Send money abroad at the speed of light.

We make it quick. Super quick. In most cases, whoever you transfer money to can start using it within seconds. We think that’s pretty awesome. Whereas many other international money transfer services take days before anyone can use that money.

As easy as an email.

All you need is the email address or mobile number of the person you’re sending money to. You don’t need any of their bank details. That means you can forget asking them for sort codes, account numbers, IBANs and SWIFTs. Now that’s money transfers made easy.

People make the world go round.

Whoever you’re sending money to will need a PayPal account to access the money, but with over million people already using us, they probably already do. If they don’t, we’ll email or text them so they can set up a PayPal account simply and easily. We’re available in at least 25 currencies and 202 countries.

We’re here for you, wherever you are and wherever they are.

Peace of mind.

Transferring money abroad through PayPal is safer than sending cash or giving others your bank details. Every transaction is protected by fraud protection, 24-hour monitoring and advanced encryption.

More about security

Different reasons, same solution.

There are many reasons we transfer money abroad. Perhaps it’s sending money overseas for a friend’s birthday, helping out your son or daughter at university, or sending hard-earned money back home. Maybe it’s something completely different. Whatever the reason, PayPal is here to make it easier, quicker and more secure to send your money overseas.

Sending money abroad just got easy.
