Exclamation PAYPAL QUESTION. please read if you might know

Hi

I need to send some money to someone by tomorrow and I'm thinking about using paypal. I have $0.00 in my paypal online thing but have enough money in my bank account. If I transfer someone the money today will they have it by tomorrow?

If not, what else do you all recommend I do to send the money? I called the post office but they arent sure a check will be mailed fast enough to get there on time tomorrow.

Thanks for any help,
-Matt

As long as they have a paypal account yes they can receive the money tomorrow but then have to witdraw into there bank account wich can take up to 3 days to show up so if it is a deal were they need the money for something you should try Western Union or MoneyGram or another wire transfer type deal.Paypal is great for paying for item online with instant bank transfers but not if you need the money instantly in hand.

In my experience, no. When I transfer money from my paypal account to my business account it takes more than a day.

Get their account number and what bank it's at and deposit money directly into it. (Only works if it's a national bank)

If you have to transfer it from your bank account, no way will you have it tomorrow.
If you have your paypal account linked to a credit card or a debit card then yes it will.
You have to be a premier member to use that function though.
I have mine linked to my debit card. If I have 10 bucks in there and buy something for 30. Its pulls 20 from my account immediately. But it also pays the item immediately

Odd, no matter when I buy something with a $0.00 balance in my paypal account it comes out automatically. Never had a problem with paying in that way. On the other hand when i request money from my bank account to my pay pal it takes like three days. But a transaction is instantaneous.

I have a paypal account and my checking account is linked to it. Even if there is $0.00 in the paypal, it will automatically withdrawal the funds from my bank. They should receive it instantly. Never had a problem before.

thanks for the help everyone

I ended up sending through western union. those b@stards charged me $99.99 for the send in minutes option. sucks seeing as some of my customers' workers told me that they only get charged between $10-$20 for sending money ("in minutes") to southamerica.


well im happy anyways seeing as my new axles and driveshafts are paid for. Gunna go pick them up on Sunday
