As a PayPal Cameroon blogger, almost every week i get asked questions related if its possible to link a PayPal Cameroon account to Mobile Money and withdraw/transfer money from PayPal to Mobile Money in Cameroon. So many people have also ask if its possible to fund a PayPal account with Mobile.
Answering the same question over and over again was getting very boring to me, so i thought it wise to write an article that will serve as a reference point to Cameroonians who wish to make inquiries about PayPal to Mobile Money withdrawal and the funding of a PayPal accounnt with Mobile Money.
Before delving in to the main topic, i will like to make it very clear that this info is relevant only to homebased Cameroonians who have gotten their unrestricted PayPal Cameroon that receives money.
For those of you who don’t know, there are two types of PayPal accounts which home based Cameroonians can create (sign up for) on the PayPal website.
The two PayPal Cameroon accounts include;
1) The Personal PayPal Cameroon account (that can only be used to send payment only)
2) The Unrestricted PayPal account that receives money and permits withdrawal of funds
1) The personal PayPal Cameroon account;
This is the most common PayPal account (which can easily created on the PayPal website by anybody in Cameroon) has only one function i.e. it can only be used to do online payments. No receiving or withdrawal of funds is allowed for the Personal PayPal Cameroon accounts.
In other words, the internet entrepreneurs and online merchants in Cameroon can’t receive payment/money with the personal PayPal Cameroon account talk less of withdrawing money.
Like i mentioned earlier, the Personal PayPal Cameroon accounts doesn’t store funds. They can only be used by Cameroonians to do online payments ONLY.
So if you are one of the online shopaholics in Cameroon who often buy stuffs online with their debit or prepaid cards, having a PayPal Cameroon account will be of great benefit to you.
PayPal will enable you to shop online without exposing your credit card details….at the end of this article, I’m going to tell you how PayPal protects the credit details of online shoppers (credit card holders).
So if you are just on the buying end, then the PayPal Cameroon platform (paypal.cm) was specifically created for you.
