3. Selling with PayPal > 17. Request Money the PayPal Way

Request Money the PayPal Way

Use PayPal’s Request Money feature to ask someone for a payment, whether you need to invoice a customer or collect money from a friend.

Anyone who goes to lunch with friends regularly knows the uncomfortable feeling of not having enough cash to cover your portion of the meal. One solution is to offer to pay for everyone with a credit card and then ask the others for cash to cover their portions. This works out well, because the card holder doesn’t have to borrow money and it saves a trip to the bank.

But what if there are two or even three of you with the same cash flow problem? Then it becomes tricky. That’s when you can say, “I’ll pay with my credit card and the rest of you can PayPal me.” This way, no one has to worry about having the right amount of cash. The only problem is having to remember to send the money requests, but PayPal makes this easy.
