How do I send money?

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

Here’s how to send money:

  1. Click Send & Request at the top of the page.
  2. Select from the 3 options.*
  3. Enter the email address or mobile number to whom you are sending money.
  4. Enter the amount you want to send and click Continue.
  5. Review and confirm the information on the screen and click Send Money Now.
*If you're buying something, select Pay for goods and services. If you're sending money to a friend or family member, pick Send to friends and family in the US or Send to friends and family internationally.

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.

Once you send money, you are not able to cancel or reverse the transaction. Please check the details of this transaction carefully.
