MoneyGram does not accept PayPal as a preferred payment option, but there is a simple workaround, as long as you have a PayPal debit card. You can apply and typically receive a debit card, linked to your PayPal account, within 4-6 business days. For those who already have a debit card from PayPal, you will enter the MasterCard number and card details for the payment method during the MoneyGram transfer process.
