Hello to all,

Thanks for reading my post.


Send Money, Transfer Money or Pay Online with PayPal - PayPal

Sample sentence:

Add a card to your PayPal account and simply login with your email address whenever you<'re sending><send> money online.


Is it correct to use the present simple tense in the above sentence? If it is, is there any change in meaning in terms of perception?

Thanks a lot for any comments, corrections or suggestions!

    If you say whenever you send money, instead of whenever you're sending money, it tends to suggest that you log in after transferring the money — which is of course not true.

    whenever you send money = on every occasion when you send money / every time you send money

    whenever you're sending money = whenever what you're [in the process of] doing is sending money
