How to get paid from customers if I have no website please?

18 replies
Hi I am quite newbie, do not know how to be paid (via my paypal account) if I send an email to my customers
through email.

I know that if we have website we can put a banner or whatever paypal logo there, but I do not have one, as I just need to send email for my product to get paid.

Could somebody tell me how to get paid through my paypal when I send email to my customers.

    In your paypal account at the Merchant services, explains how someone can pay you through e-mail or direct from his bank account.

    have a look. Also paypal has the condact us button down at the bottom of their page, and you can make them even a call to have more details on first hand.

    Best thing to do here is to contact Paypal and ask them.

    That's going to be damn difficult and pretty easy for anyone to disappear into thin air.

    Assuming you have a reputable relevant forum account that would help if you have good reviews.

    Well, it doesn't cost much to setup a site these days, less than $350 can get you soaring higher!!

      Sharon,

      First off, this thread belongs in the Main Discussion forum, not the Off Topic forum.

      Second, what exactly are they paying you for? Are you selling them a product or a service? If you're selling them a product, I would imagine you would have them send you the money first, and then send them the product (e.g. an eBook or whatever). If you're selling a service, then the payment terms should already be negotiated (e.g. 50% upfront and 50% after it's completed). If there is a payment due, you can send them an invoice (via PayPal under "request money"). You could send them an invoice for a product as well.

      It's just unclear (to me, anyway) what you mean by getting paid for sending en email... there seems to be a piece of the puzzle missing.

      I don't recommend selling anything and expecting to get paid after the fact with nothing more than an email, unless these are regular customers or clients that you know and trust. Otherwise, you may not get paid at all.

    Like Cali I'm a bit confused here too.

    Do you mean you will send an email to people and offer them something then they send you money in order to buy/receive the product?

    You say you can have a banner on a website but you don't own one but have one in your signature with a sign up boxes in there.

    What is the email you're sending and offering the customer? It'll be easier to give you advice. As Cali said though this probably is better off in the main discussion forum as we talk mainly about off topic things here like condensation, fried eggs and car washes.

    My PayPal > Selling Tools (Merchant Services) > My Saved Buttons > Create new button

    When you're done: View Code > Email (will show a link to place in your email)

    Much less. Around $10/year for registration and $5/month for hosting, give or take.

      Hi Sharon,
      You can just tell them to log into their paypal account and click on the "Send Money" tab. From there they just enter in your email address, the amount they want to send, and select that they are paying for goods or services.

    You can add your paypal account to Jvzoo for example,
    and promote affiliate offers for instant commission, otherwise
    there are ton of youtube videos on how to manually set
    up a buy button in paypal.

    I use JVzoo and also https://www.e-junkie.com/ for my own products.
    Which when starting out, can host your products for you.
    They can also redirect to your download page, when you get one.

    A website is not that hard to do anyway. Nowadays you can have a starter page, put your product there and get the code of the paypal button related to the product and add the codes to the page. It will give a button that clients click on and goes straight to your paypal account.

    According to me, if you have no website but you are selling products, most of the customers will not believe you. Then you can continue your business at a slow motion. You can take money via PAYPAL, SKRILL, Western Union, Money gram or, something like these.

    If you want somebody to pay you, just give them your PayPal address and they can pay you. You don't need a site or anything else if you don't want to have them.

    If you have the customers, get paid does not matter. If you can sell your product, you can take money via PAYPAL/ SKRILL/ PAYONEER/ WESTERN UNION something like these. There are more online payment options are available.
