    Hello,

    I am not sure if I am writing this to ask for a solution or to confess and let it all out of my chest.

    Well since this is probably my first real thread let me introduce myself quickly, I am a freelance writer who has been making full-time income from the Internet for 4 years now. Like most of you, I have made a lot of money and lost a lot of money.

    I am from Egypt, it's a beautiful country. However, the last thing that could ever come to my mind is that my place of residence will be the biggest problem in my internet career. Paypal does not support Egypt (Fullstop)

    Through the years, I have had many fake paypal accounts and they all got closed. I tried using my friends' or strangers' accounts and they all cheated me and ran away with the money, sad eh?

    Now I have a trust problem and I cannot use Plimus or any alternatives because most of the money I make is from Fiverr.

    I need to own a paypal! I can do anything for that. Anyone has something to suggest? it would be much appreciated!

    Maybe you could use a proxy from Canada and make a Canadian account?

    Thanks for answering :) Well I will need a Canadian bank account and credit card to get it verified. VCC's also do not work, they will get your account banned no matter what you do, I have tried them dozens of time, VCC sellers will hate me now :D

    Have to agree with op. It is sad that online business transactions still revolve around PayPal. There are so many better alternatives, but it doesn't matter if no one uses them. Only paying out by PayPal, or only accepting PayPal for payments is stupid in my opinion.

    All it does is prevent people, like the op, from doing well with a legitimate business. It also hurts people who have had problems with the eBay-PayPal empire. Not to mention lifetime bans, 180 day holds and the fact that PayPal can basically do whatever it wants.

    I think in the next few years things will change for the better. So many companies are popping up with much better terms of service and support.

    Anyways op I think you should try and move away from fiverr. In my experience stealth PayPal accounts only last so long before they get limited. Maybe you should move to elance or try getting clients here.

    You need someone to receive the money on your behalf and then wire you the money.

    get a proxy in asia and make an account there, then when they ask for identification photoshop some chinese onto what looks like a valid id


    that will work, then you just need to get past the card verification, which you can do by setting up an offshore bank account in cyprus under an IBC, or by getting a donor

    Don't waste your time playing with proxies or even finding someone to get the payments for you you will end up being scammed or with closed paypal account , i have faced this shit when i started with IM since my country dosent support receiving payment with paypal.
    those are some solutions that you can try:
    -Apply for payoneer.com virtual Bank account and you can verify your paypal account with it.
    -2checkout.com you can use it to receive paypal payments (use this coupon to get a free account instead of paying 50$ : WHB3WPFA)
    -Go to another country that support paypal , spend sometime there and get a bank account that you can use with paypal (i got mine after 2 or 3months)
    Hope this will help you , i have been in your situation and i know how's you r feeling ;)

    Get a JV or something with someone else.

    They get the money, they get a bit of that money, they send you the rest.

    You must contact with your relatives who lives in the PayPal supported country. There is no other alternative solution :(

    Why the hell would you open up a 2 month old thread to answer somebody who has been banned? and with a lame answer to boot.

    As far as I know the only way you could open up a new Paypal account is to first open a bank account in a location that accepts Paypal. As far as what name to use, that is up to you as it can be hard to go under a fake identity. I'm amazed you even were ever able to open a PP account under fake names in the first place.

    PayPal does not support Egypt. So, you can use proxy of any paypal supported country to make your account.

    Ok, for those that are visually impaired let me help you out a little:

    The OP was banned (I don't know why, doesn't matter) - There is no longer a reason to respond to the OP concerning this matter. Please let the tread die.

    Thank you. ;)

    Well, I see the OP has been banned, still this is the common problem for people which are in countries not supported with PayPal. For frelancers there is a solution with Payoneer, you get their card and a US virtual bank account from them as well. You add/verify the card at PayPal and you withdraw the money to the virtual bank acc, which is actually loaded onto your Payoneer card. You are then able to withdraw the money at ATM.

    Just because the OP was banned, doesn't mean it's not a valid thread. I found some good advice in here and was wondering the same thing.
