Paypal Setup With Nigeria ATM Cards: How To Open and Verify Paypal Account In Nigeria

Its not news that Paypal account can now be opened and verified/activated in Nigeria but could only be used to purchase online and not receive payment due to the fact that it has been limited.
UPDATES: You can now follow the foskaay forum guide on how to open verified PayPal account in Nigeria

Times ago when Paypal eventually yield the plead of Nigerians and partially allowed the use of Paypal to make payment by Nigerians you can easily make use of all available Bank ATM cards (Visa,MasterCard or Verve) and get set to shop and pay with Paypal while Paypal fund the merchant by removing the equivalent amount from your attached card directly. But, months ago, the story has changed and 99.9% ATM card was turned down including GTB Naira Mastercard which is the most used due to acceptability by most international platforms like Paypal,Facebook etc. for international payment.

It caught me by surprise because most times you don’t get notifications from your bank that they have disabled your card from paying on some platforms until you tried it and then decided to reach out to them. I tried to update my card on Paypal and got the error and after several attempt I got to discovered that even my GTB Naira Mastercard is not able to activate a Paypal account again.

Then, I got my GTB Dollar Mastercard, tried it and it worked. They deducted about $1.95 when I tried to verify the card and got it refunded within 24 hours of inserting the verification code which was displayed in my internet banking Dollar Mastercard account.

The summary of this post is that presently Naira dominated cards can not be used via Paypal but I discovered that you can use your Dollar dominated cards like GTB Dollar Mastercard or Visa card. That will surely be a huge stress for people not having Domiciliary account(s) yet or the Dollar card. Thus, my company Foskaay has included this service in our FoskaayPay4Me Services and if you need to shop via Paypal, Pay for Facebook Ads, etc. kindly reach us via Whatsapp/Call +2347066052228.
