Bank Deal: Earn 1.00% APY on an FDIC-insured savings account at Barclays.
Did you know that you can make PayPal payments using your cell phone? And I’m not talking here about a fancy-schmancy web-enabled phone, although that would allow you to simply surf on over to PayPal.com. Rather, I’m talking about a run-of-the-mill cell phone. Here’s the deal…
First off, you need to activate your phone. You can then send money to a friend’s phone number or e-mail address simply by sending a text message like this:
send 10 to 2025551414
or simply this:
or maybe this:
send 10 to [email protected]
to 729725 (PAYPAL). PayPal will then call or text you to confirm your PIN.
Alternatively, you can call PayPal at 1-800-4PAYPAL (1-800-472-9725) to send money. Thus, you can take advantage of this even if your phone isn’t capable of texting.
Currently, the following U.S. carriers can handle PayPal Mobile for texting:
T-Mobile (regular and pre-paid)
While I realize this has been around for a little while, I still thought it was worth mentioning. In fact, this sort of technology (if widely adopted) could revolutionize person-to-person transactions, as you’d be able to effectively pay individuals electronically while out and about.
