Nigeria was among the Countries blacklisted by PayPal, because of this, we were not Opportune to open a PayPal Account. When this was done, Nigerians developed other means of using of PayPal which was by hiding their IP address and changing it to USA.
But today, Nigerians can now open and verify Their PayPal account without hiding their Nigeria IP and can now use their PayPal without been banned. Though Nigerians are restricted to receiving funds on the account but it’s better and still meaningful since Payment Of Goods And Services are still enabled.
