Friends / family payments are only free if you fund it via funds in your paypal balance OR bank account, if you use a card then there is a fee.

Hello @travb5534,

 

Thanks for reaching out to the PayPal Community forums. I'm sorry to hear that you are having a difficult time sending personal payments. If the option is not available, it may be due to some risk factors associated with your account or the payment. I would recommend CIP verifying your account as this may resolve the issue.
