Shortly after I wrote a post on how to open a PayPal account that sends and receives funds in Nigeria, it was clear to me that just having a PayPal account with funds in it and then starting to scout for PayPal exchangers shouldn’t be the end of my PayPal trend. Beyond writing for anyone’s consumption, as a freelancer, I wanted to know how to get more value for my money.
Instead of looking and finally finding an exchanger who will arrogantly underprice my hard-earned PayPal funds at un-dignifying rates, I wanted more. So I started searching for a more dignifying way to exchange my PayPal funds such that I can get more value of every cent that I earn.
This search led me to uncovering the idea of using the UBA Africard PayPal back in 2019. UBA Africard is a prepaid card that works like a wallet. You simply add this card to your Lesotho PayPal account and it enables you withdraw from it to your Nigerian or Ghana UBA bank.

Step 1: How to open a Lesotho PayPal in Nigeria
Register & Verify a Lesotho PayPal account
Like How to Open a PayPal Account in Nigeria that Send and Receive Funds in 2019, you would need to signup for a PayPal account but with this link paypal.com/ls.
You can visit the web address with your Nigerian computer. You do not need a VPN or Hyonix VPS for this.
Just make sure that you type exactly the web address paypal.com/ls.
Step 2: How to open a Lesotho PayPal in Nigeria
Signup For a Business Account
Note: It is important you choose a business account because you will be using your Nigerian CAC document and your international passport to lift your limit in the future. But if you do not have a CAC document and you are not planning to get one in the future, you can signup for a personal account but you would need to provide a valid utility bill document in Lesotho plus your Nigerian passport. The latter is quite uneasy that is why I recommend the first option.
Step 3: How to open a Lesotho PayPal in Nigeria
Input Your Email
You can complete the signup process from info on this post how to open a PayPal account that sends and receives funds in Nigeria.
Once you have completed the signup process, you will now have to lift your initial limit on your account with a UBA Africard.
To obtain this card, you would need to visit any UBA branch close to you.
Ask the customer rep for a UBA prepaid card, and they will tell you what to do to obtain it.
As at the time of updating this post (May 29, 2021) you can obtain this card with just the basic KYC details, and you can get this even if you do not own a bank account with UBA.
I would recommend you get an account with UBA also.
This is because you would need the app to safely and easily transfer your funds from the prepaid card to your bank account, except you want to use another person’s card
