I receive some of my payments in GBP and know how to manually convert the GBP funds to USD.  Is there a way to set up my PayPal  account so that any payments received in GBP will automatically be converted to USD?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi Jana-in-Texas,

 

There is no option for automatic conversion at this time, but you may manually convert the funds periodically by clicking PayPal balance and then Manage currencies.

 

If you set your prices in USD, currency conversion would happen on the buyer's side. I definitely understand the need to set prices in GBP to more readily entice buyers who use that currency, however.

 

I hope this helps!

Hello Olivia ~ Thank you for your response.  I list on eBay US and eBay UK and, of course, receive payments in GBP when items on eBay UK sell.  It would be great if there was an automatic way to transfer funds from GBP to USD but until that happens (hint, hint), I will continue to transfer/convert funds manually. Have a great day! Jan
