Ever tried to make or receive payment using PayPal only to realize that Ghana is not included in the approved list of countries? Sucks right? Well not anymore, Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has announced that Ghana has concluded discussions with the well known online payment system.
Speaking at the launch ceremony of the first Mobile Money Payments Interoperability System in Ghana, the Vice President revealed that Ghana will be taken off PayPal’s blacklist by 2020.
In 2004, PayPal blacklisted Ghana, Nigeria and other sub-Saharan countries as a result of high number of credit card fraud. However in 2014, Nigeria was taken off PayPal’s blacklist.
Ghanaians should get ready to set up their PayPal accounts because merchants will be able to receive payments for their goods sold online by 2019 and by the first half of 2020, Ghanaians can also make payments for goods and services purchased online using their PayPal account.
