Also, it protects both seller and buyer from fraud. For this reason, we will explain how to send a payment request on eBay.
How to send a payment request on eBay?
The first and one of the easiest ways to do it is by sending an invoice. This helps you send a payment request on eBay with all the necessary requirements. Such as shipping information, return policy, divide purchase prices and shipping costs or due date. In other words, it helps you provide your customer with professional features. There are several ways to send an invoice. The first one is with eBay, either My eBay or Seller Hub. In My eBay you should select “Sold” and in Seller Hub select “Orders”. Then you have to find your order and from Actions click on “Send Invoice”. In this part, you can add all the necessary information and send it.
Another way to do it is through PayPal. First, you need to go to the "Request Money" tab and click on "Create an Invoice" subtab. Then, select an invoice template or blank template and fill it out. After reviewing it you are free to send it to your customer. It is quite simple to do because PayPal requires only to add a buyer’s email address, but you can add shipping details as well.

Another option is to send a payment request on eBay straight through PayPal. This method goes without invoices, so you should definitely know your buyer’s PayPal email address.

You will find this option in your PayPal account by selecting “Request Money” tab. Then, click on “Request Money” and there you will find the screen where you need to submit your buyer’s email address and all the other necessary information.
