In order words,you may type PayPal.com/Kenya or PayPal.com/le in your address book to get started with creating the account. Note that le stands for Lesotho. This allows you to sign-up for an account. Do not worry about the country because you can always choose Ghana as your country when filling the form. Personally, Lesotho didn’t work for me even though it works for others so I used Kenya.

After opening the web page, click the sign up option to begin. Choose the type of account you wish to create, that is, either a personal account or a business account. I recommend a business account type if you want to have a payment method for side hustles.
