How do I pay a money request or invoice?

If you’ve received a money request or invoice that you aren't familiar with, don’t pay it. Don’t call any phone numbers stated in the invoice note or open suspicious links. You can report any unwarranted invoices or money requests by logging in to the PayPal website or the PayPal app.

Here's how to pay a money request or an invoice:

  1. Go to Dashboard and find the request.
  2. Click Pay amount.
  3. Select your payment method.
  4. Click Pay Now.

Here's how to pay an invoice without a PayPal account:

  1. Check your email inbox for the invoice from PayPal.
  2. Click View and Pay Invoice.
  3. Click Pay amount.
  4. Click Pay with Debit or Credit Card if you don’t have an account.
  5. Click Pay Now after entering the information.
