Paypal PPFF: Send Cash to Friends and Family
You can send money through your bank account or your PayPal balance, without paying any fees. The person you’re sending money to doesn’t need to have a PayPal account. The amount of money that can be sent depends on the country. All major currencies are supported, including USD, CAD, EUR, GBP, AUD and CNY.
How do I send a PayPal F&F?
Here’s how to send funds with a PayPal F&F:
- Go to PayPal’s website. Click “Send & Request” at the top of the home page.
- Click “Personal (friends and family).”
- Type the name and email address of the person you’re sending money to.
- Click “Continue.”
- Type the amount you want to send. The recipient will receive a notification with a link to this page, asking if they want to accept your offer. If they accept, the money will be sent.

Why can’t I see friends and family option on PayPal?
PayPal’s friends and family option lets you send money to people you know via email. PayPal’s friends and family option gives you greater control over who you’re sending money to, and there’s no fee to send money.
However, this feature is only available to people in the U.S., Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, India, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
Does PayPal refund money if scammed?
PayPal does not refund the money directly to users who have been scammed. However, there are a few ways to recoup your money.
PayPal offers its users an online dispute resolution service through its customer-service website. PayPal’s IDR program connects PayPal users with dispute resolution experts.
PayPal customers are also entitled to a chargeback, which is a right with credit card companies. A chargeback can be used to offset an unauthorized charge.
A PayPal user is eligible to get a full refund if his funds are lost due to identity fraud. However, this refund will only be made if PayPal user reports the fraud within the 60-day time period.
Please note that PayPal’s 60-day time period begins on the day the user receives the transaction confirmation or the day the funds are credited to the user’s available balance.
Apart from PayPal, banks provide their customers with 90 days to report fraud, and in such cases, the fraudster will have to refund the full amount.”
If PayPal decides not to refund you, it will do so according to its own policy.
In order to file a claim, you will need to provide PayPal with evidence of fraud. This includes documentation from your bank or credit card company.
If you have not been scammed, you can also file a dispute with PayPal. However, this will only give you the option to dispute charges on future transactions.
If PayPal is unable to verify a transaction, it will move your funds to a separate account.
PayPal will release your funds if you can prove you are a victim of fraud. However, this could take several weeks, depending on how much evidence you have.
