Paypal Account

Paypal as we all know is the largest online payment processor. Virtually every internet marketer owns and operates a Paypal account. This is simply because Paypal has gained popularity over the years and most people prefer to pay their clients through them. This has made the competition very tough for other payment processors who even have a better platform and a wider acceptability and coverage than Paypal.

Paypal has its own disadvantages too. Not all countries are supported by paypal due to one reason or the other. Paypal has not given any reason for delisting some countries. This has frustrated online business, with many internet marketers left with no option than to quit or receive their payments through a third party in the supported countries. Below is the list of paypal unsupported countries.  

Cocos (Keeling) Islands,
Tromelin Island,
 Coral Sea Islands,
 Heard Island and McDonald Islands,
 Navassa Island,

 Cote d’Ivoire,

Nice one, I know one day is coming when Nigeria is gonna be accepted

I'm not sure when this was compiled. However, I can tell you, it is WRONG! The following are Paypal approved, accepted and used: American Samoa, US Virgin Islands, Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, as well as ALL other US Protectorates. I live in the CNMI and have lived and conducted business ONLINE through Paypal with these areas for more than 2 years, the entire length of time I have lived here. I even spoke directly to Paypal to switch my old USA mainland address to here. Huh, still no problems. Since they are all recognized by the US Postal Service and retain US zip codes, it is the same as sending US mail from Maine to California, with the single exception of a CN22 Customs Declaration Form.

i agree with you 15th Parallel some of the country listed above are paypal supported. http://9jaours.com
