Zimbabwe Remember there was a time when Paypal didn’t work at all in any of these countries, Nigeria was banned for many years, a lot of fraud came out of Ghana, Ivory Coast and Nigeria, but things have changed, you can at the very least use your debit card to pay for services online in the equivalent of your currency. Some countries however till might not be able to withdraw money they’ve made to their bank account, due to local banking restrictions.

  1. Please include Ghana. Since you have your own security restrictions to prevent fraud in these transactions, there are genuine people who use cards that you can trust on pay-pal. It’s very frustrating not to be able to use your debit or credit card for transactions. I believe the number of people with credit card are not that many anyway that pay-pal cannot handle transactions. I have a pay-pal account in other currency but I live in Ghana and therefore my funds is in Ghana and I would like the flexibility of using my money. Thank you
