My Bank's default currency is USD and it uses this same currency for cards. PayPal assumes my currency is SOS (Somali Shillings) which is not true, and is charging me extra exchange rate (although there is nothing to exchange since my bank's currency is USD). As a result I m losing a lot of money, about 3%.
Even worse, there is no way I can contact PayPal as they have disabled email and live support methods.
I feel cheated.

You can also find all our available contact information by selecting the "Help and Contact" option at the bottom of your PayPal webpage.
Hopefully, this helps!
Thank you @PayPal_Craig for the response.
Unfortunately I do not seem to have those THREE dots in my account and the default currency selection is not enabled for my account.
Also the account currency account was USD before I updated my card which PayPal decided to set to SOS.
