No Nigerian takes it as fresh news that using PayPal to send and receive money in this country is very tough, knowing that PayPal initiated the limitation of their services for Nigerians. Due to this, we have taken some time to look at ways by which we can use PayPal as Nigerians to collect payment from online platforms or to receive earnings from clients or to receive money from friends, families, and loved ones abroad.

I’ve already made posts on this blog on how to create both USA and South African PayPal accounts that can help you carry out transactions online.

Important Notice for South Africa Paypal Users

Kindly note that there will be a limitation on your South Africa Paypal Account, as from 15th of July 2020, Paypal will be mandatory you to provide Tax documents and other reports for them to continue offering you the services on your South Africa Paypal account and you know, it is not some easy for you to tender as you do not reside in South Africa, so if you have funds on it, make sure you spend it before July 15th, to avoid pinned down of your hard-earned.

Check their notification message in the screenshot below and you can also look for it when you logged in to your own South Africa Paypal account.

The next question that may come to your mind now should be, How can I get another unthreatened and verified PayPal account?

United Arab Emirates (UAE) PayPal account is the way out now. As for this article, I’m going to guide you through how you can open your very own personalized UAE PayPal account that you can use to send and receive cash from anywhere in the world for you to replace the South Paypal account.

Just like South Africa Paypal, you don’t need any VPN to access UAE PayPal Account, you are good to go with your Nigeria IP Address, you can easily verify your account with your Nigeria Identity Card and debit (ATM) card. The most interesting part, there is a means for you to withdraw to your local bank account!

How to Withdraw Money from UAE PayPal Account to Your Bank Account

This is possible by Adding Bank Account Number and Routing Number Given to You by Payoneer.

Before we continue, I hope you have got a Payoneer account or else visit and create your Payoneer account. You will be given a US Payment Service Information such as Bank Name, Routing Number, Account Number, and Account Type. Payoneer comes as an angel in disguise to help you receive money from any part of the globe when other techniques fail. And guess what, you don’t have to pay a single extra penny for that.

Linking your Payoneer account with PayPal is another way of verifying your Paypal account and a means to withdraw Paypal funds into your bank account. Follow the instruction below to get it done:

1. Login to your UAE PayPal account

2. Drag the pointer to the right hand of your homepage or dashboard and hover it on the “spanner” icon, then tap on Account Setting or on Confirm your account as it may appear.

3. From the drop-down menu, click on money, banks and cards, then choose Link a bank

4. Scroll down and click on Link a U.S Bank Instead.

5. Select Checking as your account type.

6. Enter the Bank details that you had received from Payoneer US Payment Service, like Account number and Routing number. (You can also get this info by login to your Payoneer account, from the home page, click ‘Global Payment Service‘. You will see the needed detail there).

7. Then click on the ‘Link your Bank‘ button. This may take 2-3 business days to get processed.

Once you are able to do this correctly, your Payoneer account becomes linked and verified with UAE PayPal! You will need to wait for a while before PayPal will charge Payoneer a little confirmation fee, this is usually done twice, unlike the card method.

Once your account has been charged successfully, you will be able to transfer the money paid into your PayPal to the US bank, which you added and you can withdraw it in your local bank or through ATM with the Payoneer Card issued to you.

That is all for now.

      This is dealing with vital information which including your real name, email address, ID card information, and ATM card details. As you know, It is very risky to share your vital information with strangers. Nothing hard there, it will be better for you to dedicate time for it, look into the instruction carefully, and follow it accordingly.

    • Shelaf, August 30, 2020 @ 3:11 pm Reply

      Yes, you can.
      The only reason why we recommend the business account is for you to use your real Nigeria phone number which is risk free, if you choose personal account, you won’t be able to use your real phone number on it, while this business account can be use to make any transactions, it is working fine just like personal account.
      No cause for alarm, just go ahead and open UAE business account as stated above and you will be able to use it for anything you wish.
