Please guide me how to send money as paypal-gift.
My account type is 'Premier' and cant see any option as 'gift' on my 'send money' page.
only options available to me to choose are 1) Goods 2) ebay items 3) services/other

Does Services/Other incur fees for the receipient ?

its under the tab personal
its under the tab personal

i'm afraid, i cant see a 'personal' tab. i can see My Account , Send Money, Request Money, Merchant Services, Auction Tools.

'Send Money' has got 'Send Money Online', 'Pay for ebay items' as subtab.

Am i missing something here ?
In the send money section just below where it says Amount there should be 2 tabs, Purchase and Personal, click on the Personal tab
Click on Send Money and then a they'll be a box with two tabs. Select personal and then Gift will be listed.

It still charges fees if you are sending from CC. It's only free on Balance payments and maybe Debit cards.
my 'send money' screen looks like this
Try changing the Dollars to GBP :thumbsup:
still no joy...
Then it is possibly a limitation of having the Premier account, it seems you are not the only one to have this

Post 28 onwards
I think i figured it out.

Gift Transfer appears only on the UK site[/U] before logging into the account.

navigation: Personal tab -> Send Money -> Send to a Friend
Then you can see Purchase , Personal sub tabs.
oops! it says This feature is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later. after putting in all details and signing in when prompted.
i have a prem account and my screen aint like yours
oops sorry its so big,, but when smaller you couldnt see, will remove once seen
is this after you log in?
