I get messages from friends on how to easily create a PayPal account in Ghana. In this newsletter, I am not going to talk about why Ghana among other countries has been ignored on PayPal. All I am going to talk about is a way to open an account with PayPal in Ghana or any country that has been removed. You’ll learn a lot about PayPal Ghana as you read along.

PayPal is an online payment service that allows individuals and businesses to transfer funds electronically. Here are some of the things you might use PayPal for:
- Send or receive payments for online auctions at eBay and other Web sites
- Purchase or sell goods and services
- Make or receive donations
- Exchange cash with someone
Most People will go like, it is unlawful to own a PayPal Account in Ghana. What I usually tell them is, in case you are in Togo or Nigeria, and it’s legal for you to own a PayPal Account, then, in the same way, it is legal to own one in Ghana. I can be a Togolese or Nigeria and be residing in Ghana at the moment. Does that forestall me from using my PayPal account when I have one? Absolutely not. PayPal took away Ghana and other countries for their own security reasons, not because of the illegality of persons using it in those countries.

While creating a PayPal account, you want to have a billing address. One advantage of PayPal to Ghanaians is that PayPal does not confirm your account with your billing address, not even with your cell phone number. It verifies with your email account only. Consequently, you need a valid email address to verify or spark off your account.
