How do I send money?

With PayPal you can send payments to anybody with an email address. If the recipient doesn't have a PayPal account yet, they will receive an email with instructions on how to open a PayPal account. If the recipient does have a PayPal account, the payment will be added to their PayPal balance.

To send money:

  1. Go to the Send and Request Money page.
  2. Follow the steps.
  • Pay for goods or services: these are payments involving a transaction between a buyer and a seller. For example when you pay for an item you purchased on eBay.
  • Send money to friends and family: these are money transfers for personal, family or household purposes. For example when you send someone money as a birthday present.

As soon as the payment is completed, the sender and recipient will receive an email confirmation. You can also check the payment in the Activity section on your account.

► A sending limit applies to unverified PayPal accounts. To check your sending limit, click on See how much you can send with PayPal on your account's home page. 
To remove that limit, simply complete the steps.
