How To Create A PayPal Account In Ghana


PayPal is a strict company, don't use It for fraud because when one reports you for chargeback, They won't mind limiting your account. 

Again do not log in to your PayPal account on different devices and IPs. Always login with the same IP or device to avoid them detecting you as a fraudster and placing limitations on your account. 

However,  when your account gets limited, you can upload a screenshot of your Votes ID or Passport as proof, and they will lift the ban. So, use a valid address when signing up for an account. Also, never use any form of proxy/VPN. Maintain your Ghana IP address.
