How to Send Money via PayPal
Sending money via PayPal is a streamlined process. The eBay-owned company makes it easy to pay for auction purchases and send money to pay for other services too. Whether you're a business owner needing to send payroll via PayPal or an individual user who needs to send money to someone quickly, PayPal offers a number of options to make it happen.
.Log in to your PayPal account and make sure you have the necessary funds.
.Click the "Send Money" tab on your Account Overview page and choose the appropriate sub-tab, either "Pay Anyone" or "Pay for eBay Items." If you choose "Pay for eBay Items," you will be brought to a screen that lists all your recent eBay purchases from which you can choose the one you wish to pay.
.Enter the email address where you wish to send money, or select a previously used address from the drop-down menu.
.Input the amount of money you want to send and select the appropriate currency in which to send it. PayPal is internationally friendly, allowing for money to be sent to over 150 countries in 16 different currencies.
.Choose the type of payment you are making. You can send money via PayPal for eBay items, purchases from other auction sites, non-auction purchases, services received or as a cash advance not related to a purchase or service.
Click the "Continue" button and review the payment details on the next page.
.Choose a payment method other than your available PayPal funds by clicking on the "Funding Options" link. If you don't have enough money in your PayPal account and have a bank account associated with it, you have the option of sending money from your bank account in the form of an e-check, credit card or debit card.
.Click the "Continue" button and add an optional message to your recipient.
.Complete your payment by clicking on the "Send Payment" button.
.Check your email for a message confirming that your payment has been sent.
