@sypamele You cannot transfer anything from your account to another. You can top up someone else's account as pointed out from @terencedaly but not transferable directly from your account .

Hi @sypamele you can't your payback directly to top up another account but you can claim it as cash to PayPal then top up their account

Hello @sypamele & welcome to the giffgaff Community

Sorry active airtime credit cannot be transferred between giffgaff accounts. However, You can top up another number by following this link https://giffgaff.com/topup/altruistic using a credit/debit card. Note this will only apply airtime credit if they wish to exchange the airtime credit for a goodybag from their phone dial 43430 , select option 2 and follow the instructions to covert the airtime credit into a goodybag.

OR they can do it online following the steps in this

Hi @sypamele

 

Once the money gets in your paypal account you can transfer it to your bank and then use the Top up a different giffgaff number

 

Or you could simply do a transfer of the funds from your bank to there bank and let them top there account up.

Both options will work
