  1. Hi Babanature,

    It sounds great. I am also happy with the good news, Babanature. πŸ˜€
    From your article you sounded very pleased with this news. In my country, PayPal existing but not many people know about it. Sometimes I find that an employee who works in a bank, don’t know PayPal and instead asked back “What is PayPal?”
    Hahaha..!!

    Yes, all businesses should have started to go online. It is a great opportunity to grow the business, isn’t it?

    Thanks for sharing this tutorial, Babanature.
    Do have a wonderful week ahead.

      The simple reason your GT Master Card is not being accepted, is simply because your card does not have enough many. Try to fund your mastercard with 1000 naira and try it again. i am sure it will be accepted…

      Thank you for stopping by and do tell me how the story goes.

  7. Hi Babanature,

    That’s definitely great that they opened Paypal in Nigeria and other African countries, because it’s going to open so many opportunities for entrepreneurs of these countries often not favored. I’m really glad for all those folks. And thanks for letting the rest of the world know. I had no idea.

  8. Hi babanature
    It is good to learn PayPal started operations in many African countries. It will be so helpful for bloggers there to make their money transactions online without involvement of any third party.
    You well explained here the whole process of how to get PayPal account. In a listed company there is no need to go for proxy and one can put all the organic information to get the account working.
    In our part of the world in Asia still most of the countries including my country Pakistan don’t have this facility. But we are also hoping to have this in near future.
    Thanks for sharing this wonderful post that now will be a direct need of most of the bloggers in your area.

    I am so happy. But In Pakistan Paypal is not exist. But we have ATM card that have Visa and Master card facility. We can purchase any thing from Internet but the main problem is Paypal is not here.

    Any way thanks for sharing your happiest moment with us.
