+Ato Ulzen-Appiah One of questions we should be asking the tech people in government is why payment companies are cautious about coming here. And perhaps we should be attacking this issue from both angles: Payment providers and our own people. Reading the GSMA report on m-Pesa's success, the absence of regulation in Kenya created a fertile ground for it to thrive. The mobile telcos who have tried replicating this model in Ghana have not been as successful (http://www.gsma.com/mobilefordevelopment/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/What-makes-a-successful-mobile-money-implementation.pdf). You probably know better than I do about the initial requirements for opening a mobile money account. Add Know Your Customer (KYC) and the money laundering laws to that and you have a system that no one would bother registering for. Thankfully, things are easier now.

Thus, before labeling Paypal's "excuse" as bogus, we should examine what they are saying. Does the legal framework in Ghana allow them to thrive here? I believe that Ghana is VERY attractive to foreign businesses, so if Paypal isn't here, there might be some real issue(s) holding them back. Should the conversation with Paypal end? Absolutely not.
