I just want to send money to France from the USA without hassle

I'm trying to send money (less than 100 USD) to a friend who lives in France. He/She does not have any American bank accounts.
I've tried to do it through paypal (they have a paypal acount as well) but i'm receiving an error "We're sorry, but we can't send your payment right now." This appears to be a very common problem
without a clear solution. My Paypal account is verified and I've just used my paypal account to purchase other things within the month, so I know all of my info is current and correct.

How else can I transfer this to them with minimal hassle and minimal fees ? I've went to my local bank, but it's $20 for a wire transfer. I don't have their account information although I can ask them.
I've found a few similar questions but they're all a couple years old and hope that a mefite has had a similar experience very recently with paypal or otherwise.
