Note that you can only receive PayPal money with UBA bank as of now and not all UBA bank account type can be used. In the actual sense you can only receive Paypal money with only a bank account type called “UBA Prepaid card” as it has the ability to receive foreign currency it is also known as UBA AfriCard so, to set it up you can simply walk into any UBA bank and request for a UBA Naira Prepaid card (It is completely free and you don't have to be an existing customer before you can get this card), remember to ask for Naira prepaid card and not Dollar prepaid card.

After collecting the card, follow the bank instruction to load the card and you can then link the card to your Paypal account.

Once you are through with the above you can then start transacting with your Paypal account as you can now pay others and also receive money at the same time even while in Nigeria, Ghana or any other restricted country. Remember to be responsible and don't use this method to commit crimes or fraudulent acts. You can withdraw your funds directly from the ATM using the prepaid card or transfer to other accounts.
