We know that Paypal, not being in Pakistan, is a big hurdle for many to do online businesses in Pakistan. While we know that Pakistanis have long struggled to get Paypal working in Pakistan – but it hasn’t happened so far.
Usually To get a Verified paypal account and to withdraw funds you need:
But today i am going to tell you a definite way (though it’s a desi jugaar) of getting Verified Paypal account (in Pakistan) without being in any paypal supported country.
For that you will need two things:
Most of you are likely to be familiar with Payoneer and may have Payoneer account – if so, then you are minutes away from getting your paypal account verified.
If not, then you may need to get a Payoneer Master card, which may take couple of weeks. Whole process is explained below.
We are assuming that you have a paypal account with USA address and a activated payoneer master card..
Verify your Paypal account in Pakistan:
You can do so by following steps
Please note: Make sure that your payoneer card is activated and has funds in it as paypal will deduct a certain amount ($1.95) for verification which will reflect in your paypal account later.
After entering card details, login to your payoneer account. Go to transaction history and look for the paypal transaction that contains the 4-digit EXPUSE (expanded use) number that paypal sent. This information may take some time to appear in transaction history.
Return to Paypal by logging in again. Enter the given four-digit EXPUSE number in the transaction statement under Link and Confirm Card.
It’s all good by now with account status switching to Verified.
Withdrawing Paypal Funds
You can transfer Paypal funds to your Payoneer card – it’s simple. Afterwards use this Payoneer card to withdraw the money from ATM or use it online; the way you want.
What is Payoneer?
For those who don’t know, Payoneer is payout solution provider. As you may know that Payoneer is a registered MasterCard Merchant Service Provider (MSP), and partner with Choice Bank Limited or First Covenant Bank to deliver services.
The Payoneer Prepaid MasterCard® works just like any other Prepaid MasterCard/VISA card. The card is accepted at all locations worldwide, where Debit MasterCard is accepted
You can use it at a point of sale location to make purchases and withdraw money at any ATM by the Standard Chartered Bank or MCB in Pakistan.
No matter where you are in the world, if you are over the age of 18 and not an alien, you can order the Payoneer Prepaid MasterCard® card through one of payoneer partners. If you expect to receive earnings from this partner.
Payoneer is responsible to deliver your card to you wherever you live. You can also use the card to receive earnings from other Payoneer partners. You don’t need a bank account to apply.
so payoneer card can be used to receive fund from any one, remember that $1,000.00 is the limit for private loads made to your card. Payouts from your affiliate account (the payment your company/payoneer partner sends) do not have a limit.
Getting Payoneer Card
You need to contact any payoneer partner to get your card, few of them are listed below

All of above want you to earn money with them – and eventually you can redeem that money to the Payoneer MasterCard.
By the way Payoneer reserves right to accept or reject any application, It can take a couple of business days for your application to be processed and approved. Once approved, you will receive an e-mail confirmation with shipping details for the card.
When you get your Payoneer MasterCard you need to activate it (activation charges apply).
