Avoiding eBay PayPal USD Fees

(Ben Winchester) #1

I recently tried to purchase something from eBay.com that was listed in USD. When paying with my Monzo card, PayPal charged a currency conversion fee into GBP :slightly_frowning_face:
Does anyone know of a way to get around this? :slightly_smiling_face:

There is an option in PayPal which you have to change to stop PayPal doing the transaction in GBP and in the billing currency. It is default to using PayPalโ€™s method. I use this link to find the options https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_profile-merchant-pull-funding and click Conversion Options on the correct card.

The other method if you donโ€™t like clicking links is to log into PayPal, click the cog to go to Account. Click Payments. Click Manage Pre-approved payments, click Set Available Funding Sources, click Conversion Options.
