Many of us provide a service. We do so because we wish to help others. However, we too must eat and so must be rewarded for our talents. This is a simple truth.
PayPal is providing a convenient way for us to collect fair remuneration at the time of service. It's called PayPal Here. The promotional video below gives you the highlights in a more entertaining manner than I can in words alone.
You do need a PayPal account to use this service. I created one years ago and ignored it until recently. That changed once Udemy started paying me for course enrollments by putting money into my PayPal account. It wasn't much at first so I just let it sit there growing a little each month. I decided to transfer PayPal funds into my bank account later when I needed a little extra money on hand. It all worked seemlessly. I am embarrassed to say my skepticism stretched the process into years. Yes, sometimes I am a slow learner.
Anyway, get your PayPal account if you don't already have one. Then simply signup for PayPal Here. It's free. You can download it from the Apple App Store or directly from PayPal!
You can create your own menu of products and/or services like the example in the video or just enter a price at the point-of-sale. If you wish you can setup PayPal Here to use your business name. You can even get a business debit card to make immediate withdrawls.
This is a great service!
