How do I send a payment using my PayPal balance?

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

Here’s how:

  1. Log in to your PayPal account.
  2. Click Send & Request at the top of the page.
  3. Click Pay for goods or services or Send money to friends or family.
  4. Enter their email address and the amount and click Next.
  5. Choose your payment method, leave a note if you like and review the payment details.
  6. Click Send to complete the payment.

We’ll send the recipient an email letting them know that you sent them money. If they don’t have a PayPal account, we explain how to sign up for one.

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.
