Flaxx was born out of shared concern of every Nigerian entrepreneur, I still remember when i first landed a GIG online with a client in Belgium and needed to process payments to my Nigerian account, Got on PayPal and Nigeria got banned and my funds unrecoverable for months…the job so took everything I had to the point where I was left disappointed, confused and frustrated. the same concern goes to most business people who process their daily bread online.
Flaxx came into existence in 2022 and have ever since made payment processing as easy and seamless as possible for its customers, flaxx is an international payment processing service that processes international payments from any country through your payment link or virtual account number to your flaxx account and down to your Nigerian bank account.
Below is a well thought out, step-by-step process to open and verify your flaxx account in less than 10 minutes
- Works well with PayPal, Payoneer, and Amazon
- Virtual Account for PayPal Verification and International Payment
- Accept credit and debit cards, Alipay, Applepay and so much more
- Works well with other freelance services like Upwork and Fiverr
I have tested the website for myself and everything is functional. The USD account here can be used in withdrawing funds from PayPal, Payoneer, Amazon, Upwork and Fiver. Like Grey and Payoneer, creating a virtual account is free, and you only need to prove your identity in four easy steps.
You can also link this virtual account to PayPal or Payoneer so that you can withdraw your funds at the black market rate. I guess everybody knows Payoneer’s rate is very low. The rate right now will be about NGN430, which is the official CBN rate. If you still withdraw from Payoneer straight to your Naira account, you are losing a lot of money and leaving out the better part on the table.

- After ID verification, you can request virtual cards. You can request GBP, USD, Euro, and Naira bank accounts. Your USD account will be given to you immediately you request for one.
Flaxx is currently the best alternative to Skrill for Nigerians. The account can be linked to your PayPal for withdrawal, and you can also use it as your payment method for other platforms that request international payment.
It works so well with USD, Euro and GBP bank account as well as a 24 hour customer service. I hope you had a good read, if you have any questions or reservations, let me know in the comment section below.
