I am an Indian and i want to send a Japanese friend some money. The friend uses Paypal and is not familiar about Crypto. I want to do it anonymously as i can't let anyone know about it. Here in India, we will have to register our PAN number ( a govt. Id) in Paypal to transfer/receive funds. So i can't do it by my Paypal.

Is there any other workaround ?

Last resort would be to open a crypto account for the friend.

You can deposit crypto into P2P trading platforms such as Paxful and then sell it to your friend's PayPal account. I do not have an account and had to pay a friend in Mexico using PayPal as that was the only payment method he accepts, so I moved USDT onto Paxful and sold it there.

  • Ah. Thanks. So i move USDT into paxful and sell it , the proceeds gets credited in friend's paypal , right ? Sep 20 at 16:44
  • @investtech, yes, if you list your friend's email as the PayPal payment account. However, it would be better if your friend is online and can confirm that he has received the payment Sep 20 at 16:46
