How to Create a PayPal Account in Kenya

Would you like to open a PayPal account for Kenya?

PayPal Kenya is a safe and secure way to shop online and send money online. PayPal is now a common method for making online payments. Fortunately, you don’t need a credit card in order to open a PayPal account.

Because it doesn’t expose your PayPal business debit MasterCard details, it is the safest and easiest way to make transactions. A PayPal account is essential for receiving payments online in a country with a growing number of internet workers.

How to Open a PayPal Account in Kenya

  1. Go to PayPal.com from your computer.
  2. Select the type of account (Personal, Business).
  3. Fill in your personal information
  4. Email to activate the account
  5. Connect your debit or credit card
  6. PayPal allows you to send and receive money in Kenya or around the globe using PayPal.

It’s easy to open a PayPal Account. Let’s now look at the steps.

Step 1 – Signing up for a PayPal Account

You must first go to the PayPal website ( www.paypal.com). When you get to the platform, it will automatically redirect to https://www.paypal.com/ke/home because they have a Geolocation feature that will automatically detect your location.

These differences are due to different policies and terms for different countries and regions. However, it shouldn’t matter. Registering is free and there’s nothing to lose.

As you can see the country you choose is already pre-selected. The language defaults to English. You may want to alter these settings to suit your needs. You can choose between an Individual or Business account.

I recommend you choose the individual account. You can upgrade to a business account later. Below is a quick overview of both types of accounts. To use PayPal, you will need an USD to BTC online converter.

Step 2: PayPal Kenya Account Activation

Once you’ve completed the initial steps, activate your account. Go to your email inbox. PayPal will send you an activation email with a link to your email address that you registered at PayPal.

Step 3 – Linking your card with PayPal

You will be charged a small fee for linking your debit or credit card. After your card is verified, the amount will be refunded. Any card you have from your bank can be used, but it is best to first inquire about the process.

  • Confirm the withdrawal and confirm it.
  • This portal will be required to be accessed every time you withdraw money from PayPal.
