PayPal Me is ideal as a short-term solution for remote payments from customers who are okay about using PayPal. It may also be the fastest way to add a payment option on a website or crowdfunding page without having to find to a new payment system.
We do not recommend using it as the only remote payment method, though. Many of your customers may not have used PayPal for a while (if ever, in which case they have to sign up) and may be put off by the sudden requirement to use (or find) their PayPal credentials.
Nowadays, British consumers are quite used to entering card details on a checkout page online – they may even prefer the freedom of choosing any credit or debit card. At a PayPal.Me checkout, the payer is locked into using the card or bank account associated with their PayPal account.
Fee-wise, this is not the cheapest solution. If costs are your main concern, you can get a lower fee with no added charges for foreign cards through iZettle. But if you prefer using PayPal for everything – and like the flexibility of using one link for all purposes – it can make sense to pay a higher transaction rate for PayPal Me.
