Published: May 9, 2021

PayPal is an e-commerce corporation that uses an online transaction system to let you pay for things with a secure internet account.

Users may link their PayPal accounts to their own bank accounts, which makes transfers and payments more effective than using money orders or checks.

PayPal has remained a reputable corporation in terms of identity theft protection thanks to a number of advanced security developments.

The business has created a portable key device that needs manual activation before a transfer from a PayPal account is executed, as well as enhanced anti-phishing and anti-hacking capabilities.

In transactions when consumers have been deceived or duped, PayPal allows them to challenge the transaction and receive a refund.

PayPal provides merchants with some limited protection, including a mechanism that disables accounts when suspicious or excessive behaviour is detected.

The firm charges a fee to act as a payment processor for online sellers, sales sites, and a variety of other commercial customers.

Users may use PayPal to make and receive payments for online auctions on sites like eBay, to buy and sell products and services, and to contribute and receive money.

To utilize PayPal’s services, you don’t need to have a PayPal account.

Account settings allow users to customize currency conversion choices.

Subject to credit approval, PayPal Credit provides buyers with an instant online revolving line of credit that they may use at thousands of PayPal-accepting merchants.

PayPal Credit may be used to fund transactions almost anyplace PayPal is accepted. The PayPal app may be downloaded through the iTunes App Store or Google Play.

Users may browse for nearby businesses and restaurants that accept PayPal payments, order ahead at participating venues, and access their PayPal Credit accounts using the PayPal mobile app, which is available for iOS and Android.

PayPal is available in over 200 nations and territories.

PayPal is accepted by Apple at the Apple Store, Apple Music, iTunes, and Apple Books.

The login method for a user account linked to a security key is different. Account-holders input their login ID and password as usual, but are then asked to enter a six-digit code generated by a credit card-sized hardware security key or a text message delivered to their mobile phone.

Users can add the code generated by the hardware key to their password on the login page for convenience. They won’t be asked for it on another page this way.

  1. You have not solved the problem for those of us in Nigeria. Everyone knows this method you explained above.

    1. To access the full functionality of PayPal you can’t do that using a Nigeria PayPal account. You will need someone outside of Nigeria to do that for you.

    1. For now, PayPal does not allow you to receive payment with your Nigerian Paypal account.
      The only option that gives you access to spending online with PayPal is to use Dollar Visa or Mastercard with a domiciliary account.

  2. I thought you was going to show how to open a PayPal that can send and receive money here in Nigeria. But anyway nice article.
