How to create a Lesotho PayPal account in Nigeria

  • First of all, go to https://www.paypal.com/ls/webapps/mpp/merchant and ensure that the page finishes loading.
  • After that, click SIGN UP or GET STARTED anyhow the case may be.
  • On the next page, fill in your email, most preferably, the email that has not been used to create a PayPal account before and click the next button.
  • On the next page, you will be asked to fill in your personal information, kindly do that and ensure that you change the country’s phone number from Lesotho to Nigeria’s +234, then type your mobile number.
  • As for the currency, leave it as “USD Dollars” then click Agree and Continue.

On the next page, you will be asked to provide some information about your business, on the drop-down menu select Individual as your business type. The next part is the tricky part, this stage is where you will be asked to provide a means of verification for your identity. Click the drop-down button and from the menu, select how you want to verify your identity. If you choose to verify your identity via a National ID Card, you can simply write down your ID number on the blank space. If you choose to use a Passport or Drivers’ Licence, you will still need to do the same thing.

After doing all of that, put in your Date Of Birth (D.O.B) and click the SUBMIT button. You have successfully created your PayPal account and you will now need to verify your PayPal account by going to the inbox of the email address that you provided during the signup process.

This PayPal account that you have successfully created is a Lesotho PayPal account that you can use to send and receive funds right here in Nigeria. You can mainly sell the PayPal funds to people, I must put a disclaimer notice though, there are scammers out there that can scam you, so, I will allow you to contact me via this page that is if you want to sell your PayPal funds so that I can help you get a legit buyer.

However, you can try to link your card to your PayPal account to see if you can withdraw your PayPal funds directly to your bank account. Not many cards can be linked to a Lesotho PayPal account, so I’ll recommend you try linking a First Bank MasterCard or a UBA AfriCard to the PayPal account. Many individuals have claimed that it worked. If you can link a card to your PayPal account, you can be halfway sure that you will be able to withdraw the PayPal fund directly to your bank account.
