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.
