I am going t be talking about a very interesting topic today on how to create a PayPal account in Nigeria so you can send and receive funds.
So Paypal is an American company operating a worldwide online payment system that supports online money transfers. It serves as an electronic alternative to traditional paper methods like checks and money orders.
Paypal was introduced and started its services in Nigeria in the year 2014 but typically there are few limitations to its services.

I have also been receiving a lot of comments and questions about this from people who are into online businesses which have only Paypal as a payment method.
