Anyone else having problems sending money through PayPal????
I don't have a problem sending money if its an EBAY purchase but if
I go to send money with someones email address I get a message
saying that I can only send money to family and friends.
This keeps happening ane it never did this before.
When I put in my brother's email address I have no problem.
I'm waiting to see what PayPal has to say about this.

How does PayPal know who are your family and friends? Can't you simply say the person you are paying is a friend?

I just received some money from another PayPal user (without paying any transaction charges) but I guess the other person has a registered business account and maybe that makes a difference. I am also based in the UK and rules seem to vary depending on where you live.

I don't see an option when I go to send money to say that its family or friends.
This doesn't make sense. My email address doesn't have my first or last name in
it but my brother's does so its letting me send money to him.
Somethings wrong with PayPal. I'm curious if I'm going to have a problem
now if I try and give someone some donation credits.

last i used it, there was a tab you could click when you were to select the reason -- it was the second tab that had family/gift.

Are you using paypal.com or some localized version? I noticed that in some countries the paypal features/site are different.
(eg: paypal.be vs paypal.com)

I'm using the U.S. version of PayPal. When I called them on the phone yesterday they said that
they were having trouble with the SEND MONEY option.
I tried it today and still have no luck. They really weren't very helpful and kept me on the phone for awhile and it wasn't a toll free call. Also, they never answered my email request yet either.

There is a problem with the Send Money option with PayPal that PayPal knows about.
They told me a way to get around the problem so I could send money until the problem is fixed.
They told me to click on the Send Money tab on the PayPal home page before logging in and
that works.
THANKS AGAIN EVERYONE FOR YOUR REPLIES!!!!!
