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.

  1. Go to the Send and Request Money page.
  2. Enter the recipient's name, email or number and click Next.
  3. Click Sending to a friend or Paying for an item or a service.
  4. Enter the amount and click Continue.
  5. Review the information and click Send money now.
