3. Selling with PayPal > 18. Ask for Money in Your Own Way

Ask for Money in Your Own Way

Generate your own PayPal payment links for use in email or your web site, and get a little more flexibility in how to ask people for payments. There are more ways available than using the Request Money feature.

Using Request Money [Hack #17] is a useful technique if you’re sending invoices to customers for items already sold or services already rendered, especially when PayPal is the likely form of payment. (For example, an eBay seller who accepts PayPal might use Request Money to send a payment request to a customer who has just won an auction.)

However, Request Money isn’t a good idea when you’re uncertain whether a payment will take place at all. For example, recipients might find it presumptive and uncomfortable if a fundraising volunteer used Request Money to send donation requests. Likewise, it would be inappropriate to use Request Money to send a customer a product brochure or other advertising. Instead, use a more passive payment link.
