PayPal for freelancers—the faster way to get paid
Make it simple for customers to pay you quickly with credit and debit cards, or PayPal—you don’t even need a website. Use simple email invoices, your shareable PayPal.me link, or a portable card reader and payments will securely reach your PayPal account in seconds.
Why Freelancers use PayPal
Receive money easily and safely
You can create a PayPal business account with just a few personal details and start receiving money straightaway.
Access your funds faster
International bank transfers can take days, but payments reach your PayPal business account in seconds.
Accept more types of payment
Don’t miss out on a chance to get paid—let customers pay you with credit or debit cards, even if they don’t have a PayPal account.
Get paid by international customers
Safely accept payments from around the world—PayPal is available in 202 countries and 25 currencies.
Get paid via your shareable
With a PayPal business account, you can create a personalised PayPal.me link—for example, PayPal.me/YourBusiness—and then send it to customers by text, email, chat or social media. Think of it as a ‘pay now’ link. Let customers enter how much they owe or request a specific amount by adding it to the link—for example, PayPal.me/YourBusiness/25 for £25. Customers can pay instantly with their PayPal account.
Get paid through easy
Your PayPal business account lets you create email invoices with easy and free customisable templates. Get paid with debit or credit card, or with PayPal—your customers don't need a PayPal account. Request and receive partial payments and track unpaid invoices online. It's as simple as that.
