PayPal is one of the most accepted means of payment in the internet. It was founded by Palo Alto in United States in June 1998 with its headquarters in San Jose, California, United States.
We are all aware of the difficulties in trying to register for a PayPal account in Nigeria before now. However, it would no longer be a problem for Nigerian’s to create an account with PayPal as PayPal expands their payment services to additional 10 new countries with Nigeria included.
The countries include five European markets and four African countries. They are Nigeria, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Zimbabwe, Belarus, Macedonia, Moldova, Monaco and Paraguay.
This is good news to any blogger and online marketers out there as most of the sites I know requires PayPal as their only means of payment online.
It is also very helpful for those who want to make online purchase as so many sites accept only PayPal as payment method.
Paypal will help a lot to many bloggers and internet marketers who wish to integrate PayPal service into their websites.
We won’t have to beg for friends abroad to help receive our goods just because we can’t own a PayPal account here in Nigeria. I can recall how I tried to make payment online so many times but just because I didn’t have a payment account, it was impossible for me. Now this is history as PayPal now accepts account from Nigerians.
The announcement was made on Reuters according to Rupert Keeley, the executive in charge of the EMEA region of PayPal, the payments unit of eBay Inc as from Tuesday 17th of June, 2014 Nigerian’s, with 60 million users and has Africa’s largest population, with nine others will be able to use PayPal. Hence the total number of countries PayPal will now be used worldwide will sum up to 203.
