I know the title may appear to be a little bit spammy, but trust me the launch of paypal.me makes it super easy for you to accept payments.
Let’s say your out for coffee with a friend and you find you’ve left your wallet at home. Your friend settles the bill, but as you don’t like being in debt you can pay them directly if they’ve set up paypal.me
Here’s the 3 steps you need to do in order to receive payments:
#1 Visit Paypal.me
#2 Add your unique identifier, in my case I was able to pick andrewstark
#3 Link the page to your existing paypal account.
The extra hint here is that you can personalise the page further, and you can also add a number at the end to signify a specific amount. I’ve created the banner below to be worth £3 and will look at integrating it onto as many pages as possible.
If you take action on this and send me a tweet to share you page I might just be the first person to send you a dollar to congratulate you on taking action.
