When I first started out as a blogger, receiving payment from a client from other countries was a tug of war. It’s so unfortunate that here in Nigeria we are restricted to certain payment platform. This fact alone has kept most newbies from exploring other countries. So in this article, I will be discussing them and how to use them.

There are many platforms But I will be limiting this to just three, let's ride to it.

The three platforms have used and also seen most of my friends use are

  • Paypal

  • Payoneer

  • Paystack.

  • I will explain how it works.


    Well, no matter how unfortunate Nigeria can be in terms of certain restriction from most of this platform, we can’t afford to shut our eyes and not talking about how this platform works.

    Literally, no matter where you are located in the hemisphere of this earth, so far as you are connected to the internet you can send and receive money with your PayPal account and it doesn’t even take up to 20 minutes of your time.

    If you are not from Nigeria; log in to and check if your country is allowed to open an account that can both receive and pay funds. However, if you are a Nigeria, you’ve still got an alternative. 

    The two other methods we will be discussing got your back. Otherwise, checkout this ebook that teaches you how to open a PayPal in Nigeria that sends and receive money easily.


    This is another great platform that you can use to send and receive money in Nigeria. In fact, most online entrepreneur prefers it to PayPal. 

    Why did I say so?

    In as much as I wouldn’t like to discourage you from getting a PayPal account, you deserve to know the truth. Payoneer doesn’t want to know which part of the world you are from. So far as you will be able to log in and follow what works, you are good to go. While this is not the case with Paypal, most Nigerian online entrepreneur has had a bad experience with PayPal raging from disabling of account with no just reason to a client asking for a refund when you even over delivered on the services required.  (Though the latter is most conversant with Nigerians).

    Registering on Payoneer take 30 minutes on the max to get your account ready for the transaction.


    This is one tool most Nigerians are yet to discover in terms of using it to receive payment from other countries.

    Here is how it works. 

    Though Paystack is majorly used to collect payment from fellow Nigeria it has a feature that allows you to receive payment outside Nigeria. But one problem here is that you must have a registered business name before this feature will be enabled in your account. So if you already have a business name Paystack is a good fit for you just go to and book your space. Otherwise, go for either PayPal or Payoneer.
