PayPal is one of the largest online payment processors in the world. After rising to prominence through its partnership with eBay, online merchants all across the Internet accept PayPal as one of their accepted methods of payment.

PayPal service is not available in Nepal yet. Because Nepal Rastra Bank (NRB) Policy does not allow money transactions in foreign currency.

You can create a PayPal account with Nepal as a country but you won’t find an option to receive the money. You can only send payments by adding your Debit or Credit Cards. So, the PayPal account will be of virtually no use.

However, the Central Bank of Nepal Bank has recently approved the use of prepaid dollar cards for online transactions, and now you can link your prepaid dollar card to PayPal.

How To Add Your Credit/Debit Card To PayPal?

To add a card:

  1. Go to your Wallet page.
  2. Click on Link a credit card.
  3. Enter the required details and follow the on-screen instructions.

In some cases, in order to ensure you’re the card owner, PayPal may ask you to confirm your card. If you see a “confirm credit card” link in the card details section of your PayPal Wallet, you’ll need to confirm your card before you can use it with PayPal.

When you link your card to a PayPal account, you can use it anywhere where PayPal is accepted. You can signup for Netflix, purchase online gift cards, or even you can use it for eBay or Amazon.

You can spend up to $500 per year via PayPal if you link your prepaid dollar card issued by the banks of Nepal. But still, you cannot accept money from others. This feature is yet to come in Nepal.
