How to Withdraw Paypal Money in Uganda

If you are reading this post, you probably have been allover the internet searching for How to Withdraw Paypal Money in Uganda and you are almost giving up falsely concluding that you can not Withdraw Paypal Money in Uganda.

For many Ugandans, it’s almost impossible to withdraw Paypal money in Uganda. I must accept that its a bit hard to withdraw Paypal Money in Uganda but it is not completely impossible because you can still withdraw Paypal money in Uganda to your Bank account or mobile Money line on MTN and Airtel Uganda.

For a start, PayPal Uganda accounts are banned from not only withdrawing but also receive Paypal money. This ideally means that there is no way to withdraw PayPal money since you can not even receive it!

In this article the first step is to show you a way to receive PayPal payments there after withdraw your PayPal into Cash to your Bank or Mobile Money Account.

In order to receive Paypal cash in Uganda you must own an account that receives money and the only way we can own one is by using a different country (Probably Kenya) when registering for a Paypal account. If you already own a Paypal account from Ugandan, I suggest you de-link your Visa Card, close your account and reopen one this time choosing Kenya as your country of residence.

After your new account is created, re-connect your visa card and ask your buyers now to pay you using paypal. You will be able to receive money now! Because we have used a Kenya account yet in Uganda, it actually means that you can use the same trick even if you are in Tanzania, Rwanda and the rest of Africa and the method will work for you. You will be able to now receive PayPal money in your PayPal account. Lets now move to the next part of this article:

How do i withdraw Paypal money in Uganda

In this tutorial we shall look at three ways you can use to withdraw Paypal money in Uganda to either your bank account or Mobile Money Line. For ease and a fast way to withdraw your Paypal Money in Uganda to either your Bank account or Mobile Money Line, I advise you Use Method one as top priority but you can use 2 and 3 in that order. This is because method one is hustle free and will get you withdrawing PayPal money in Uganda without even moving from your desk!

Method 1 – Withdraw payPal Money Using zPesa.

zPesa is an intermediate payment gateway from Techsys Ltd. The service offers a quick way to withdraw your PayPal money to both your Bank account or Mobile Money. Withdrawing PayPal money with zPesa is extremely easy. All you have to do is navigate to their website and using the withdraw function. You will need to select how much money you need to withdraw then proceed to your cart where you will choose to pay with PayPal. You will now be redirected to Login to your PayPal account and pay the sum you want to withdraw together with the cost of transferring that sum. After that is done you will wait for a few hours normally less than 12 hours before your money is deposited in your Mobile Money account.

Method 2 – Withdraw through a friend

This is not the best way but if you must, try withdrawing Paypal money in Uganda by sending the money to any friend who is verified and ask them to withdraw the money and send to you either through western union or any payment method that Uganda/your country supports. Since Kenyan Paypal users are allowed to receive and withdraw money, you may try contacting any Kenyan friend. The problem with this is that you will have to wait for almost 5 working days for money to clear if you are using a kenyan friend. Of course there is also the possibility of being conned and you receive nothing! But if you trust the person you will get your money after a very long wait.

Method 3 – Withdraw from Equity Bank Kenya

If you own a Kenyan Paypal account then you can withdraw your money through Equity Bank Kenya. Equity Bank Kenya has an agreement with Paypal which allows them to offer Paypal withdraw services in Kenya. You don’t have to be Kenyan to own a Kenyan Paypal account, just make sure you choose Kenya as your country while registering for a Paypal account. You must also have an Equity Bank Kenya bank account with a Visa Card. One of the hard parts of using this method is that after some time PayPal will ask you to verify that you are in Kenya by submiting a water, Electricity or other Unility bill from Kenya in your names that you will not have and at that point your account will be limited and you will not be able to use it nor use the Visa Card attached to it on another PayPal account.

Method 4 – Withdraw using Payoneer Card

Lets Just say U will not be able to withdraw your PayPal Money using this method. Ok the method does work although because of its hardship many have concluded it is useless!  Payoneer is a New York based financial company that provides services of transferring money online and e-commerce payment solutions. Its one of the registered member service worldwide providers of MasterCard and supports over 200 countries worldwide. Using Payoneer you can own a free prepaid debit MasterCard and a virtual US bank account in Bank of America that you can use to withdraw Paypal money. However since mid 2015 Paypal stopped ACH transfers to US Bank account linked to Payoneer due to increase in the number of fake Paypal accounts being opened. It has also become so hard to link your virtual bank account to Paypal without being rejected. The ones that link successfully are automatically removed after a period of time.

If however this is your only lifeline, then make sure you sign up for a US Paypal account and provide a real address of any of it’s citizens. If you sign up from another location then your Payoneer account might never get linked to your Paypal account. This is the main reason many people fail to link their Payoneer accounts to Paypal. You must make sure that you sign up for a US Paypal account if you intend to use Payoneer Master Card. After opening your US Paypal account you have to open up a Payoneer account as well From here except that you have to use your exact details while registering for a new Payoneer account. When you get your Payoneer account its empty and paypal needs money to verify so try to add some funds to it before adding it to PayPal.

In case your Payoneer account successfully links to your Paypal account then all you have to do is initiate withdraws from your Paypal account and you should be able to receive the money on your Payoneer account in 2 – 3 days. You can then withdraw the funds from your Payoneer account directly to your local bank account in just a few days. You must also learn how to withdraw money from Payoneer. Sign up for a Free Payoneer account through this link and earn a free $25 bonus on your account when you deposit a minimum of $100 on your account.

    Hello.thank you for this article.
    My question is if I use method 2 or 2 but used Kenya as country (yet am in Uganda). Is there a chance that PayPal will ask me to identify myself as a Kenyan in future?

    • admin says:

      Hello, If you Use Kenya after withdrawing a certain amount of money Paypal will demand that you verify your location if you fail you will be limited.

  3. Alfred Cwothum says:

    Is there hope for receiving and sending paypal money in Uganda? Otherwise After reading your article I opened a new Paypal account using Mental as a country.But how far will this go before being detected?

    • admin says:

      Well you will use it for a while but sooner they will detect it and you will be limited and potentially your balance will be frozen. Sending PayPal money is almost open in every country BUT its receiving and withdrawing that is limited

  4. Shaffic says:

    You can try a Service called Payz UG < > their service is straight forward and easy to use. Money comes instantly if you dont exceed the limit. However they also have bulk withdraw request which takes 24-48 hrs at-least. Try them.

  5. Kobbo says:

    Hey Admin. Thank you so much for the info. I am in the early stages of opening an online business. That means that i get paid through an online mechanism as well. However, the fact that i cannot receive the money in Uganda is a major bottleneck. So what would you recommend as the next best quick and convenient option?

  7. Kaweesa says:

    Hi, well I used method two. I live in Uganda but have a verified paypal Kenyan account. How much do i have to withdraw before my account gets limited. Also, can I get a fake kenyan bill to use as proof of address?

    • admin says:

      Well it will be somewhere between $2000 and $5000 and they will ask for address verification. Getting fake bills is always going to be very hard for you.
