How To Create A Verified PayPal Account In Ghana [2020]

PayPal is an American company operating a worldwide online payments system that supports online money transfers and serves as an electronic alternative to traditional paper methods like checks and money orders (Wikipedia).
Despite its worldwide usage, some countries are blacklisted to use PayPal for online business transactions, and Ghana is not an exception. I have been using PayPal in Ghana for many years with no restrictions and I want to share my experience with you on how to create and use a verified PayPal account in Ghana. Please follow every step in this guide and create a successful PayPal account today.



  1. UBA Africard (Visa)
  2. First Name: Myfirstname
  3. Last Name: Mysurname
  4. Email Address: myemailaddress@gmail.com
  5. Business Name: Forzes
  6. Phone Number: 0123456789
  7. Date of Birth: Month/Day/Year (06/28/1900)
  8. Voter ID/Passport Number: 123456789
  9. Billing Address: This is normally found on ur utility (light) bill, e.g. St1-Obuasi-
    Since Ghana is not listed amongst the countries supported by PayPal, we will use a different country’s address. In this case, we will use Kenya. This won’t cause any trouble. TRUST ME! If you want to avoid troubles, don’t login to your PayPal account on different devices and IPs. Always login with the same IP or device to avoid PayPal detecting you as a fraudster and placing limitations on your account. However, should something happen and PayPal attempts to limit your account, you can upload screenshot of your address as proof to them and they will
    lift the ban so please try and use a valid address when signing up account. Also, never use any proxy, maintain your Ghana IP address.
