We've been waiting for the day we'll be able to receive money into our PayPal Account from Nigeria without restriction or gaming the system. As at 2010, Nigeria was still banned/blacklisted from having a PayPal account.
I remember in 2014, when PayPal announced that Nigerians can open PayPal account, but with an unbearable limitation. This type of account can only be used to buy things online or send payments to other PayPal accounts, which basically made the account useless to Nigeria folks who run business online (I included).
Finally the wait is over, the door is now open! No more struggle, no more holdup, no more limitation.

accepting PayPal payment on your business website as well as your business partners and customers.
