PayPal is a global online payment system that allows users to send and receive money in over 200 countries and territories. However, there are still a few countries where PayPal does not operate.
These countries include:
🇸🇸 South Sudan
🇱🇨 Saint Lucia
🇰🇵 North Korea
🇬🇶 Equatorial Guinea
🇨🇮 Cote D’Ivoire
🇨🇫 Central African Republic
The reasons why PayPal does not operate in these countries vary. Some of the reasons include:
Regulatory restrictions: Some countries have strict regulations on online payments, which make it difficult for PayPal to operate there.
Political instability: PayPal may be hesitant to operate in countries that are politically unstable due to the risk of fraud and other financial crimes.
Lack of demand: In some countries, there may not be enough demand for PayPal services to justify the cost of operating there.
If you are living in a country where PayPal does not operate, there are a few other online payment systems that you can use. Some of these alternatives include:
- WeChat Pay
When choosing an alternative payment system, it is important to consider the fees, features, and availability in your country.
