I'm trying to send money as a gift, but I can't do it, when I click on send & request at the top, I don't have the options at all to send as GIFT, or even the other option which is "Send to family and friends"
Neither of these options are on my page, all I have is three options.
1- pay for goods or services.
2- create invoice.
3- request from friends or customer.
So I can request from friends, but can't send to friends? I don't get it, please help thanks.
Solved! Go to Solution.
How can I check for sure if it's not an option for my country or some other reason possibly? and why doesn't my country support gift? how can I support a streamer for example, or support a person without expecting anything in return, I should be allowed to give away my own money.
This is what you see when you go on the Kuwait PayPal homepage, and under the Personal menu, click Send Payments - Send money locally or abroad:
"Make a Payment in a few seconds.
You can send payments to almost anyone in exchange for goods and services, without sharing your financial information with the sellers. Use their email address and they'll get the payment in a simple, faster and more secure way.
Friends and family option is not available in every country PayPal services.
You can still "gift" someone money but it has to be goods and service option and the recipient has to pay a fee to receive it.
