New Delhi: Sending cash to your loved ones just got much better and easier with PayPal launching a new peer-to-peer payment service where users can send and receive money through URLs.
Called as PayPal.Me, the service allows users to request money through personalised links (e.g. paypal.me/username), which can be shared via email, text message or social media.
Recipients can pay from their own PayPal accounts by clicking on the link, selecting an amount, and hitting send.
One of the best things about this service as per PayPal is that - it will avoid the awkwardness that many people feel when requesting owed money from friends and family
After creating their profiles, users can request specific amounts of money by adding a number to the end of their links, Engadget reports.
While PayPal-owned Venmo, Facebook Messenger, Square Cash and other peer-to-peer payment apps are gaining in popularity, PayPal.Me offers an easier way for those who owe money to send a payment.
PayPal.Me has been launched in the US, UK and 16 other countries today, Thursday. So, if you live in any one of the 18 countries PayPal.me currently supports, you can sign up for your unique username today to enjoy the service.
