In this tutorial, you will learn how to set up a Paypal account in Pakistan.
Paypal has a fragmented geographical policy that sometimes borrows from the real-world inequalities instead of addressing them. But here are good news: if you are an Internet user that lives in Pakistan, you don’t have to live in a third, separated digital world. So here is what you can do:
First thing to do is to install yourself a VPN, as Paypal is using IP checking as proof of location. You can find out how to do this in our “How to set up a VPN” tutorial. Go ahead, check it out. Put this on pause. We’ll wait.
Did you manage to set up your VPN? Good, now let’s go to the fun part.
Go to paypal.com and wait for the page to load.
Open up another tab and go to www.fakenamegenerator.com
Get yourself a nice, European identity from there. Let’s choose “Finnish”.
Click “Generate” to create your digital persona.
Go back to Paypal and use your new digital persona to create your Paypal account. Click “Agree” and “Create an Account”. Enter a security captcha at the end.
Result: Congratulations! You have just created yourself a Paypal account.
