If you don't ask, you don't get.
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.
No cash, no problem.
Say goodbye to the 'I don't have any cash' excuse. Anybody can send you money from their card, bank account or PayPal balance. Your request is simply emailed or texted, and just as simply paid.
Anyone with an email address or mobile number can receive a request, whether they have a PayPal account or not. Then they can pay you with their card, bank account 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.”
