With each subsequent year, more and more people are adopting PayPal as their preferred mode of payment. Well, this doesn’t come as a surprise since PayPal is among the easiest system to use, is instant and protects both the buyer and seller from fraudulent activities. A day doesn’t go by without getting a query on how one can sign up for a PayPal account in Kenya. It is actually quite easy to register for an account, almost as easy as opening a Facebook account, below we are going to outline some of the steps required to create a PayPal account in Kenya.
Step by step how to create a PayPal account in Kenya;
- Visit the official PayPal website
Always do this by manually typing the website url to the browser rather than clicking links that may not be the official site https://www.paypal.com/ke/home
Don’t use a VPN connection when you want to create a PayPal account in Kenya as it may alter your location.
- Fill in your details
On the sign up for an account page, you will be provided with 2 options for an account. Either the Premier/Personal account or business accounts choose accordingly in line with the intended use for the account. A premier account displays your official names while a business account is more suitable for accounts meant to receive payments for a business.
You will be provided with fields where you need to input your info, please regard PayPal as your bank account and thus only enter REAL info, don’t use nicknames or false info as this could get your account terminated.
Remember to create a strong password and confirm your account through a link sent to your primary email (email attached to your PayPal account), you can verify your account using either a MasterCard/Visa card although this isn’t really necessarily until after a while.
