Here's how


Send 1p to a mate who doesn’t have a PayPal account


Ask them to sign up to PayPal and link their bank account or card


When they spend or send £5+, we’ll send you both a tenner

Even better, you can do this with up to five friends, so you could get £50 for sending 1p to five friends (just don’t forget to remind them to send or spend at least £5).

*Inviting Friends and Earning Referral Reward Terms & Conditions

By participating in PayPal’s "Invite Friends" promotion (the "Programme"), you agree to the following terms and conditions (the "Terms").

The Programme allows you to invite people you know to sign up for a UK account with PayPal. You could earn a Reward (defined below) when you invite friends to join PayPal through the Programme and complete an Eligible Transaction (defined below). If you are the person inviting friends to join PayPal, you are a "referrer" under these terms, and if you are a person who receives an invitation, you are a "referee."

Eligibility and Overview

  1. To be an eligible participant, each referrer and referee must: (1) be eighteen (18) years of age or older; (2)be a resident in the UK; (3) have a UK personal PayPal account or premier PayPal account in good standing (“Valid Account”) during the Offer Period (defined below); and (4) receive an authorised invitation to participate in the offer (eligibility for/those who receive such invitation will be determined solely by PayPal).
    • The Programme starts on 1 January 2021 at 12.00am GMT and ends on 31 December 2021 at 11.59pm GMT time.
    • The offer is limited to participants, on a first-come, first-served basis. The referrer can claim a maximum reward of £50 (fifty pounds) in the Offer Period for successfully referring 5 (five) referees that satisfy the following “Reward Criteria” (defined below).
  2. A referrer may refer a referee by sending £0.01 to the referee via “Send Money” payment in the app or web by providing the referee’s phone number or email address: (i) The referee must use the same phone number or email address to complete the PayPal sign up process to claim the referrer’s £0.01; (ii) the referee must link their bank, credit card or debit card to their PayPal account and (iii) complete an Eligible Transaction (defined below). An “Eligible Transaction” means: (a) an online PayPal checkout payment of £5.00 GBP or more using the referee’s new PayPal account that is marked as "complete" in the referee’s account; or (b) a person-to-person payment of £5.00 GBP or more using the “Send Money” feature in their PayPal account (sent to anyone other than the referrer) using the referee’s new PayPal account that is marked as ‘received’ by the recipient.

  3. Reward: The reward amount is £10 GBP. There is a limit of one (1) reward per referee Valid Account for the duration of the Programme and five (5) rewards per referrer Valid Account in the Offer Period. If two or more referrers invite the same referee, PayPal will credit the reward to the person who sent the £0.01 first, as determined in PayPal’s sole discretion. Rewards should post to your account within two weeks.

  4. Transactions that have been cancelled, refunded, or reversed by either the referee, referrer, or the seller do not count as Eligible Transactions.

  5. You may only refer family and personal friends and acquaintances. Additionally, you must not publish or distribute the invitation to participate that you received from PayPal in public locations (online or otherwise) where the audience is likely to include people who are not your family or personal friends/acquaintances. If you do so, PayPal may disqualify you from participation in the Programme and any successful referrals will be void, in PayPal’s sole discretion.
