How to setup PayPal account in unsupported countries?

Many people question whether it is risky to use PayPal in countries that do not support it. Note that although PayPal's personal account is not supported in different countries, its business account can be used in almost all countries. Here, I will discuss the two methods of How to Use PayPal in Banned Countries.

How to use PayPal in unsupported countries (method one)

If you want to use PayPal in unsupported countries, please follow the steps below carefully

Remember, like any proper guide, it's always a good idea to list the things we'll need to execute this operation.

What are the requirements?

Be aware that, for this to work well, please prepare the following before proceeding to the next section;

International passport

An active email address

A phone number

physical address

Suppose you have everything. So now that you have everything, let's open the door to PayPal, shall we?

Step One – Go to the PayPal URL in your computer browser

PayPal usually provides a separate dashboard for each country. So to create a valid PayPal account in an invalid country, we need to change the default URL that we are redirected to when we visit PayPal's website.

To achieve this, see the link;

Wait for the redirect; You will now see a URL similar to this in your browser's address bar;

Now, change your “COUNTRY-CODE” in the PayPal URL to “is” (in step 2 of the image), then press ENTER. This will redirect you to the PayPal Iceland homepage.

Step Two – Sign up with PayPal

change your “COUNTRY-CODE” in the PayPal URL to “is”

Now click the "Sign Up" button on the top right corner of PayPal's homepage to register an account. You can also complete the register by "Sign up for free".

The page will open as below.

PayPal Account type

From here you have to choose a business account, then click Continue. This will take you to an email form. Enter your valid, and active email address to proceed.

After entering your email address, it will take you to a signup page and you will be asked for your additional details.

Fill the signup form with your details and click continue. Remember to enter your correct information here.

It's also worth mentioning that you can use a fake address or fake phone number without any problems, but we don't recommend it. We always recommend providing accurate information. Because with it you will transact money.

Remember that if you intend to defraud people by creating a fake PayPal account, you'll get caught, that's for sure! I am very serious about this, and you should not try it at all.

You may have a little trouble bypassing the postal code. You can use any of the following to get to the next step: 760, 765, 310, 620, or 820.

Select your country in phone number and enter your mobile number. Use your local address instead.

Click "Continue" to proceed to the next step.

Step Three - Business Information

Here, you will fill in more details about your business. For Business Type, choose whatever applies to your business, but since it's not completely valid, go with "Private".

details about your business. For Business Type

Now you have to choose a business category that suits your business and enter your business website in the given cell, if you have a business website. It is optional.

Remember, account holder information follows next. This is where your international passport or driving license comes into play.

account holder information follows next

This step may vary, as some are asked to upload a scanned copy of their ID, while others are required to input their ID number and date of birth.

Whatever your way, just follow through with it. It's not that serious.

Finally click "Continue" to create your PayPal account.

PayPal Sign up Compleate

Now you will see a page asking to confirm your email address.

Congratulations! You now have an active PayPal account created in an unsupported country.

How is a card linked to a PayPal account?

You can add any card to your PayPal account that has a MasterCard or VISA logo on it Most of them work well for this verification. To do this from your PayPal dashboard, click Add a new card and input your card details.

You will then receive two small charges under $2 from PayPal. This can take anywhere from 24 hours to several weeks. This charge will come with a code on your card's transaction history, and this code will be used by PayPal to verify your card.

Once this is done, you will receive an email saying that your restrictions have been removed, but are they really removed for good?

What is PayPal account limit removal?

Although you have received the mail that the limit has been removed, still want to warn you about my limit. Because PayPal has security measures in place to reduce fraud, you should keep in mind that each new account has a $3,400+ annual sending limit.

To remove this limit, you need a valid bank account in your country (Iceland) to do so (you can open an account here from a relative or friend).

Many, however, use Payoneer's checking bank account to remove the limit. It is important to note here that Payoneer has different methods for opening a checking bank account and accepting payments.

So, if you have Euro acceptance account details in Pioneer, you will get an I bank account in Iceland, with which you can remove the PayPal limit.

This may be a problem for you though. But I have heard of many people using it. You can try.

If you do not have a Pioneer account, you can open a Pioneer account for PayPal verification. You will get a $25 bonus when you open an account at Pioneer on someone's referral. See how to get a 25 dollar bonus at Pioneer?

You can also get a bank account in Iceland through Wise online payment service. Wise offers local bank accounts in different countries, which you can use with PayPal.

How to Use PayPal in Banned Countries (Method 2)

According to SpendMenot, PayPal has 361 million active users. And it accounts for more than 22% of online transactions in the US. But chances are, you might be living in a country where PayPal isn't available.

So, how to set up a PayPal account in unsupported countries? This has been discussed above. Here is another step-by-step process that you need to follow:

In this method you can use PayPal account using address, mobile number in United States or any country supported by PayPal.

All you need to do is to open PayPal account using proxy.

Why set up VPN proxy?

Different people may have different ideas about VPN, so whatever your experience and thoughts about it, you should know that getting and setting up a proxy is not as complicated as it seems. If you're not sure why this is necessary at first, know that it will allow you to show PayPal that you're located in the United States (a PayPal supported country.)

You can find different VPNs just by searching on Google. But the VPN service I personally use and always recommend for e-commerce purposes is called IPBurger. You can open PayPal account using this.

IPBurger has several plans, but the basic one will come in handy as it lets you get a new proxy for your business without breaking the bank.

So, now that you've purchased your IPBurger plan, it's time to set it up in your Chrome browser, and I'm going to help you out next.

In your Chrome browser, create a new profile and name it whatever you want. This could be "Payment Gateway", "PayPal", "Stripe", or your "Business Name".

Many people may have many opinions about using a VPN. Some consider it insecure. However, it is important to note that free VPN proxies are not secure.

Create online bank account

A bank account is required to be able to receive, send and withdraw money from your PayPal account, it should be verified and also pass a security check.

Remember, your PayPal account cannot be verified unless you link a bank account to it! So you can get a foreign bank account by opening Payoneer or Wise account.

Don't forget, you need to make sure you are always connected to the VPN whenever you are accessing anything related to your business or banking accounts.

Create a PayPal business account

Now open a PayPal business account as above. Add online bank account once the account is opened. You can use Pioneer Master Card to add Visa or Master Card. 

There are also many Visa or Master cards available online that can be used to verify PayPal accounts.

How to withdraw your PayPal funds

You can transfer PayPal funds to your online bank account. For this, go to the PayPal dashboard and transfer your PayPal balance to your bank account.

From the online bank account you can bring it to the local bank of your country easily. Pioneer or Wis can transfer money to banks in almost all countries of the world.

One more method can be used, but this method is not completely valid as we are probably breaking some rules on PayPal's terms page.

The usual way to withdraw funds is to link your bank account to your PayPal account and wait for PayPal to clear the funds within a few hours or days.

But since it's not really legal, what I'll discuss now is the wrong approach, so the workaround is to trade PayPal funds for cash, gift cards, or go to an exchange forum to buy Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency.

One of the best ways to get your money into a bank account is to trade your PayPal funds for crypto on P2P exchange sites. And Paxful is the best place to do it.

If you don't know what Paxful is. Paxful is a peer-to-peer Crypto marketplace that connects buyers with sellers.

You simply select your preferred payment method and type in how many bitcoins you want in exchange for your PayPal funds and you pay with your PayPal balance.

Once your PayPal funds are converted to Bitcoin, simply sell the Bitcoin to someone in your country and receive full cash in your bank account.

Your money will be safely held in escrow until you confirm your funds in your bank account or vice versa.

Note: Always check the rating of a Paxful buyer before opening a trade.

That's why it is.
