PayPal is an online payment website used by both consumers and businesses. You can use PayPal for many types of money transfers including bill and auction payments, as well as for sending money to a friend. Money can be transferred from your PayPal balance, a credit card or a banking account in the form of a check, which is called an eCheck. An eCheck is not instant but takes several days to clear.
Navigate to the PayPal site and login.
Click the "Send Money" button from the top bar. Enter the email address of the recipient and the amount of money to be sent. Select the radio button for the "Personal" or "Purchase" payment type and click the "Continue" button.
Click the "Change" button in the "Payment Method" section. Select "eCheck" and press the "Continue" button.
Verify all information indicated is correct and click the "Send Money" button.
