How do I transfer funds from a paper wallet/private key?

Jaxx enables you to transfer funds from a paper wallet or even a standard address through the Private Key, to your current Jaxx Wallet. This will empty the paper wallet address and add its balance to your Jaxx wallet through a standard funds transfer transaction (that also requires the miner fees to be paid).

There are two ways to transfer a paper wallet's funds.
