What is PayPal.Me?

What is PayPal.Me?
PayPal.Me is a faster, easier way to get paid through PayPal. Just share your very own PayPal.Me link (paypal.me/YourName) with your friends and family, and they can send you money for lunch, chip in for a group gift, or any other reason they need to pay you back.

Have your own business? Set up a PayPal.Me/YourBusiness and get paid quickly for the goods or services you provide. Your customers will love the ease and the PayPal Purchase Protection for their eligible items.

Your friends and customers don't have to have a PayPal account, know your email address or mobile phone number, or even have the PayPal app. They can just tap on your link, go to your PayPal.Me, type in the amount, and send the money.


Do I need a PayPal account to create my PayPal.Me link?
No. If you don't have a PayPal account, you can create one when you sign in to PayPal.Me. To open a PayPal account, you'll need to provide your name, address, phone number, and email address.

How do I create my own PayPal.Me link?
Just visit
PayPal.Me
to grab your link. If you already have a PayPal account, you're all set. If you don't, signup is fast and free.


Is it free to set up?
It sure is! PayPal doesn't charge a fee to open
a PayPal account or set up a PayPal.Me link.

Can I share my PayPal.Me link on social media?
Yes. There are several ways to share your link. The easiest way (if you remember your link) is to go to your preferred social media site/app and just type in your PayPal.Me link. Twitter and Facebook will recognize the link and automatically pull up additional data about it.

If you don't remember your link, simply go to your PayPal.Me management page, go to www.paypal.me and click My PayPal.Me to login. Here, you'll be able to share your link on Twitter, Facebook, Whatsapp (if you're on a mobile device), and SMS by selecting the relevant icon. NOTE: You'll be required to log in to Facebook and Twitter in order to share your link.

You can also copy the link and paste it into any third-party app you wish to share the link through.
