Sending money to friends and family.

Your PayPal account and app give you faster, easier and more secure ways to send money around the world.

Within Australia
It’s free to send Australian dollars to friends in Australia when you use your PayPal balance or linked bank account. There’s just a 2.6% + $0.30 fee on any portion funded by your credit or debit card.

Overseas
No matter how much you send, or where you send it, there’s a flat fee of $5.99 when you send money to friends overseas. An additional 2.6% plus a small fixed fee (based on currency) applies to any portion funded by your credit or debit card.

Don’t forget, a currency conversion fee may apply to either the sender or recipient.
