How do I receive the money from paypal after someone pays me from an invoice?

I am going to send an invoice to someone for payment for services rendered.  When this person receives the paypal e-mail and then pays using her credit card, how do I actually receive the money from paypal?  Do they send me a check? Do they credit the account that I have on file wtih them?  Thanks.

The money is crdited to your paypal account and you'll receive an email that the payment has been received.

 

As long as it isn't subject to any sort of hold, you'll be able to download it to your bank account using the "Withdraw">"Transfer to bank account" link on the main page.  Just follow the steps that come up.

[ Edited ]

the same email you use to log into paypal with is directly linked to your bank account.  FOR EXAMPLE: you sell something and someone buys it.  you tell them to send the money to that same email you use to log into paypal with.  presto :smileywink:

 

hope that helps

 

 

p.s.  but they have to be aware to send it through paypal, and they must have a paypal account for that work.  like me transfering money from my own bank account to yours.  i would need a bank account to transfer money to someone in the first place.  if i didnt have a bank account, how would i transfer money then?  same goes with paypal.  you dont just go. "oh yeah ill go to paypal and send money, but i dont have an account"  .  probably made it even worse with this p.s. lol

That's essentially correct.

 

You can request funds using the "Request Money" tab - you can send a request for funds or an invoice through that.

 

They pay to the email you signed up with.

My customer dose not want to join PP.  He wants to pay with credit card.  How can he do this? Since it is a CC there is no reason for this person to be part of PP.

My customer does not want to join PP and wants to pay with CC.  PP tells me I can do this but how.  The process is demanding my customer join PP for a single payment the refuses to process is CC.  How do I get around this.

In theory, they're supposed to be able to do it, but I haven't found anybody that's been able to successfully do it.
