unable to submit after filling my detail it kept saying drs an error…please is dr a wai fho u to help me open dis acc

  47. You are wonderful, Oscar. pls notify me when nigeria paypal starts to get payment down to their local account.

  48. Pls can some transfer money to me from outside nigeria tru paypal and if yes will it be credited into my registered account?

  49. But Na wa oh. We Nigerians and Africans as a whole have gotten so used to getting the short end of the “chewing” stick that when these types of situations occur we immediately start rejoicing. “Oh let’s make some money off these third world countries but no, God forbid we allow them to get something in return”. So in other words, PayPal is allowing us to spend and send our money out of the country so they can make commission off merchants, but when it comes to allowing revenue to return it’s not allowed. Aint that some bullshit? And that “Nigerian Scam/419” excuse is blown out of proportion. “While Nigeria is most often the nation referred to in these scams, they may originate in other nations as well. For example, in 2006, 61% of Internet criminals were traced to locations in the United States, while 16% were traced to the United Kingdom and 6% to locations in Nigeria. Other nations known to have a high incidence of advance-fee fraud include Ivory Coast, Togo, South Africa, the Netherlands, and Spain”. Google 419 and check wikipedia. I live in the US, the majority of the people cracking cards here are not even Nigerians. Na wa Oh.

  50. please i want to send my PayPay details to my customer in Germany to transfer money for me, what are the details i have to send to him??? i have already created and verified my account.

  57. Oscar my friend, thanks for the information.
    But paypal officials are not getting it right. How can someone open an account without been able to receive money through it? This is not right! As big as paypal company is, they couldn’t be able to track criminals if not by restricting us from receiving money!?
    As for me, I’ll wait until Nigerians be able to receive money because I am an online designer.

    Thanks once again Oscar, and please do let us know whenever they lifts the restriction.

I just opened mine, my card has been charged $1.95 but am yet to receive the 4 digit code /pin to verify my account. i used Stambic card and I don’t know what’s causing the delay.

  73. If i use a USA address, will i be required to verify the address in question by providing a utility bill or social security number before my paypal account can be verified? Thanks.

  74. Once it has been verified using a Nigerian Naira MasterCard, can one be able to withdraw his money from that verified PayPal account in ways in which he can see the physical cash?

  75. Sir,using naira PayPal account in online purchases and using the ordinary visa or MasterCard in online purchases which one out of the two will the dollar exchange rate be friendly, thanks.

  76. Thanks a lot for the above information but I have tried several times to register and the only message I got was ” you are already registered with this email” and when I try to login, I receive a message saying; “something isnt right with the information, please try again later”.

  106. Thks for ur write up on how to verified paypal acct with gtbank naira master card. Pls i am having problem with linking of my card. Pls let me call u on my pho. No: 08034403446.thks

  109. Guy Nyc post. Pls I wanna clerify something. Apart from your billing address, is there any other thing that
    will make paypal reject your card??….like if the CSC at that back of your card is written “Not valid unless signed”….is that also an obstacle or problem???

  110. Please I opened a Paypal account and its showing Paypal Inc. US. Does this mean I opened the wrong one when it was meant to be Nigeria. And it is not accepting my GT bank Master card error message ( Check your card details and try again.). Please what should I do. is there a way to close it and open another one for Paypal Nigeria?
    When I used this link https://www.paypal.com/ng/ it still took me to Paypal Inc. US.

    Or can I be assisted at the bank?

    • The Card issue can be resolved at your bank. More so, the Paypal Inc. U.S goes on to tell you Paypal is operated as an Incorporation in the US. That was the right site you got registered on and a Nigerian Paypal account you do have.

  111. Thank you very much, Frank and well-done for your nice write up on how to create PayPal account number. Please let me ask if it is possible to receive money via PayPal account in Nigeria apart from using PayPal to purchase goods and services outside the country? Remember this is year 2018

  112. Does it mean when my PayPal account is paid into from outside, I can withdraw it, for instance, from the account I linked it to?
