How do I send money?

With PayPal, you can send money to anyone with an email address.

Here’s how to send money:

  1. Log in to your PayPal account.
  2. Click Send money to a friend at the top of the page.
  3. Type the email address or mobile number to whom you are sending money, and the amount being sent.
  4. Click Next.  
  5. Review and confirm the information on the screen and click Send


We’ll send the recipient an email to let them know that you sent them money. If they don’t have a PayPal account, we'll explain how to sign up for one. PayPal members must confirm their email address before the money can be credited to their PayPal account.

When you send money, we use your PayPal balance first. If you don’t have enough money in your PayPal balance, we’ll use the payment method you select.
