Paypal is an online wallet that is extensively used all over the world for international transactions. Unfortunately, Pakistan is not listed among the supported countries of Paypal which is a big limitation and problem for Pakistani freelancers and online working. If you have a great on-line opportunity and the only thing that is blocking your path is inability to use Paypal in Pakistan, you do not have to worry now. Following the simple instructions given below, you can configure a Paypal account to use in Pakistan.
Necessity is the mother of invention. Whenever someone has felt a need of something in their life, they have invented it. We are living in an advanced era where there is no such thing as impossible. Payoneer is another company like Paypal that provides People with a free US account number that can be used for online transactions. We, the Pakistanis can create a Paypal account, but cannot use Pakistani bank details as they do not get accepted. What if we use US ban details provided to us by Payoneer? Isn’t it cool? Wait, If you are thinking its a long, costly, time consuming thing, believe me, its NOT.
So, in order to use Paypal in Pakistan, you need to have a working and activated Payoneer account. If you have it, that’s great. If you do not have it, click here to know how to get your free Payoneer master card.
1- Open www.paypal.com and create account using easy step by step procedure. You do not have to create account by your name or address. However, make sure you use your own email address.
2- Use fakenamegenerator.com to pick name, date of birth, address and all the required details to create a fake account on Paypal. Do not go for US as a country because they will ask you to enter National Tax Number or SSN which is verified as well. You can choose UK, Canada, Australia, Russia etc.
3- Once you have created your account, you will be asked to verify it via email. You can verify it and your account will be ready to use. However, you will not be able to use that account until you add a payment method.
4- There are 2 payment methods to add, either a card or account. Select Bank account and enter the details of your US bank account provided to you by Payoneer. Here is a detailed way to do it.
Go to your Payoneer portal and Click on US payment Service.
After clicking you will see Name of bank, Bank account number, Routing Number and account title.
Now go to Paypal and add a bank account as payment receiving method. It will ask you to enter Name of bank, Bank account number, Routing Number and account title. Use the details provided by Payoneer here and click “Add method”.
5- Once you do it, Paypal will ask you to wait for 2-3 days to verify your payment method. In the meanwhile, Paypal will send two small amounts to your Payoneer bank account. It will take around 2-3 days. You need to keep checking your Payoneer to see if you received any amounts from Paypal. Once you receive them, note down both amounts exactly. I received $0.98 and $2.02.
6- Once you get the amounts, login to your Paypal. On the main home page, you will see a button saying “Verify your account”. Click on that button.
7- It will take you to the page where you will be asked to enter the two amounts. Enter the amounts as it is and click Verify.
8- If everything went well, your account will be verified instantly and you can enjoy the perks of having a Paypal account in Pakistan 🙂
