Hi, I'm trying to send a payment to friends and family but the app is not giving me the option between the Friends & Family and Goods & Services. What can I do?
As you have not added your country to your community profile or said in your post then we can't help at the moment (Paypal varies a lot country to country).
I can't find where I would put in my country. BTW, I am in the US and the receiver is also in US; however, I have had this problem when I tried to send $$ to a person in India as well. 🙄
Firstly i don't think you can send friends / family payments via the app.
Secondly paypal account holders in India do not have the option to receive personal payments, they can only receive goods/services payments.
Thank you for your reply. Per India, OK. W/in US, I just tried to send my husband some money, and it still doesn't provide me the option. Seems strange.

Did you read my reply? Where i said i don't think you can use that option with the app.
Yes, I did read that so I went to my computer to send the $$ to my hubs, still didn't work. Doesn't make sense to me.
