In Nigeria there are loads of online banking, mobile money and stuff but none seem to fill in the appetite of an average Nigerian developer or e-commerce starts-up who wants to make money online genuinely without the fear of the International buyer or seller feeling abit skeptical when you don't have a PayPal account. But lately Mastercard has been making things possible(but not so well like PayPal would do).

Fortunately on Monday (16th June 2014) former Visa Executive Rupert Keeley announced that PayPal will be adding 10 new countries including Nigeria to it's database. The executive in charge of the EMEA region made it clear that for now these countries will only be allowed to make payment online wherever they see the PayPal Logo.

Now you'll wonder why you still haven't seen Nigeria listed in the Signup page when you visit http://paypal.com ? Well it's simply because the PayPal website automatically detects your country from your IP (Internet Protocol) and then redirects you to the country your IP tells it. But now for those who would love to Signup for this PayPal account directly kindly follow this easy steps below...

How To Signup For The Nigerian PayPal Account

P.S: If you get an error with the credit card you're using, don't bother about it continue the sign up but go to your bank to make a complain why your card wasn't accepted on PayPal.

By now you should receive an alert(unless disabled) from your bank via SMS or email with a code which you’ll use in completing the final verification process.

The SMS alert should read.
