Reasons Why You Must Not Use PayPal For Your Internet Transactions

Reasons Why You Must Not Use PayPal For Your Internet Transactions
When I first tried buying something online, I saw PayPal as one of my payment options.
I joyfully hopped into PayPal to go and create an account which I did successfully, then could pay. I was so happy for this. I paid and then the blah blah blah. Now it was time to get some money from my clients, I had done some freelance jobs and it was time to collect my money, then I saw pepper. It was when I found out that they had banned some countries like Nigeria, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Cote D'Ivoire (Ivory Coast), Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea), Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Ghana, Haiti, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Liberia, Libya, Monaco, Moldova, Montenegro, Myanmar, Pakistan, Paraguay, Saint Lucia, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, Timor-Leste, Uzbekistan and Zimbabwe, etc. 
I come from one of these countries so does that mean that my I have been banned from birth from carrying out online transactions? It's so sad of them and I really don't like it. Now when you want to force yourself to do that, you have to carry out some hacks just to receive your money. I learnt one of these hacks and even wrote an e-book about it [you can contact me for that] and it was selling because people were really frustrated online because of these restrictions. I didn't even offer the book for instant downloads to make sure that it doesn't get into the wrong hands. 

Disclaimer: This post is for countries that are not presently accepted or have been banned by PayPal, if yours has not been, then you can move on with it. PayPal is currently the most popular payment method but it's never the best! I only intend stopping the various hacks and frauds people pass through when using PayPal because their countries are not accepted. Why should you change ip address each time you wanna withdraw your funds? Yet still you stand a chance of loosing those funds if you are detected.
Now after sometime my friend was caught, and his account contacted some issues though I don't know of the outcome later. I really was hiding and never left above some specific amount of money in the PayPal. At a stage I started hearing of some mismanagement with PayPal. People were loosing
Why should you use something that doesn't allow all countries? What if you needed to do some transactions with citizens of those country? 
their accounts at the slightest offences and it was really disheartening. You can see an example in the screenshot below, that was an issue I saw during my researches on Quora. You can click the image to view the source. 
The guy's account was banned because the suspected some activities and later released it though. 

I have seen other cases like that of Schockergd on Reddit whom they held his over $70,000 for no good reasons. I'll limit my researches to these since that's not what we are discussing mainly.

The best is that some will even pay you directly into your bank account if you don't have a Master Card and some will give you a Master Card so you don't go through the huddles of linking your credit card to them. Why stick to PayPal just because they are the oldest or something? they don't even have a Master Card.


This is also widely loved by people because it also offers an option for the Master Card. You will not need a bank account to cash out your money if you use this option or better still use the other one. 
Everyone can use their Master Card, or skip the annual maintenance fees attached to the Master card by using the other method of Payoneer. You can sign up for Payoneer here.


Skrill.com is my best alternative to PayPal. They are also old and have been around for close to a decade. They have no bad story or better said, I have heard none.
You can cash out your money on time and into your bank account if you would prefer that. You can sign up for Skrill here. Just make sure to fill in your correct bank details so you won' experience any delays in cashing out your funds. You can order their Master Card if that will serve you better.


PayZa.com is another great option. It was formerly known as AlertPay. It's similar to PayPal and another great option. People love it too because it pays on time and you don't go through struggles cashing out your funds.

Apart from this three, you still have other great choices though I haven't tried them yet. They include: 

Google Wallet
Money Bookers
Braintree Payments
Stripe etc 

There are so many others so why kill yourself for PayPal? If your client can accept any, simply sign up with that and collect your money. If clients insist on PayPal, explain yourself to them very well and let them know that it was your countries' fraud and not yours. 
At worst, you can contact me for your e-book on how to set up and verify a normal PayPal account in any country of your choice. If that isn't ok for you, then hire us to do that for you at a very cheap rate. Thanks for reading along.
