As we all know that Bluehost currently accepts credit and debit card payments, as well as PayPal for global customers. However, for customers in Nigeria, there are limitations with both local credit or debit cards and even PayPal.

To address this issue, it is recommended that alternative payment methods be explored. Some potential options include using a different payment processor compatible with Nigeria or working with a payment gateway that can process payments directly from a Nigerian bank account.
