Why can't I purchase a domain from Nigeria

    I keep getting this message even after selecting Nigeria as my country.
    “This transaction cannot be processed. Please use a valid country on the billing address.”

    The blog I need help with is greigns.wordpress.com.



    I’m sorry you did not search before you posted and had to wait for this answer.

    We use PayPal as our payment processor, and as such, we can only accept payment from countries they support: https://www.paypal.com/worldwide/

    For whatever reason, they have chosen to block payment from Nigeria, so you will not be able to purchase an upgrade here unless you have a source of payment outside of Nigeria.

    In addition to major credit cards Mastercard, VISA, American Express, Discover, and PayPal https://www.paypal.com/worldwide/ WordPress.com can accept echecks and some debit cards.

    The debit card must have a VISA or Mastercard symbol on it, and should work just like a credit card when selecting the VISA or Mastercard option on the payment form, even though it’s a debit card.

    More about echecks here:



    Thanks for the feedback…pretty sad anyway.



    It’s very sad that so many spammers have destroyed the reputation of your country with PayPal. Many bad apples (spammers, phishers, identity thieves) have spoiled this for everyone else in your country. :(
