There are some things that are shouldn’t be left untold. Just a month ago, some bloggers rally round and threw up the protest against Paypal. Now with much excitement that I share this news that paypal has finally extended its payment services to Nigeria.


Like I earlier said, I remembered I filled a form protesting against why paypal has for long restricted Nigerians from using their services and why Nigerians has dwell so much in online businesses. I believe this is a new era for Nigeria. I heard it as a rumor and confirmed it from Reuters to be credible.

  However, according to Reuters report:

PayPal is entering 10 new countries this week, including Nigeria, providing online payment alternatives for consumers via mobile phones or PCs in markets often blighted by financial fraud. Rupert Keeley, the executive in charge of the EMEA region of PayPal, the payments unit of eBay Inc, said in an interview on Monday the expansion would bring the number of countries it serves to 203. Starting on Tuesday, consumers in Nigeria, which has 60 million users and has Africa’s largest population, along with nine other markets in sub-Saharan Africa, Eastern Europe and Latin America will be able to make payments through PayPal.

 This invariably means that PayPal is extending its payment services to Nigeria from the 17th of June 2014. I think this is interesting to hear. Now my thought is why has Paypal Loosened up their jerk? Does that mean that online business in Nigeria has finally taken shape or what?

For over 10 years, Nigerians have been blacklisted by PayPal so much that there’s a type of scam called Nigerian scam on PayPal forum. This is very annoying you know. And most times I wonder if there are no scamming, no fraud and identity theft in America and all other listed countries.

 So now my question is: 

Why has PayPal decided to accept Nigeria into their system?

Good question right?

1. Could it be the protest some good bloggers threw up recently on believe they did a wonderful job, we have to speak for a change and it was done.

 Many bloggers wrote posts on this same topic and some other bloggers also got inspired and joined the train. We can’t just pay for the sins of the few bad eggs of then.

 This is a new age, new technology and we all took it by force. I believe most bloggers know the importance and the extent at which paypal can go. One can hardly do any transaction online that does require the use of paypal.

 2. Could it also have anything to do with the recent exit of that PayPal CEO, David Marcus to Facebook

 3. Or probably they now realize how much they missed earning from a country of over 250 million people with about 60 million internet users and loads of consumers who buy on impulse?

 Well no one really know why they change their mind towards Nigerians, but all I know is that.. the time is perfectly right for Nigeria.

  The Benefit 

 So much to say on this, because I believe many bloggers have been hindered from affiliate marketing because of unavailability of PayPal. So also this is going to boost the confidence of many foreign countries that refused to do businesses with Nigeria in the past, because PayPal indirectly told them not because Nigeria has been blacklisted.

 Also the good news is for Nigerians who make money on fiverr, and especially those that make solo ads service, now you can buy and run your gig conveniently as a Nigerian.

 Do you just ask what solo ads is? It is a direct mailing to loyal subscribers.

Why you should use solo ads for your business and get leads 

• Because it works
• It works for getting clients
• It works to get you in the door
• It works for lead generation
• It works for traffic in to brick and mortar or online
• Every other business is using online communication so it is wide open.

 I used a seller for my affiliate marketing promotion and she gave me a good leads with her list, and I make huge sales. You can check HERE .

A proper check and review will be done, and now heading to opened my PayPal account in Nigeria. Will I be able to open my PayPal account without issues? Is PayPal ready to deal with Nigeria Even?

 Thanks for taking your time to read this post.
