I know most people will claim to show you a shortcut that may work temporarily, but I strongly advise you to stay away from such shortcuts as it can lead to you losing money when PayPal finds out.
Alright, with that being said, let's get started.
Step 1. Get A Verified US Phone Number
For you to get your own personal USA-verified phone number, all you need is to visit www.dington.me, or probably buy a US Simcard from Amazon or any online store near you.
Install the app on your phone and signup. Navigate to the section that says “Choose phone numbers”; Select any US phone you like and pay for it. I'll recommend you pay annually rather than monthly.
You can buy as many phone numbers as you like, there's no limit here, but we need only one in this tutorial. Now that you have your US Verified Phone Number, let's go to step 2.
Step 2. Get A Verified Physical US Address
This is so that whenever you have mail from any company or anywhere at all, they will send you an email informing you.

Detailed Guide on How to Create A Verified USA PayPal Business Account [Step by Step]
Step #1. Two options, either you change the country code on your browser manually, or you install a good VPN on your computer browser. I'll recommend you use this online once, during the account creation only; Other times, just use your normal IP.
The reason for the VPN is just for you to easily redirect to the US version of the account setup page, if you know how to do that manually, then there's no need for the VPN, it will still work just fine.
Step #2. Make sure your VPN is turned on and the USA is selected as your location. Goto whatismyipaddress.com and verify that your IP is a US Address.
Note: You only need this once during the account creation process, other times, just log in with your normal IP, with no issues at all.
Step #3. Visit www.paypal.com and select Business in the top menu.
Step #4. Enter your email address, create a password, and click on ”Continue”.
Please Note: I'll suggest you create a fresh Gmail account and use it for this account, this is because your email address is what you will be paid with and it needs to be unique and simple to remember.
Enter the required information and click on ”Agree and Create Account”.
Remember to use the information you have gotten following the steps above. Please do not make any mistakes.
In the Business Name section, enter the exact name on your registered LLC company formation (e.g. “Yourname LLC” ). Then enter your shipito address in the address section. Agree and Continue.
Choose the type of business and the category and subcategories.
Note: All this information is already in the documents you have received from the partner you choose for your company formation above. Enter these details and select the USA as the country. Continue.
Enter the info PayPal asks you for, now they will ask you for the business owner info. Select United States, and enter your date of birth and address.
Enter the Beneficial Owner information.
PayPal will now ask you more information about your business, When you have answered all the questions, click ”Continue”.
In a few minutes, check your email for a message from PayPal, and click the link in the email to verify your email. Enter your password, then click ”Confirm”.
Once you've signed up for a PayPal Business account, the set-up section focuses on an important aspect of your business.
