To create a Paypal account from a restricted country you have to create a verifiable e-commerce profile. A verifiable e-commerce profile is a profile that is allowed, verifiable and does not break the Terms of Use of Paypal and most e-commerce services. 

If your country is restricted and you go ahead using your details to create a Paypal account, if you ever get banned on that Paypal account, you’ll not be able to restore that account because you’d be breaking Paypal Terms of Use in the first place even though the details are yours and accurate. If on the other hand, you use fake details in opening the Paypal account, you’ll not be able to verify your identity when necessary if your account ever gets temporarily banned or if Paypal ever requires you to verify your identity.

You need to link a debit card that is issued by a bank in a country where Paypal is not restricted.

For most countries, you need to be physically present to get a debit card and if you have an ecommerce business registered online in Canada , the USA, Or other unrestricted country, You will need to have a business partner who resides in that country to apply for and get a debit card for the business.

In Canada most banks require that the business Partner must have majority shares in the business and reside in Canada.

The easier way to get a Paypal debit card that is issued from a bank in a country where Paypal is not restricted such as the USA, Canada etc Is is open a foreign account online via Wise.

To withdraw from Paypal to Wise; link your Wise debit card to Paypal, withdraw funds from Paypal to your Wise debit card.

To cash out the funds in your Wise debit card; link your domiciliary account in your home country to Wise then transfer money from Wise to your Domiciliary account, where you can then withdraw at your local bank.

This process may sound daunting but is worth it because you can use the Wise debit card to both verify your Paypal account and withdraw money from Paypal from a restricted country. You’ll be able to withdraw dollars in cash and can exchange it at the black market for the best exchange rate. 

In summary, here are the steps to take if you want to withdraw money on Paypal from a restricted country. In this example; a Nigeria domiciliary bank account; 

  1. Create a verifiable e-commerce profile and open a Paypal Canada business account using a strong VPN like Nord VPN.
  2. Open a Wise account and apply to get a Canada business bank account details.
  3. Pay the application fee on Wise which is about CA$30. Note that you can’t pay this fee with your Nigeria card, so you’ll need to use the card of perhaps a friend or family member that lives in Canada, UK, US, Australia or other countries accepted for payment on Wise.
  4. Verify your Identity on Wise using your Nigeria international passport or New Nigeria National ID card (Wise does not accept the Nigeria National Identity slip)
  5. Get the Wise Virtual debit card details on your Wise dashboard and link it to your Paypal account.
  6. Open a domiciliary Nigeria account and link it to your Wise account for dollar withdrawals. Tip if you don’t have a domiciliary Nigeria account, you can open one for just 2,000 naira in GTBank by opening both a Naira and a Dollar account at any GTBank branch.
