Nigerian Paypal Restrictions - 2018


Paypal has been on the internet since December 1998, As it was founded in  Palo Alto, California, United States. But when paypal was launched, Nigeria and some other countries where not able to partake in one of the largest online payment around the globe. It was later confirmed around 2014 that Nigeria and some nearby countries can now make use of paypal which actually added smile to some internet markerters, but to some extent. In-fact as of today paypal has been available in 203 countries global but some countries have restrictions unlike other countries. Nigeria and so many African countries where restricted to  receiving money through there paypal account or to withdraw directly into there Bank account.
Take for instance, when you search for "What services are available for my country? " in paypal. Take a deep look at these screenshots and see things made available for someone using paypal in USA and someone here in Nigeria.

Nigerian Resident Paypal account offerings

You can now see that Paypal offering for Nigerian resident is only to make payments. There is no available option for anyone here in Nigeria to recieve or withdraw payment.
Paypal can only be used to make payments here in Nigeria and not otherwise. So anyone telling you any other thing apart from this is a big SCAM.
I took out time again to message them directly at Paypal  asking them if i can be able to recieve and withdraw payments here in Nigeria, and this was there response

"Dear Emmanuel ,

Good day! I hope you're doing well today. My name is Shane  from PayPal Customer Service.

Thank you for your interest to receive payments using PayPal. I'll be glad to clarify this for you.

At this time, the receive money feature and add bank in relation is still unavailable in Nigeria due to our compliance with your local financial regulations. There's no exact timeframe yet on when the service would be available. Let me assure you that we will contact you as soon as this feature becomes available so that you could use it right away. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

In the meantime, kindly contact your clients to arrange other payment options that are available for you to use such as bank transfers, check or money order. If you have a friend or family member that has a PayPal account that receive and withdraw funds, you can ask them to receive and withdraw the payments on your behalf and they can send the payment to you outside of PayPal.

Let me assure you that you can definitely send international payments for business use or purchase for free using your XX58 MasterCard.

We'll be glad to hear from you if you need clarification or assistance. Please don't hesitate to email us again. You can also call us at +1-402-517-4519 (U.S. telephone number) Monday to Friday, 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM local time.

Thank you for choosing PayPal for your online payments needs. Have a great day!
