If you have been asking the question, how do I open and verify PayPal account in Nigeria, this article is for you.

A few years ago, PayPal decided to consider and chose to add Nigeria to its list of supported countries that can use PayPal, which means you don’t need any old back doorways to open and run PayPal account as a Nigerian.

You can now open and verify your PayPal account with straightforward procedures. The good news is that you can open the PayPal account yourself, and it is free.


To open a PayPal account in Nigeria, follow the simple steps below.

Recommended: Open a PayPal business account. It is easier to link your Card, and you can use it to receive payment.

  • First thing you do is visit the PayPal Website here
  • Click on signup – select personal or business
  • Personal will be for your debit card, and business is for your company debit card (if you have one). I suggest you click personal if this is your first time.
  • After selecting personal, click continue…you should see “Nigeria” in the drop-down area, your email address, and password.

  • Fill in your email address (doesn’t have to be Gmail or yahoo. It could be @yourcompanyname)
  • Type in your password and make sure it is one you can remember
  • Go to the next page and type other details such as names, dates of birth, address, and phone number.

  • It takes you to a page where you fill in your debit card details
  • Type in your card number, expiry date and the last three digits behind your debit card.
  • Go to your email account and click on verify
  • Voila!! Your account is set up
  • Test it by sending $10 to anyone or your PayPal account abroad (if you have one)
  • You get debited in naira, and you should get an alert from your local bank


After successfully creating your PayPal account, the next step is to link it with your MasterCard or other supported cards. You can connect more than one card to your PayPal account. I tied two cards to mine. To do this, follow the simple steps below.

  • Simply login into your Internet banking account using your password and token
  • Choose the “PayPal wallet” in the main tab and click “create PayPal wallet” on the drop-down menu.
