Need help? Check out our Support site, then in Nigeria

  1. Hi! I don't know how to move to since payments are only made through paypal and Nigerians are not allowed to use paypal for some reasons. How do I go about this?

    The blog I need help with is

  2. If you are moving to a WordPress.ORG install you do not pay WordPress.COM unless you need the Guided Transfer. If you want to register a custom domain name and map it to your blog here, that is not a WordPress.ORG install and yes you do need to pay WordPress.COM for the domain name & domain mapping.

    If you are staying here, you have a tough deal since Nigeria is populated with so many thieves that PayPal (the company that handles all of the payments for upgrades) will not accept payments from your country.

    E-checks might be an option, finding a friend in a country that will allow payments to PayPal is another option.

    If you are truly moving to a WordPress.ORG install then the question is moot here - but then you need to find a host and registrar that will accept payments from your country, not all internet related companies use PayPal

  3. I'm so sorry but as auxclass says your country Nigeria is not a PayPal supported country found on this list I will link to. uses PayPal as their payment processor, and as such, can only accept payment from countries they support:

    PayPal have chosen to block payment from your country, so you will not be able to purchase an upgrade here unless you have a source of payment outside of your country.

    In addition to major credit cards Mastercard, VISA, American Express, Discover, and PayPal 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: also accepts Bitcoin for payment of certain upgrades ( bitcoin cannot be used for domain and premium theme purchases) - you can learn more here:
