Requesting money with PayPal is an efficient and polite way of asking for money you’re owed. Whether it’s for a job you did or an event you organised, don’t feel like the bad guy for asking. Sometimes people forget – this is a friendly little reminder.

Ask anyone.

Anyone with an email address can receive a request, whether they have a PayPal account or not. Then they can pay you with their card or PayPal balance.

“You can request money and find out you have been paid in a blink of an eye, whether at home or out and about.”
