Making a paypal payment
« on: July 03, 2020, 07:15:16 PM »
I'm trying to send money to a fellow member via paypal and have been given an address beginning
paypal.me/.............
but paypal won't recognise the account.
Is it something I'm doing wrong or them? Usually I find the paypal account name is an e mail address
 :confused2:

I've always done it by email address.  Ask them for that.

Ah, I think you're supposed to put that link they've given you into a browser, it should then ask you to log in to make the payment?

Never done it this way myself

It seems paypal.me is a business account and not a personal account. If I put the link into the browser it takes me to paypal and when I sign in and attempt payment the result is as before which is NO NYET NEIN NON etc

Spookily, I have just sent money to two paypal.me accounts today. They were both for musicians/bands doing online gigs and asking folks to donate 'ticket' money. I found that, if you open the paypal.me page and click on 'log in' at the top right-hand corner, it takes you to your normal Paypal page.

Don't know whether this answers your question or not, Mick.

Cheers,

Chris

That's exactly what I did from the link Nick posted, Chris but, once in my normal account, it wouldn't let me pay to a 'pay.me' address, insisting I needed a name, e mail address or mobile phone number or some 11 didgit number ???. I know there's nothing wrong with my paypal account as I've sent money to someone else since.

Ignore @Philip. Mick. I will not spend it. I will save it for you and let you have it back whenever you want, as long as you give me a bit of notice ......... say, 5 years.  ;)

Hi Mick,

Don't succumb to the blackmailers.
You don't need to send money to anyone.
Just tell them to publish the photo's and be d*mned

Whatever it was you did it can't be that bad  :laugh3:

i tried to send £10 to ngf, but experienced the same problem
i dont like paypal so dont use it unless its paying at a checkout with no choice.
to many strange e-mails in the past when they were hacked.
if you think paypal is difficult try using bitcoin, still cant find the .062 of a bitcoin i brought two months ago for £500.
be lucky  :no:
