How to Receive Paypal Payment from Clients

Sending and receiving payments have never been easier and faster with Paypal.  It has the simplest and most user-friendly platform that I’ve tried so far and that’s exactly one of the reasons why I am a loyal Paypal user.

After two weeks of negotiating a project with a foreign client, we finally agreed and closed the deal today.

And as soon as I accomplished the task, she asked me for my Paypal email address where she can transfer the payment.

I gave her my Paypal email address and I received it almost instantly. The payment showed up on my Paypal account in a matter of seconds.




It was just a small project worth $200. My client sent me the full amount of $200 and Paypal deducted its fee, which is $8.10, so I got $191.90 credited to my Paypal account.

Paypal fee might be a bit pricey compared to some of its competitors, but I don’t mind because the process of sending and receiving money with Paypal is indeed SIMPLE.

Aside from that, it’s also the most convenient way for my client to send Paypal payment to me.

5 Ways to Avoid Security Issues and Fake Websites

  1. Always make sure that the PayPal URLaddress listed at the address bar begins with “https.”

The “s” ensures that the website is secure. Even if the URL contains the word “PayPal,” it may not be a PayPal webpage. Some fake websites may include a dash/hyphen (-), numbers, or misspelled words.

  1. Look for the “lock” symbol that appears beside the URL or in the lower right handcorner of the browser. This symbol indicates that you are on a securesite.
  2. Never download attachments or click on links that you received via email. Paypal will not askyou to download anything for your account to work.
  3. Check your account regularly and use a unique password and change it every 30-60 days.
  4. If you think something is not right on your Paypal account, check the history of your transactions to see if there are unauthorized transactions on your account.

If it does, contact your bank or the company that issued the credit card or debit card on your PayPal account immediately and inform them about the situation.
