Reserve Your PayPal Me Name NOW

On Sept 1st, PayPal rolled out a new feature.

According to this article...

"PayPal today announced PayPal.Me, giving people personalized links for getting paid. If you’ve ever wanted to send a PayPal money request to a photography client in a single, easy-to-remember URL, that wish has now been granted. But first you’ll need to reserve your name before someone else grabs it."

If you'd like the info from the horse's mouth, check out this PayPal announcement.

Here's some of what PayPal says in trying to describe the new service: "Imagine how much time you waste chasing down friends, family and customers to pay you back. Today, we’re announcing for the first time you can name your money with PayPal.Me: your personal link to getting paid back.

"PayPal.Me makes requesting money from groups of friends, family and colleagues suddenly so much easier and faster. Rather than following up individually, you can email your PayPal.Me link to co-workers to chip in for an engagement present for another co-worker. Or stop asking each of your fellow bridesmaids for bachelorette party payments and just send a group text message with your PayPal.Me link."

And here's where you get your own PayPalMe link. (https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/grab)

To finalize things you will need to log into your PayPal account (if you aren't already logged in).

You can only have ONE PayPalMe name associated with your account.

So that's my PSA for today.

Talk to you tomorrow!

(not mine... I wish!)
