Congrats! On your new paypal.me account.
Now you can share your paypal.me link with people via any of the social media sites or try going to the new link itself with your computer’s Web browser to see what it looks like.
Here’s a secret, though: when you share the link with someone who will pay you, you can hardcode the amount that they should pay you to avoid misunderstandings. Simply append or add the desired amount (in even dollar figures) to the URL before sending it out. So if I wanted you to pay me $20.00 USD, I could share with you the URL: www.paypal.me/gudtalent/20/. Try it, click on the link.
