There is little security concern when you send an email address to anyone.
Because It reveals a lot of information about you.
And also, If you are using free email services then It looks so unprofessional.
But Don’t worry, now you can officially get a short PayPal URL like
PayPal.me/YourName which can be shared with your friends, family or clients to get paid.
PayPal Me is a faster, easier way to get paid through PayPal.
Just share your unique PayPal Me link with your customers.
They can simply tap on your link, type in the amount and confirm to pay.
They don’t even have to know your email address or install the PayPal app!
Your customers can also enjoy the benefit of PayPal Buyer Protection for their eligible transactions.
