PayPal Me: Easy Way to Receive Payment via PayPal
PayPal.me is a free service to receive payment online via short url link. PayPal.Me helps to accept payment from overseas using short url.
PayPal is a reliable service to receipt and sent payments online. It is the easiest way to accept payment. Most freelancers and small business owners rely on PayPal to send and receive payments online securely. The service makes its so easy to accept payment from overseas and makes sending and receiving money transaction easy.
I have been using PayPal for several years now and I know it offers several great features such as creating and sending Invoices for Free. All you need is an email address to receive payment.
But using an email ID for financial transactions can have security issues, even though PayPal takes all possible security measures. As a solution to this security concern, PayPal has launched a new service called PayPal.Me. This new service allows you to create a personal url link that you can share with anyone to get paid.
However, this new service from PayPal is not available in all countries. Residents of following countries can avail the benefits of PayPal.Me:
- United Kingdom
- United States
- More countries will be added soon…
How PayPal.Me Works and How to Get Your Own Short PayPal URL
This official PayPal feature is completely free and is available in limited countries. You can either create a new PayPal account or if you have a PayPal account then just visit PayPal.me to create and get your own personal short PayPal payment link.
Once you have created a new PayPal account or logged in to your existing account, you will get option to add your short URL. You can enter the name or username that you want. The system will check for availability. If the short name is available then you can claim it.
PS: This is a newly launched service and there is opportunity for you to get the desired PayPal.me URL that you want for personal transactions or for your business.
Example: PayPal.me/freelancer, PayPal.me/freelancewriter, PayPal.Me/myaffiliate, PayPal.me/YourName etc.
Remember that PayPal.Me short URL links are available on first-come-first-serve basis. So, grab your short URL now. Make sure to select the best meaningful URL that you can easily remember as you cannot edit it later.
I am eagerly waiting for this feature to roll in India. I am sure they PayPal team will roll the feature for rest of the countries soon as it makes sending & receiving payment easier and secure.
