Sign This Change.org Petition To Make Nigerians Receive Paypal Funds *416 To Go by oladayo63(m): 9:51am On Jul 25, 2016
We need 1000 people to sign the petition. So far, we've gotten 582 people (as at the time of writing this). Go ahead to sign it too. When the number of people reaches 1000, the petition will be submitted to PayPal CEO, Daniel Schulman.

I'm sure the creator of this petition, Rukky Koffi from Ughelli, Nigeria, wrote this with a painful heart:

"Today was a sad day for me. I applied to a job online that would allow me earn a full-time income by Nigerian standards (about $1000 a month). I qualified for this job after a rigorous screening process but when it was time to setup my work info, I found out that the company makes payments only via PayPal and at the moment, Nigerians cannot receive payments with their paypal accounts.
This hasn't happened to just me. In fact, this isn't the only instance. Imagine spending countless hours building a product to sell in a marketplace only to find that they make their payments exclusively via paypal? This is the situation for countless Nigerians who are motivated..."

You ask, "Can anything good come out of Nazareth?"

We don't know, and we can't know if we don't get there!

Steven Akinyemi from Lagos has this to say to PayPal CEO: "I'm going to be really frank. So you can either skip to the last paragraph or you can read all that is on my mind.
If you still have the stereotypical perception of all Nigerians being scammers then I suggest you discard the view now.
Providing a half-baked service isn't going to make anyone happy. Your service is analogous to one-way communication systems. We can pay, but we can't recieve. Hilarious!
We need to recieve funds in Nigeria too. We've had enough of this sterotypical bullshit. Goddammit! There are scammers in other countries too. Tighten your security or something. Don't deny us the basic essence of using a payment service.
If your inability to allow us recieve funds has to do with some unresolved economic partnership or registration of some sort (which I really don't know much about), then you need to get that sorted out.
There are a lot of Nigerians hoping to use their paypal account as a two-way payment system. No customer would be happy if your services are a representation of stereotypical judgement of who he/she is. As for me, I prefer a full-baked pie and would never take a half-baked one just for the sake having a pie.
Back in 2014 when I heard about PayPal Nigeria, I was so excited and pumped up to create an account. I was like "finally, someone listened." And then I found out we can only pay. And then I shook my head knowing they only listened to the part that made sense to them. I went back to my MC services unsatisfied and a bit angry with PayPal. Well I got used to the disappointment and really hoped I will never hear the name again.
Until today. I saw this petition. And I knew this could be the time to change something. A change that will allow Nigerians to recieve funds through PayPal or a change that changes nothing. If it turns out to be the former, I promise not to feel disappointed, I will just move on with life like nothing really happened. I will grab my MC card and smile. It's been a great bud over the years.
PayPal can either do something about this petition, or we can just sit here and watch as PayPal Nigeria rolls into Sahara desert.
A lot of things is wrong with Nigeria already, please don't make it harder."

Do we need to do this? Why not go for Skrill instead? Skrill is far better than PayPal. Skrill doesn't have any of the limitations imposed by PayPal. And Skrill works exactly like PayPal.

what you do not know is that Skrill is not as popular as paypal and people then to be weary when you mention something like skrill which they have never heard of. You dig?

Well, I had to register for Skrill and I am not regretting it. Instead of receiving or making payment via PayPal, I now do it via Skrill and I'm loving it. No restrictions. No need to verify bank account or verify identity until you want to receive big money. If you only want to transfer or receive small money like me, just register an email account and that is all. Skrill is sweeter than PayPal. All people need is information about it.

I use it to receive money from individuals and freelance sites easily. I use it to send money to individuals and website easily. I received funds from freelancer.com and from one of my clients in Pakistan without any hitch. I used it to fund some online accounts and I also use it to transfer money to an exchanger in Nigeria when I wanted to sell Skrill fund. You will not believe it; Skrill is better than PayPal.

I have a skrill account. What I am trying to find out is what will be the reaction of someone who hasn't heard of Skrill before when I recommend that they send me funds through skrill. My worry is that they might reject it because they have not heard of it. You get? I sell domain names most times and another thing is that Skrill does not have invoice option like paypal whereby you can send invoice to buyers and the pay the invoice.
