The former Beatle reportedly earned a cool £1 — or $1.57 — for his London Olympics opening ceremony performance on Friday night.
The less-than-impressive pay packet is said to have been a nominal fee to make the singer's contract to the Olympics binding, but Paul essentially performed to the excited crowd for free.
The 70-year-old's fellow opening ceremony performers, including Mike Oldfield, Dizzee Rascal and Emeli Sande, also received the nominal fee.
It's pretty cool that Paul, who the UK Sunday Times estimates is worth $1 billion, would agree to play for a global audience of 1 billion people for less than a couple of bucks. But then again, this is the Olympics and the publicity he earned from the gig will no doubt pay off in time.
Despite the performances being well and truly over, Emeli Sande told The London Evening Standard she's yet to see the £1 appear in her bank account!
"I got paid a pound for my work. It's there in print and I know because I signed the contract myself. Mind you, I haven't received anything yet! When I do, though, that pound will be truly special," said the 24-year-old singer.
Let's hope One Direction — who are reportedly playing at the closing ceremony — aren't expecting big bucks!
Rumoured to join the boys onstage to close the Games are The Who, Take That, Queen and The Spice Girls.
