Cash App is currently one of the most used digital money services in the world. With Cash App, you can deposit, withdraw, send, and receive money from others.

However, there’s a disadvantage for Nigerians. Cash App is only officially supported in some countries of which Nigeria is exempted. The only countries where you can use Cash App are the United Kingdom and the United States of America.

So, if you’re in Nigeria and you’re interested in opening a Cash App account, I’ll show you how to go about it.

Steps to open a cash app account in Nigeria
Below are steps to open a cash app account from Nigeria;

Get a VPN
Virtual Private Network routes your network via a private tunnel and can mask your IP address. If you’re not aware, geo-restricted websites, like the Cash App website, are able to detect where you’re browsing from by your IP address. MTN, Airtel, 9Mobile, or Glo, whichever one you use will issue you a Nigerian IP address.

When you use a VPN, you can select any country of your choice and your IP address will be changed to that country. As we’re to create a Cash App account, you should select either UK or USA. While premium VPNs are best, you can still make use of some free VPNs for this.

Sign up
You can sign up for Cash App from the website or by downloading the mobile app. The app is available for Android and iOS and can be downloaded from their respective stores.

However, it’ll be best to use the website on a PC to create your account. Before loading the website or the app, ensure the VPN is activated and set to the UK or USA.

Complete the sign up form and confirm your email address. While signing up, you’ll be prompted to enter your debit card details. Unless you manage to have a USA or UK debit card at your disposal, you should skip this.

Deposit & Withdrawal
With your account created, you can now proceed with deposit and withdrawal in subsequent times. Since you don’t own a US or UK debit card or bank account in Nigeria, Bitcoin is the way to go.

Cash App allows deposit and withdrawals in Bitcoin and all you need is a Bitcoin wallet. You can create one with Luno, Blockchain, Coinbase. After creating, fund your wallet (buy Bitcoin) using your Nigerian debit or directly from your bank account. You can also find your Bitcoin wallet with MyTopExchange.
