I know you are frustrated because PayPal doesn’t offer its services in Pakistan. This is a big hurdle for us in receiving online payments and paying for services that only supports PayPal. Despite the fact that the online community has struggled a lot and filed many petitions to persuade somehow them opening their payment gateway for us, but all in vain. It seems quite unfair that 190 countries around the globe are being entertained with PayPal’s quality services while a few like Pakistan are deprived of it. Above all, we should also blame the negative minds who have disgraced the fame of Pakistan, and for this reason not only PayPal but many other services have closed their gates for Pakistan. But, there is a solution!
