Hi,

...

First of all the buyer does not need your account number. He can send by sending to your email address associated with the account (paypal recommends that you never give out your account number)

...

You can also send an invoice from the account, and all the buyer has to do is either use his paypal account to pay the invoice using either his paypal account OR can click on the button in this email invoice to use a credit or debit card.

...

Just so you KNOW you account number (which, again, I would not recommend that you give it out) when you first log in to your paypal account go to (profile) ... on the top-right of your screen ... then "profile and settings," and (you'll probably have to scroll down, but toward the bottom of that screen you'll see your account number, or merchant ID If this is a merchant account

...

Please let me know if you have any questions at all.
