Default Pay pal question-how to send $ from US to overseas

total newbie to this.

I know there will be a fee to do this. I need to send money for a friend overseas.
Its not a business. How fast does the money get there? Is it days?
Does your own financial institution question the transaction?
(its not alot of money and its not for a prince lol)

Hi if you go to your paypal account and click the send button, there should be an option to send money abroad. Sending to another paypal account is pretty much instant. Sending to a bank account may take longer (Days) and you can also send for the other party to collect in person at a paypal venue. I dont think your bank would query it unless its a very large amount. The fees to send should be displayed.

I PayPal my friend in Scotland quite often, just a friend that makes sweaters and such. Never had a problem it’s her receiving the money
