Change Currency for a PayPal Payment and Save Money
For payments Paypal uses currency specified by the seller. By default, it converts the amount to be paid to the currency your card uses by PayPal’s exchange rate and fee. This can be a problem since PayPal does not always have a good rates, especially with cards like Revolut.
Good news is that Paypal allows you to transfer currency exchange to your card issuer.
