    Pls sir, when PayPal in Nigeria is restricted in receiving money in Nigeria and many of online payments were using PayPal for their payment method to pay their clients. Is it international PayPal account will be needed for the transaction or is there any other means of receiving money apart from PayPal?
    Kindly explain, I will be looking forward for your feedback. Thanks…

      Ensure you have little funds on the card. If it doesn’t work still, call your bank to activate your card for international transactions.
