How does someone who does not have a PayPal account pay into my account?

Hi @RAS59,


The PayPal Community welcomes you!


I see that you are asking about receiving money from someone who does not have a PayPal account. To make a payment through PayPal without opening an account, they'll have to have you send an invoice or money request to their email address. This will cause the sender to receive an email with either a detailed invoice or a simple note explaining what the money is needed for. Here's are the steps:

1. Navigate to the PayPal website and sign in to your account.
2. Click the "Request Money" tab at the top of the screen.
3. Click "Request Money."
4. Enter the recipients email address in the Recipient's Email Address field.
5. Enter the amount that you are requesting in the Amount field.

Then you continue to send the request. 


I hope this helps!


Thank you,

- Schae
