How do I send money?

To send money, you just need the recipient's email address. If your recipient doesn't have a PayPal account, they can create one after receiving an email message about transfered money.

To send money from your PayPal app, tap Send and follow the instructions.

To send money from your computer:

  1. Go to Payments.
  2. Enter the recipient's name or email address. 
  3. Click Next.
  4. If this option is available, select: Sending to a friend or Paying for an item or service.
  5. Follow the steps.

For security reasons, we have placed an initial money-sending limit for unverified accounts. To remove your sending limit, verify your PayPal account.
