    Well taken article! I really see reasons why some countries should be banned but I don’t seem to understand why one of those countries should be Nigeria.

    Over the past few years, things have changed drastically in this country, the citizens motives for being online has been harnessed for good… Just consider the number of blogs and online business empires own by Nigerians, I think that explains why a country like Nigeria should never be among the ‘out-of-bounds’ country in the Paypal world; we deserve a place in the paypal white pages…

    I’m not sure using the #PayPalNigeria hastag will help anything, but it’s worth trying. I also feel that more articles like this should be published on various blogs across the web.

    Paypal is very annoying. I think there is more to it than we know. Their claim are not justifiable and it seems rather superficial.

    Nigeria of all countries in the world should not be denied. There are so many freelancing opportunities for me but the issue is majority pay only by paypal. very disheartening.

      You are right friend, there is evidently a plethora of offers, but PayPal has always been a steady brick-wall. I believe they can’t continue to ignore us. Soon PayPal will get rid of their blanket of fear and accept Nigerians..

      Enjoy the rest of the day Abraham.

    I don’t Know, if i should clap for you or not for putting up this post, One of the main reason PayPal was banned in Nigeria was because of our Banking system

    The denial of Nigerians from using the Paypal has limited us to a lot. I have personally missed on a lot of opportunities and though there is a way i can open and run a Paypal account now even as a Nigerian, i don’t usually go to places where i am not needed. I have seen people’s account limited and a lot of money lost.

    No matter what their issue is, i believe some day they will realize the opportunities they are missing from Nigeria by excluding us from using their services. It can only get better, i am optimistic someday it will change and then i can also open an account legitimately.

    Paypal is not the only online money processor that won’t let Nigerians use their platform, others like Skrill also won’t let us use their services as Nigerians, and it will be wrong to say that all Nigerians are scammers, they should build their site and secure it in a way that they can’t be fooled.

      Hello Desmond,

      It’s a precarious situation.. I have tried having PayPal and both attempts had a very pathetic end. Lost a good amount of money on both accounts and I have decided not to think about corporations like PayPal anymore..

      No matter how long it takes, a company built on arrogance will always meet its waterloo.. Motorola, Nokia, Myspace, Symbian, Sony TV are amongst a few corporations and/or products that were largely seen as “untouchable”.. but today the reality is that they have totally lost their relevance..

    Hey Nosa,
    Nigerians and Africans at large suffer a great deal from this issue. I have lost so much online because of this unreasonable limitation by Paypal. I didn’t know most Africans are the most able to break into Paypal and tear their system apart. If not, what’s their fear

      Hello Muki,

      Thanks for stopping by and I certainly agree with you about Africa and PayPal’s Security. It’s something that continues to elude me. I hope this issue becomes history soon.

      Do have a nice day.
