How to Open a US Account in Nigeria
As we mentioned above Nigeria paypal account a restricted to only make payment online and can’t be able to receive payment. In other for you to your paypal account in receiving payment you definitely need to open a verify us Account. On this article i will be showing you how to open a USA verified paypal account that receive money from all over the world. By following the steps below your USA paypal account will be working in 20 while you are here in Nigeria.
The method we are going to use is payoneer, in case you don’t know what payoneer means. Payoneer is a USA account that you can open right here in Nigeria, in order to have account with payoneer, you will just visit their website register and they will ship their ATM card to you, with that ATM card you can withdraw in Nigeria bank ATM machine, the good thing is that the ATM card is totally free. If you don’t have payoneer US account yet then register payooner account here and get $25 instantly upon registration.
After registration, payoneer will send you your ATM card within two weeks.
Now let get started, i’m assuming that you have your payoneer ATM card with you now, if you haven’t then bookmark this page or save the link to come back and continue when you receive your ATM card.
What you need:
- A working email address
- An active working Payoneer US virtual Bank Account
- USA Citizen Profile
- A VPN (Any VPN that can change your ip to a steady US IP address)
Now let move on, as i mentioned above am assuming you already have a Payoneer account else visit Payoneer and create your Payoneer account. Payoneer will give you your US Payment Service details such as Bank Name, Account Number, Routing Number and Account Type.
You will see all your account details when you hover your mouse over the “receive Payments” menu option and clicking on the “My US Payment Service Profile” on your Payoneer account dashboard. All this details is what you will use to verifying your US Paypal account.
Now we need to generate a fake unique US profile that paypal will accept, this fake US profile that we are going to generate will have Unique US Phone Number, unique US house address, unique US zip code. to generate fake profile go to fakenamegenerator.com Sign in using your Google+ account. Click on the gender and select your gender (Male or Female), leave Name empty and select ‘American’ as Country or set it to United States and click on the ‘Generate’ button to generate a US citizen profile.
Wait the net page to load, when the US citizen profile has been generated, you just have to click on ‘Save this name’button to save the profile with your Google+ which will also save to your gmail account so you can provide same profile if ever Paypal requires it in the future for any form of confirmation.How I opened and verified a USA Paypal in nigeria
Now open your notepad and write down the Address, Zip code, Phone Number and SSN from the generated profile, you can write it on a pies of paper. The name won’t be needed though since you will be opening the account on your own name used on your payoneer.
Then make sure your VPN is up and running well, I use premium, i recommend using a premium freedom VPN though and always be ensure to use ONLY USA server address. So i personally recommend to always use ems01.your-freedom.de on the VPN because that is their US server address. You can use ip2location.com to confirm your IP location.
Now visit Paypal.com and click on the Sign Up link. Choose your US as your Country or region and select ‘PayPal for you’ and click on the ‘Get Started’ button. Then fill the rest of the form and ensure to use the same names you used on your Payoneer account on Paypal as well.
Use the address, phone number and Zip code you got from the fake generated profile. To complete the registeration a verification link will be emailed to your email.
Click on ‘Activate’ button on the email sent to you to start the activation of your Paypal account. You will be asked how you will prefer to verify your Paypal account either via Credit Card or Bank Account.
Since you already have a US Bank Account via Payoneer, choose the Bank Account verification option and add your Payoneer US Bank Account details on the given form, such as Bank Name, Routing Number, Account Number etc.
Paypal will then verify your US bank account by depositing two little amounts less than a dollar each to your Payoneer bank account. You will be required to correctly enter the exact amount Paypal deposited on your Payoneer on your Paypal account to finally verify and activate your Paypal account. It takes 2-3 days to verify Paypal account.
Once the US Bank Account has been verified your Paypal will be activated and you can start using it to receive fund and make payments online.
