How it works


Log in to your account. Enter your friend’s email or mobile number and an amount to send.


Choose the bank account or card to use, and send your money securely.


They’ll receive the money into their PayPal account or a link to sign up to access it.

A safer way to send and receive money.

When you tell someone your BSB and account number, you’re trusting that they won’t draw from your bank account, or write the numbers down where someone else might find them. When you send money with PayPal, all you need is their email address or mobile number – details you probably already have. Plus, you can rely on PayPal’s security measures to keep your financial information safer.

More about security

Send money for free.

When you send money to friends or family in Australia from your linked bank account or PayPal balance, it’s free for you and your recipient. You can also send money from your credit or debit card, or to someone overseas, but that’ll incur a small fee.
