PayPal is a faster, easier way to send money.

Why PayPal? Simple. Because when students need money, they need it fast—and parents need to know that their money’s going to get where it needs to go securely. So whether you’re a parent or a student, across town or across the globe, PayPal makes sending and receiving money easier than ever before.


Send money at the speed of need.
You don’t have to be there with them, to be there for them. Make sure your student is never without the essentials.

Not just faster. Secure.
Send money for food, books or other essentials without giving out your full credit card or bank account numbers.

Pay the way you want.
Linking multiple accounts—like your bank account, credit cards or debit card—makes it simple to choose how you want to send money.

Make home feel a little closer.
Life’s not always about the essentials. Send a gift of encouragement or some pizza money to fuel those late-night study sessions.
