Nothing has really changed about creating a PayPal account in Ghana 2019.

According to the roadmap spelt out by the Vice President Dr. Mahmoud Bawumia a couple of years ago, 2019 would be a very exciting year for online shoppers, freelancers and merchants.

Just about anybody who has got a transaction or business to do online.Ghana is set to be PayPal compliant by 2020. I’m very careful in throwing specific dates around.

Not because I don’t trust my Vice President. But politician are fond of doing magic.

My Journey with Creating PayPal Accounts

I’ve taken money from people to help them create this account before. And I’ve never felt good about that. I’m not holier than thou.

But my principles and conscience kind of strike me always.

PayPal is a free service. Just that – its not in Ghana.

But you’re rendering a valuable service?
You may ask.

Of course, I am.

And I also know what giving FREE valuable content consistently to a target audience can do to my brand and my business.

Especially, from a marketing point of view. And so, I’ve created several videos on “How to create a PayPal account for free in Ghana”.

I’ve spent 1000’s of cedis on tools and resources to help people in this regard. There’s no exception this year. I am walking you through PayPal Ghana 2019 and will continue until you’re satisfied.

But some Ghanaians….!

I don’t  know – are just lazy and can only get lazier.

After all these investments to help you create a PayPal account for free, some people still beg me to take their moneys and do it for them.


You do it – I’ll guide you for free. And they say no – do it for me. Okay fair enough. I know there are some very busy folks who may need PayPal accounts for their business quickly.

And some other people who prefer to outsource anything tech related rather than get their hands dirty. Talk about all the frustrations and details. 

Some may also need a Ghana PayPal account for a specific purpose ASAP, such as payment for freelance work, online accounts creation, purchases and various payments etc…

And so I started putting a premium value on this gig. 100 cedis, 200 cedis and these same people complain.

It’s too expensive.

I’ve spent several 1000’s of cedis to create free videos, blog post and even a course on PayPal in Ghana – pay 150 cedis for a ‘Done For You” account and you’re complaining.

I’ve come to the realization that like one of my virtual mentors always says, “Entrepreneurship is not for everybody.”

That is very true.

Until you take risk and invest your own money into things that can help you grow and earn real money – you probably need to write another job application.

Enough of my rant.

Withdrawing money from your PayPal account in 2019

Nobody jokes when it comes to withdrawing money from any financial entity. Money is blood. 

However, upon my research on various PayPal forum threads on their website, this is what i found. It’s quite simple to withdraw money from your PayPal account.

There are several ways to withdraw money from your PayPal account.

You can either transfer money directly to your linked bank account, use your PayPal Debit MasterCard®, or have PayPal mail you a check.

However, things are quite different for Ghanaian users. Since PayPal is not officially in Ghana, withdrawing cash has never been easy.

Let’s see what we can do about this in this video…

Alternatives to PayPal in Ghana

PayPal as it is has several advantages over other payment processors and providers.

Apart from it’s dominance and popularity, it is quite easier and flexible in relation to its core duties – payments and withdrawals.

PayPal is not only a problem to the myriad of Ghanaians hoping to use the platform without any restrictions but it is also widely criticized for it’s notorious treatment of some users.

Therefore, the question of alternatives come to mind.

There can be several simple and quite complicated alternatives to PayPal in Ghana.

Lets look at a few here:

      1. Payoneer

payoneer Ghana: paypal ghana alternative

Payoneer in Ghana is a simple cross-border payments platform that empowers businesses, online sellers and freelancers to pay and get paid globally as easily as they do locally.

      2. Xoom (from PayPal)

Xoom - PayPal Ghana alternative

I’ll have to talk about Xoom here once again. Yes I should.

Xoom is a service affiliated to PayPal. PayPal’s own money transfer service

Here, you can send, request and receive moneys to and from your PayPal account.

“But not from your PayPal balance.”

NB: Please not this.

One could easily realize that PayPal bought this new money transfer service to help with the growing issues with transfers abroad – by its users.


This Xoom service can be used or accessed through your PayPal account. You can also subscribe to it as a standalone service.

However, as I’ve already mentioned – you cannot send money from your PayPal balance. Transfer from PayPal could only be done through your linked debit/prepaid or credit card.

Somewhat bitter – sweet.

PayPal in Ghana like anywhere else allows you to send and receive money from almost anyone and anywhere with a few simple clicks.

And Xoom is the money transfer option for users who wants to send money abroad through PayPal. 

Don’t worry if it sounds complicated. This video may come to your rescue. 

     3. Stripe

Stripe - PayPal Ghana alternative

Stripe is an online payments system that offers payment transfer capabilities along with credit card processing and other features for internet commerce.
