Paypal released a wonderful new feature that makes receiving money even easier! You can now have your very own custom link and receiving money is as simple as a click! Not only can connect your customers, friends, or family to your Paypal account with the click of a link, but you can also set the amount! That’s right!
How PayPal.Me Works
- Grab your own link
Grab your own personal PayPal.Me link and we’ll add it to your PayPal account for you to share with friends or customers.
- Share with the world
Whether you need to collect money from friends, or get paid by a customer, just send them your PayPal.Me link.
- Get paid back easy
Friends just click the link, enter the amount and they’re done. The money’s in your PayPal account in seconds.
Of course, I’ve got mine already and you are all free to donate money to me at http://paypal.me/andbenice
Adding the amount you want the visitor to send to you is as easy as tagging the number on to the end of the link: http://paypal.me/andbenice/10
Standard Paypal fees apply, but there is no charge to use the service.
There are some limitations that come with service:
- You only get one custom link per Paypal account
- Custom URLs are on a first-come, first-serve basis, so the longer you wait, the more likely the URL you want will be taken
- From Paypal FAQ:
- It can only contain alphanumeric characters (letters A-Z, numbers 0-9) and can’t contain symbols, dashes, or spaces.
- It’s not case sensitive, but casing is recommended to improve its readability for your friends and family.
- Profane, offensive, defamatory or reserved trademarks are forbidden even if the link is available. Your account may be suspended if you violate this one. Let’s keep it clean.
- Link names are limited to 20 characters max.
