be careful who you are accepting payment from. if someone is offering to pay you for an item direct make sure the payment is not fraudulent and then reversed before you send the item.eg someone buying an expensive item and wanting it sent to Nigeria or Indonesia etc.

 

If it is a friend or a low payment then you can send them a request invoice money from your paypal overview and select correct tab. Or send them the email addy you accept payments with paypal;

The e-mail address used for your account.  for example I have 7 email addresses attached to my account.  Lets say I do computer work and want them to pay with paypal I charge $35.00 up front I give them frank.computertech at gmail. dot om

they go to paypal clink on send money

click on no paypal account

enter my email address

enter $35.00

enter Credit card info

they get receipt for payment

I get email they paid

I go do the work

 

If I want I can give them my main email address I signed up with years ago and I will still get a paymant.

 

Thinks Paypal should give me a kick back for answering these questions.

 

You can also find these answers on the Paypal FAQ page.

 

simple as that

Heh,

 

I got the same thing that a lady says that she is buying from her son and wants to pay via PayPal. Personally, I think it's a scam.

 

If you are giving it a go, please make sure that the money is already in your bank account, and for whatever reasons that the party gives you to pay for other fees and all, don't bother.

 

This will be of utmost importance!

The person I'm dealing with seems "weird"... I understand I need to give him my e-mail address (the one registered with PayPal), but is there any security issue if he knows my name, my phone number (cell) and my postal code???

 

Thanks,

 

Pierre

Hi Guys,

 

In order to receive money into your PayPal Account all you need to provide to the buyer is your email address. Your email address needs to be confirmed within PayPal for the money to be received.

 

When you add an email address to your PayPal account, we send you an email to confirm that you own the email address. Click the link in the email to confirm your email address. If you don't receive the email, you can request that we send it to you again. Here’s how:

  1. Go to www.paypal.com/uk and log in to your account.
  2. Click the Settings icon at the top of the page.
  3. Beside the email address you want to confirm, click Edit.
  4. Click Confirm this email and we'll send you an email.
  5. Click the link in the email to confirm your email address.

Note:

  • Until you confirm your email address, you cannot receive money into your account
  • You also must confirm your email address before you can make it the primary email address on your account

Thanks - Siobhan
