It’s no more a rumor that PayPal has accepted Nigeria but is very difficult to link Nigeria Debit Card with it due to certain error. Now I’m happy to tell you they have resolved that error and you can now link your Naira Master Card to your PayPal Account easily. Although, it is not possible yet to send money directly to other PayPal users and you can’t receive payments directly to your PayPal account, at least for now, you can pay for products and services on sites that accept PayPal.

How To Verify PayPal Account in Nigeria Using Naira MasterCard

The card type, the last four digits of the card to confirm and the billing address will be displayed. Click on “Continue” to proceed. » After clicking “Continue“, PayPal will charge the card $1.95 (about N320) to make sure it’s yours PayPal, but don’t worry your money will refund within 24 hours after you confirm your card. » Wait for the debit alert from your bank via sms or email and you will see a 4-digit code associated with the PayPal charge, it looks like (PP*1234CODE). » Just note the 4 digits code inside it like that 1234, log back in to your PayPal account and click “Confirm my debit or credit card” » Enter the 4-digit code from your card statement in the space provided and click “Confirm Card” button.

    Greetings good sir, do you find it would be a good idea to buy a PayPal vcc from Auction Essistance? I have no other way to get a card to verify my account.

    Do you think it is a good idea to buy a PayPal vcc from Auction Essistance if I cannot get my own card to verify my account?

  • Nayak, March 30, 2016 @ 8:02 pm Reply

    I have bought from them before, you just need to make sure your account can accept VCCs.

    It's saying "this card not acceptable the a different card" what should I do next

    I have tried using paypal on my GTBank mastercard but it did not allow me either. it gave me a message "this card not acceptable use a different card".
    I now think it will be better for me to use a Visa Prepaid Card in Nigeria. With this, I will be sure that it is the money that I load unto the card that I will be charged not exposing my whole current account to be charged. What do you think sir?
