Long story, but someone has said she can't pay by bank transfer until next week, but can pay by Paypal today to secure her places. She has already had a fair amount of trial sessions. I'm a bit wary of Paypal, but I know people think it is easy. What do you think? My understanding is that if I send her a link and the amount (as she is requesting), neither of us is protected unless I register as a business, which I should. Is it complicated to register as a business, and can I just send an invoice. My name is different on my Paypal account and I'm afraid they may think there is something strange and freeze the amount. Or should I just use my usual Paypal name? It seems a lot of hassle, but I did ask her first for payment about 10 days ago. I don't really want to wait till next week, which would mean either giving her more free lessons, or stopping and interrupting the teaching while I wait for payment. Also, how soon will the payment actually clear with Paypal.... because if it's a good few days....... Not sure if I'm over complicating this or being sensibly cautious...?
