PayPal Lebanon, As MENA general manager of PayPal, Elias Ghanim said that Arab Net 2013 Conference in Beirut announced that PayPal payments which is one of the most famous online payment services will be available soon in Lebanon. And most likely to happen this year “referring to 2013 PayPal Lebanon” But If you head into www.paypal.com you won’t find Lebanon within the supported countries. Also PayPal’s General Manager mentioned that the company do follow a roadmap in order to list priorities, many do believe that the problem is in the restrictions imposed on credit cards targeted in Lebanon not PayPal Lebanon itself, however he did explain that the company unrolls its service gradually in many different countries according to the priority level for each one confirming that there is no legal restriction on Lebanon and the main and only problem is that the Lebanese market not having such an important rate of online payments. Perhaps for a third world country like Lebanon western Union is the best payment method, still you cannot find WU payment everywhere on the web. Simply because it’s not as swift – reliable and easy as PayPal.

My name is Laurent Wakim and I am in charge of PayPal’s business in the MENA region.
As my colleague explained to you, when we announced the launch of PayPal services in Egypt in May, there was a misinterpretation about Lebanon’s launch. In 2012, PayPal decided to have a dedicated team focusing on the MENA region. As part of the priorities, expanding our geographic footprint is among the most important ones. That’s why we launched our business in Egypt.
Lebanon is an important market to us (and to me being Lebanese) however when PayPal looks at new opportunities, we need to prioritize them and they compete against other initiatives whether new products, new geographies, …etc. So while enabling Lebanon remains a priority for us, we don’t have any timeline that we can share. There are no reasons why PayPal is not launching Lebanon, it is a matter of priorities”
