Why can’t I see the friends and family option on PayPal?
Sending money to friends and family on PayPal without fee is easy. It’s just not available on some accounts. PayPal has tens of millions of users around the globe, so it makes sense that they have specific account types for different use cases.
Whether you’re a freelancer, a business working on an international project, or you just want to send money to family or friends for free, you can do so using PayPal PPFF.
Why should you sign up for PayPal?
It’s free to do so, and it lets you send or receive money, buy online, or make purchases in-store.
You can use your PayPal balance to directly pay someone (either through your email address or mobile number) without opening a bank account.
The funds can be transferred directly to your bank account, but the person you’re paying does not need to have a PayPal account.
What’s a PayPal payment fee?
When you use PayPal to pay for a purchase, the seller adds their PayPal transaction fee to your total.
And, when you send money to someone else, the person you’re sending to pays a fee, too. The PayPal fee is 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction.
The fee applies to most types of transactions, including personal payments, business payments, donations, and cross-border payments.
Does PayPal refund money if scammed?
PayPal, the online money transfer service, is famous for its fraud protection. But its refund policy is lesser-known. If an item is never received or if the item is different than described, PayPal will issue a full refund, subject to terms.
