How to Send a Moneygram With PayPal

By John Mitchell

MoneyGram does not accept PayPal as a preferred payment option, but there is a simple workaround, as long as you have a PayPal debit card. You can apply and typically receive a debit card, linked to your PayPal account, within 4-6 business days. For those who already have a debit card from PayPal, you will enter the MasterCard number and card details for the payment method during the MoneyGram transfer process.

Things You'll Need

  • PayPal debit card

Step 1

Open a Web browser, and navigate to the MoneyGram website at

Step 2

Select the country, receiving method and dollar amount. Click the "Get Started" button to continue.

Step 3

Click the "Select" button for "Same Day" delivery, as this is the only method you can use for credit or debit cards. You will also see the transfer fee listed for the country and dollar amount you chose.

Step 4

Enter the "Username" and "Password" if you are returning customer, otherwise type your email address, and click the "Go" button.

Step 5

Fill in all the requested information on the next page. New customers will have to enter personal information, such as name, address, phone number and last 4-digits on their social security number. Ensure you have typed the receiver's name and information correctly, so there are no complications when picking up the money.

Step 6

Select "MasterCard" for the "Card Type," located under the "Payment method" section. Type the "Card Number," select the "Expiration Date," and type the 3-digit "CVV Number" located on the back of the card. Click the "Next" button to continue.

Step 7

Review and complete the transaction. MoneyGram will also ask you to set-up security information for the money transfer.
