Paypal Cameroon Available: How to create an Account

Paypal Cameroon Available : How to create a verified Paypal Account

Paypal Cameroon Available Now. Paypal has finally arrived Cameroon, Nigeria and some other African Countries, excluding Ghana. It is useful for Cameroonians who want to do online Payments.

Internet users in Cameroon have been wishing for this expected move from Paypal some years ago. But this expansion therefore seems to be meeting their pressing need but with still limits…

Paypal is being very careful as it moves in slow steps. This first phase of coverage will only enable Cameroonians receive money and make Payments online – no withdrawal possibility yet.

What this means is you can’t transfer funds from your Cameroonian Paypal account to any Bank Account anywhere in the world. So for the moment, money is moving in one direction only which is out of Cameroon. Which seems not good for the economic situation of the country.

Most recommended card is the UBA Africard. This helps you verify your Paypal account and buy more stuffs online. My experience with VISA cards from other local banks has not been encouraging. So if you are in Cameroon and happy about the new development, go get UBA Africard, BICCEC VISA, Afriland VISA, etc to be complete.

Paypal Cameroon limitations are:

You cannot fund your Cameroonian Paypal account.

This does not mean Cameroonians with $0 Paypal account balance can’t buy online. Absolutely they can and this is what you have to do:

1.  Verify your Paypal account with a Debit/credit card.

2. Deposit funds in your card.

3. Then do payments through Paypal.

Paypal will bypass your Paypal account balance, collect funds from your card and do the payment on your behalf.

How to verify your Cameroon Paypal Account

A verified Paypal account is an account that has no limit on amount transacted within a month. While to verify a US Paypal account is still a hard task, verifying a Cameroonian Paypal account is very simple.

To completely lift the limit on any US account, you need to validate your address (provide utility bills), ID (provide ID card, Passport, Drivers License) , attache a bank account, link a credit card, submit your social security number, etc. You see this is quite of a job.

If you remove your card or close your account during the time frames above, the return of the credit may not process. In these instances, you may need to contact PayPal Customer Service to have the charge refunded.

Why was my credit card denied?

To help protect your account, PayPal uses a complex screening process for credit card payments. This helps prevent lost or stolen cards from being used for unauthorized transactions. On rare occasions, the screening process affects valid cards.

A credit card might also be denied if:

1. The card issuer is having technical problems that prevent authorization of a transaction.
2. The card issuer sees a charge that doesn’t fit your normal spending patterns and blocks the transaction to protect you.
3. You’ve inadvertently exceeded the limit on your card.

If you know that your credit card is valid but your payment doesn’t go through, you might want to:

1. Contact your credit card issuer directly. Ask why your card was declined, and whether you can still use it. If you can still use your card, please try your transaction again.
2. Pay securely online using your bank account. You can link your bank account to your PayPal account in just a few minutes. The merchant never sees your financial or other personal information.
3. Link a different credit card to your PayPal account.

Paypal Banks in cameroon?
