PayPal wants to end the awkwardness you may feel when asking friends or family for money through its new peer-to-peer payment service 'PayPal.me'.
The service is a user-friendly solution and lets one request and receive money in a fast and efficient manner. Through a personalized link, users can request money from a peer through social media, email or text. A simple request can be made with a basic format sent out that reads, "paypal.me/username/20," with the last number indicating the amount of money needed.
This service is perfect for a large group of friends or family who often split bills. Another group who can benefit from the app are business owners who can use it to keep track of their incoming money or receive payments from customers remotely. PayPal.me joins a number of money-sharing apps on the market including Square Cash and Google's Android Pay.
