Opening a PayPal account isn’t the issue, the thing is all countries are allowed to open a PayPal account but PayPal has made plans for each country on what service they can render on each country’s PayPal account which is why each country has there own PayPal url domain extensions.
Though Some website will say register on PayPal via (www.paypal. com/ls/webapps/mpp/merchant) but that’s the old way, they’ve figure out that trick, it lands you to Lesotho PayPal, and I think now Lesotho PayPal accounts are now been suspended immediately though depends on how you handle it.
