PayPal, a banking company owned by eBay, allows users to send money to another user from their PayPal account balance, another bank account, or a debit or credit card. Both parties must have a PayPal account to complete the transfer of funds. If the person you want to send money to does not have a PayPal account, she will receive an email or text message telling her to open an account to receive the money you sent.
Log in to your PayPal account and click on the “Send Payment” tab.
Enter the amount of money you want to send, then use the scroll-down list to select your payment’s currency. As of 2010, PayPal does business in over 150 countries and offers 16 currency choices.
Select the “Purchase” or “Personal” tab, depending on which describes the nature of your payment. Further classify your purchase by selecting among the following:
Click the “Continue” button and wait for the payment review page to load.
If your PayPal account balance is less than the amount of your payment, PayPal will apply the balance towards the payment and take the remainder from whichever account you linked to your PayPal account to as a funding source.
Click “Send Money” at the bottom of the payment review page after you are sure all the information is accurate.
