How to send money with Moneygram through PayPal

MoneyGram does not accept PayPal as a preferred payment option, but there is a simple solution, as long as you have a PayPal debit card. You can usually request and receive a debit card linked to your PayPal account in 4 to 6 business days. If you already have it, you must enter the MasterCard card number and the details of the card as the payment method during the MoneyGram transfer process.

Open a web browser and go to the MoneyGram website at

Select the country, the method of receipt and the dollar amount. Click on the “Start” button to continue.

Click the “Select” button for a “Same Day” shipment, as this is the only method you can use for debit or credit cards. You will also see the list of transfer rates for the country and the dollar amount you have chosen.

Enter the “Username” and “Password” if you are already a regular customer, otherwise enter your email address and click on the “Go” button.

Complete the information requested on the next page. New customers will have to enter personal information, such as name, address, telephone number and the last four digits of the social security number. Be sure to enter the name and information of the recipient correctly, so that there are no complications when withdrawing money.

Select “MasterCard” in the “Card Type” located under the “Payment Method” section. Write the “Card number”, select the “Expiration date” and enter the verification number “CVV number” located on the back of the card. Click on the “Next” button to continue.

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