PayPal launch Paypal.me for quick personal payments

PayPalME_1PayPal synonymous with paying for goods or, receiving payment for goods especially when using eBay, have now made it easier to receive direct payments or make a payment from/to family and friends.

PayPal has launched PayPal.me, a new service that makes requesting of or sending money as simple as sending someone a simple link. The difference here is that, it’s a permanent link for you that’ll never change.

PayPal.me have initially launched  in 18 countries. The signup procedure is so simple and straightforward you can sign up for your unique username today, in a couple of minutes. When you do, you’ll then be given a paypal.me/username that can be shared with anyone at any time. The idea is that you won’t have to leave your current app or desktop window to request money,  you just pop your custom PayPal.me URL into any messaging service and have someone wire you cash in a matter of seconds but obviously they need to have a PayPal account, in the first place.

PaypalMEChanging the amount someone pays you is also very easy, you can alter the amount payable to your PayPal.me web link. For example, paypal.me/username/20 will let you ask for 20 pounds (or your local currency).

PayPal says that payments sent between UK users will be completely free. In the US, there will be no charge for funds deducted from a bank account or existing balance. Foreign payments will incur a small fee, but users outside the US and UK will need to check to see if the fee breakdown differs in their country.

PayPal already offers numerous ways to ask for and receive money but, PayPal.me offers you an extra alternative.

PayPal.me is quick, easy and simple to use. The sooner you login and grab a username of your choice the better, as many will disappear very quickly. Get in today and  reserve your unique ID while you can.

Countries already linked to PayPal.me: US, UK, Germany, Australia, Canada, Russia, Turkey, France, Italy, Spain, Poland, Sweden, Belgium, Norway, Denmark, Netherlands, Austria and Switzerland.
