PayPal For Friend Payments

Reader Says: Use PayPal to Pay Your Friend Back

This is such a simple, but savvy tip. Instead of paying your friend back in person, use PayPal to pay her back.  Reader  commented on my post about different methods of online payments, and she says she uses "PayPal more for personal transactions (like paying back friends... it beats giving them cash or check.)"

There are plenty of benefits of using PayPal to pay your friend back. For example, you'll be able to do it immediately, and not have to wait until the next time you see your pal. Since you're able to pay her back instantly, there's less chance of you forgetting to pass along the cash to your friend. Another benefit to using PayPal is that you'll have a receipt that's saved in your account and sent to your email, so you won't need any paper receipts that you can easily misplace or lose.

That's a good idea. I'm from Germany where it is possible to make transfers between two people's bank accounts at no fee, using your bank's online banking website. I used to do that all the time, even if I only had to send someone 5 bucks. It helps you not forget it, since you can do it right away. And you can add a funny message if you want. It baffles me how difficult that is in the states.
