Sending money to friends

I have used PayPal for many years to send money to friends and family. I have a brother who needs money, and he doesn't have an email. He gave me a username to which he said if I send money it will deposit onto a MasterCard account/card he has. When I tried to send money, it didn't recognize that name. Is there a different way to send money to an account other than the normal way of entering an email?


Re: Sending money to friends

Hi @Retired_to_Peru,


Thank you for your post! I'm sorry that there's confusion. If you're sending to a PayPal account, you would be entering the email address or mobile number of the recipient. It's possible that your friend is talking about a different service for sending and receiving payments.


I hope this helps clarify.
