However, it is worth giving a try if you need a PayPal account.
Open Paypal account in Nepal Using Payoneer Mastercard
You can go to Paypal’s website and sign up easily by providing the correct information about yourself. However, when it comes to providing the number of bank account or internationally accepted credit card number, you will be in a difficult position. It is because Nepal’s bank account are not supported in Paypal, and internationally issued credit cards are also tough to get issued in Nepal. So, here comes the use of Payoneer mastercard.
Payoneer is an American company in which you can open Bank of America’s account and Payoneer Debit Card after going through a simple registration process.
Go to www.payoneer.com and sign up for free. You will have to provide the information regarding your first name, last name, date of birth, e-mail address, country name, street address, city, postal/zip code and phone number. Then you have to create a password and answer a security question. The other information that you have to provide is your identification number which may be either the number of citizenship card, driving license or passport. Then, you have to order the card which will be sent to your shipping address.
To use the Payoneer card’s details for Paypal, there should be some balance first. So, you need to make money online through some freelancing websites in your Payoneer card.
Then, go to the card details in Paypal and provide the Payoneer card number, expiration date and CSC or CVC number at the back of the card. After Paypal makes a little transaction from the Payoneer card, you will be able to use the Paypal account.
The limitation of this method is that it can only be used to send the payments.

To use this method, when you sign up for PayPal, do not select “Nepal” as your country. You have to select other countries, e.g. USA and the IP address of another country should be used. After providing all other information, use the information of VCC (card no, expiratory date and CSC/CVC) to provide the credit card information. However, you need to keep in mind that information of VCC should be used within 24 hours. After you enter details, click “Get number” at the bottom to receive four digit verification code which is used to verify your PayPal account.
Its limitation is that it is not a legitimate option and Paypal can figure it out that the country’s name in which the account is registered and the country from which the person is logging in are different. And so, an account can get frozen at times.
