Hi friend! I have made an extensive explanation about the types of Paypal there are and how to create them. You can check the article here
If you are in a country where Paypal is banned like Nigeria, you may have a hard time using your account for making online payments. Hence, I have brought you the solution.
To use a Paypal account in Nigeria, there are several methods, but I will only be divulging one in this post.
Are you ready?
As a Nigerian, it is possible to create a Lesothoal account. Here are the steps to follow:
Step 1: Check Eligibility
Before creating a Lesotho account, you need to check if you are eligible. Currently, PayPal is only available to businesses and individuals in Lesotho who have a Lesotho-registered business and a Lesotho bank account. If you have a Lesotho bank account, then you are eligible to create a Lesotho account.
Step 2: Use a VPN
To create a Lesotho PayPal account, you will need to use a virtual private network (VPN) to change your IP address to a Lesotho IP address. This is necessary because PayPal checks the IP address of the user creating the account to ensure that they are located in Lesotho. You can use a free or paid VPN to do this. Although, in my personal experience using this, I have not used VPN and it worked.
Step 3: Go to the PayPal Website
Once you have connected to a Lesotho IP address, go to the PayPal website at www.paypal.com. Click on the “Sign Up” button on the top right-hand side of the screen. If you did not use VPN, go to this link
Step 4: Choose Your Account Type
Choose between a Personal or Business account, depending on your needs. If you are planning to use PayPal for personal transactions like shopping online or sending and receiving money from friends and family, choose the Personal account. If you are planning to use PayPal for business transactions, choose the Business account.
Step 5: Fill in Your Personal Information
Fill in your personal information, including your name, email address, and a secure password. Use a strong password that includes a combination of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols.
Step 6: Add Your Address
Add a Lesotho address as your address details. This is important for verification purposes and also allows you to receive physical products that you may purchase online.
Step 7: Link Your Lesotho Bank Account
To be able to receive payments, you will need to link your Lesotho bank account to your PayPal account. This enables you to transfer funds in and out of your account and also allows you to pay for purchases online.
Step 8: Confirm Your Email Address
After filling in all the required information, PayPal will send a confirmation email to the email address you provided during the sign-up process. Click on the link in the email to confirm your email address.
Step 9: Complete the Verification Process
To ensure the security of your account, PayPal may require you to complete a verification process. This may involve confirming your identity, linking your bank account, or providing additional documentation.
Step 10: Start Using Your Lesotho PayPal Account
Once your account is set up and verified, you can start using your Lesotho PayPal account to send and receive payments, shop online, and access a range of other features.
So how do you withdraw?
There are two options if you want to get your money from Paypal

By following the steps outlined above, you can create a Lesotho PayPal account and start taking advantage of the many benefits it offers.
