Please note that to access this URL from Nigeria, you need a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to use a US location. You can get Windscribe VPN free of charge but for an itch-free process, I will suggest you get a premium Nord VPN, t cost about $11.95 per month. If you cannot afford that, you can contact me to share my 1-year plan with me.

Input a fresh email address and your password for your US PayPal.

You should use a fresh email address that has never been registered to any US Paypal or any other country PayPal account. Also input your preferred password (remember it’s the password that you will be using on the account going forward, so please take note of it).

You should get a notepad and record every of your US PayPal registration details as you progress with the PayPal signup process.

You should fill the three major segments of this section properly. It includes your business contact, business details, and business address.

Business Contact: this includes your legal names such as your first name and last name.

Biz Details: this includes your business name, type, and URL

Biz Address: this includes your business location, street, and zip.

To get the above details to open a US PayPal account in Nigeria, you will need to get pseudonyms for the entire process. However, you can retain basic identifier information about you such as your legal name.

In this segment of your US PayPal account opening process, you should describe your business type, your product and service, your monthly sales, and your an optional website URL.

If you are just a freelancer without a registered business, I suggest you use the name on your freelancer’s profile. For example, for this Fiverr profile Marta_Click, you could enter Marta_click as your business name ( i think this is most useful for the third step above).

For this section, you should say your business is an individual business. Please use this option if your business is truly not registered but if it’s registered and you feel you have all the document, only then, you can try other options.

Proceed to tell them about the product or service that your business offers.

Then select the range of sales you get, I am not sure of the cycle, if it’s daily, weekly, monthly or yearly. But you can choose an option depending on the volume of sales you get from your business.

I think that will affect the additional detail they might need from you including your limit.

Tell PayPal more about you: your SSN, date of birth and home address.

This is where PayPal want to be sure you’re really from the US. Thanks to technology that has bridged the gap. You can get this data online including your SSN online.
