Dear Paypal community,
Today I have paid using paypal for an item that I have purchased from Ebay.
I have chosen as payment method PayPal. My PayPal account has my Revolut debit card linked to it and since I am from Romania, my revolut card's main account is in RON. On revolut account a transaction of 122.99 GBP is displayed in the history (RON to GBP) and then on PayPal GBP was exchanged to EUR. Why didn't asked directly EUR from the Revolut ? All my funds are in RON on my revolut account. I had to pay 140 EURO (item+shipping) but I was charged from the revolut card in GBP then the GBP exchanged through PayPal to EUR and then Paypal paid 140 EUR to the seller.
The transactions were in the following order:
Revolut to Paypal:
711.51 RON = 122.99 GBP
Exchange rate 122,99 GBP = 139,94 EUR1 GBP = 1,1379 EUR
(already had on PayPal 0.06 EUR)
Paypal paid 140 euro.
Can anyone explain why did this happen? I want to mention that my PayPal primary account is in EUR, my Revolut primary account is in RON any my address is correct (Romanian address) on both Paypal and Revolut !
Did you ever got a reply from Paypal? Same issue for me today. Nowhere did it say I would be charged in £ and on all the receipts etc I have it just stands euro.
