I have answered the question you asked bro. Maybe you didn't understand that I say the solution you need is in Woocomerce.
With Woocomerce, you can accept credit card and bitcoin payment on your store and sell globally.

With woocomerce you will be just fine.
Mr man, stop beating around the bush. Which woocommerce payment gateway is available to Nigerians running internationally?

Point of corrections...

1.Not a matter of Try.. That is what i am currently doing okay.. Abi u wan see my balance ni

2. Dont say wetin u no know okay. Like i been dun talk use your head.

Na the product be the thing.. Product wey go scatter market na ppl go the rush to buy first..
And when you advertise or promote make it ckear your site only accepts bitcoins na dem go pay u... Who doesn't know bitcoins is taking over..
Also u put up a page on your store about how to use bitcoin, signing up, funding wallet, and making payments just like a standard site will do it...

Let this page be in the menu at the header of your site where we have other navigations like catalog... etc thousands already know abt btc those that dont know will read and learn.. Guy!
Why u de dull me...!

Do things well and see the results . Once again na products be am okay

An eCommerce site accepting only BITCOIN? Is a feasible choice if only you sell crypto related products, you target lovers of bitcoin and your payment processor is willing to accept blames when it comes to returns and complaints.

Yes bitcoin is popular, but its anonymous nature does not give room for trust and accountability, added to fluctuations. You spoke about educating your potential buyers of how to make bitcoin transactions. Are you there to educate or make sales? Your visitors sole purpose is to come buy and leave, they have other things doing.

Is advised you only use it as an alternative method else you will have endless -ve ROI

You are lucky but it will only be a matter of time before all accounts with Nigeria addresses and IP are weeded out.

How many days before money is credited to your account?

I won't advice anybody to use 2chexkout. They are a hell of a company! I tried using them early this year, but they stress the hell out of me! Finally, after providing all the documents they requested, they then went ahead and asked for my my website Admin login details. Imagine that? I mean what on earth will make a company want to know the Admin login details of another company that they are not providing hosting for? It was crazy. They deliberately wasted my time and finally turned me down by asking for site's admin login details. What then did I do? Of course I'm yet to get back to them till date. Very terrible company.

Bro, I have tried really hard to let you understand that with woocomerce, you will be just fine running an international e-commerce store from Nigeria. But all you could come up to say is that I'm beating around the bush?

Well, I will just pretend that you didn't say such.

I think you don't understand theory, so I'm going to give you practical.
You need to know that some of us don't just appear from no where to say what we don't know, but that we actually know what's up.

To further convince/prove to you and anybody that Nigerians at home can actually run an international e-commerce store, I've re-activated the store section of my website (in my signature) which I previously deactivated because like I earlier said, I'm not ready for e-commerce now.

I've put up some few items in that store including a DIY US PayPal account guide. If you need a PayPal personal or business account, you can go over to Kikimat Store and order the guide now with your Credit Card or Bitcoin and open your PayPal account by yourself in less than 1hr.

Now, this Kikimat Store is available internationally, and anybody can order from that store from anywhere in the world. Billed in $$$, and is run on Woocomerce. The store accept Bitcoin and all major credit cards including Visa, Mastercard, Discover, AmericanExpress etc

Kikimat is operated from Nigeria by a Nigerian at home and therefore prove beyond any atom of doubt that Nigerians at home can actually run an international e-commerce store.

You will want to ask Google which woocomerce payment gateway is available to Nigerians running internationally?

That's not my concern. I was only concern about your erroneous believe/acertion that Nigerians at home cannot run an international e-commerce store.

They are not a terrible company, they are just doing their job. Nigeria is labeled a bad country, why wont they ask for excess detail? If you can give your hosting company your cpanel details, what's the difference, what the hell will a big company like 2checkout have to do with a small start up, scam you or what? Trust is an issue for every Nigerian, we tend to be extra careful but when that careful tendencies is needed, we relapse.

I spent 2 weeks before they approved me, had to wait for emails from Katy everyday. So much time cos I never knew what they needed. But as it is, if you are applying for them as a new person, I think is no longer possible.

Both of you guys don't get me. If for example, I want to open a drop shipping store on either shopify or woocommerce today, what are my payment options?

I even saw him recommending Us PayPal! Even my worst enemy, I will not advise to use a foreign PayPal account.

Nigeria is limited by the number of payment gateways. The only two I know work here are cashenvoy (30 days funds held) and voguepay (10 days funds held). Is this dropshipping? This means you need to have funds to run an eccomerce platform in Nigeria thus cannot be said to be dropshipping.

I also know a lilttle about stripe atlas where you open a us bank account and register a business before you are put on an international gateway payment.

Summary of all this long English is this; Dropshipping is not suitable for a Nigerian living in Nigeria because your options are seriously limited.

You actually think I'm hiding the product. That's what brought the curiousity that led to the search. Wrong! I'm not hiding the product my brother. My reply when you ask for it was that "I'm not willing to reveal it at this time"

The reason is simple. The product have great money making potencials no doubt. But it have some serious issues to apply it from Nigeria. I'm looking at the time when I might have resolve those issues before revealing the product so that people can make use of it. Right now the product is useless for Nigerians except those issues are resolved. My saying you shouldn't reveal the product was actually a joke. I don't care

So why not reveal the product and other more knowledgeable people can figure out the issue. You are just keeping it to yourself so that you can be the first to exploit it for profit. Nothing wrong with that at all just be honest.

You may be right. But I still think they 2checkout is a terrible company. In fact, very terrible company! In your case it was just 2weeks. My was actually over a whole month! They wasted my time so much, and just about when they were supposed to approve the account after I provided all the docs they ever wanted, they came up with a very silly demand that I should give them my website Admin login details. I actually ignored them instead. Yes, I didn't even bother to reply them again till date. Good a thing, they are not the only option.

The company that host my website already have access to all my files. Infact, they are the one keeping and maintaining the website. So it will make no since to refuse giving them my Cpanel details because they already have access to all my files from their end.
But for a third party like 2checkout to ask for my Admin login details all in the name of processing payment on my website is out of order. I mean who does that? Are they the only payment processor around? Is not about being a new startup or an established company. Is about doing things the way it should be done.

Are you trying to tell me that 2checkout is not a terrible company because my company is a small startup? What if facebook want 2checkout to process their payment? Will you also say that facebook should give 2checkout their Cpanel details since they (facebook) can give their hosting provider their Cpanel details? That's very terrible indeed!
Let's call black, black and white, white.

I'm not against them doing their thing the way they want. But I can't take their effort in wasting someone's time and actually tried to gain into another man's privacy.

We know our situation as Nigerians running online business. If they don't want us, that's fine. But they should be bold enough to say so and save us the unnecessary stress.

I still have my account with them that they are yet to approve due to bad and unrealistic demand. You know what? To hell with 2checkout! I will never ever return to them to complete my application because I have already a good option than is far better than them.

You are right bro. The product is all about FBA (Fulfilment By Amazon) which is not a hidden thing. But operating it from Nigeria is the issue. Now I've revealed it. According to you, let the more Knowledgeable people now figure out how to run it from Nigeria.

This is what I saw on one of the PayPal forums

What PayPal won't tell you in their documentation is that the "pay with my credit or debit card" feature will only work in a standard business account if the person paying has not used the express checkout feature more than a few times before. If they have used the express checkout before then they will get the error "This transaction couldn't be completed. Please redirect your customer to PayPal.(Code: 10486)" unless you have a business pro account which supposedly does not limit the number of express checkouts a person can use while checking out.

PayPal told me that in order to avoid that error I must pay for a business pro account or tell my clients to sign up for a PayPal account.

How come you are running a Business PayPal account in Nigeria?

PayPal releases fund for you immediately or next day if you are in the USA though 25% is held till delivery is confined. Holding funds for 21 days should either be location dependent or platform dependent.

How come you are running a Business PayPal account in Nigeria?
I think anyone with fully verified US paypal account can run a business account,provided you have the requirement.

According to my paypal notification,it says fund held will be reduced to 7-14 days after i provide my shipping tracking number. to remove the 21 day fund hold i need to verify my number( when i try to verify it keeps telling me my name is not register with the number)

Which country was your PayPal registered in?
If the primary phone number on your account is not the same with the number you are trying to verify, you will keep getting that "your name is not registered with the number " message. And at this stage, you can no longer verify the phone number that is attached to your PayPal account.

I have a US registered paypal account, I only get that message when I try to verify my identity to remove the 21day fund hold. I have changed my us number several times cause textme now keep changing my us number. Do u think that maybe the problem? What do u suggest I do please?

Yes, the change in your US number is the problem. The first number you entered on that account is the number that is registered in your name, and that's the PayPal is requesting that you should enter to proceed. And because you can't provide that first number anymore, it is now impossible to pass that stage. I knew this already, that's why I told you that you can no longer verify the phone that is attached to your PayPal account at this stage. There is nothing you can do about it. Just keep using the account the way it is.

Unfortunately, you will definitely lost access to this your PayPal account in the near future because of this same number issue. This is not a good news, but I have to tell you just so you know ahead of time.

Warning!
Don't login to the account from another device (Phone, laptop, PC) that is Defferent from the one you normally use to login. Any day you do, is the day you will finally lost access to the account.

Permanent Solution
Get a US phone number that will not be changing, a number that you can keep without loosing it. Then get a new US PayPal business account and add number to it and you will be able to operate your PayPal account exactly the way you want.

In your new US PayPal account, keep everything US to be on the safe side. Not like the current one with Nigerian credit card in a US PayPal account.
