All my online business is conducted in US$. Can I get a Paypal acct for that? It didn't used to be possible
Welcome to the PayPal Community! That's a great question. You can receive and hold USD in your PayPal balance, and you can even send and spend USD from that same balance / holding. However, when transferring funds to your CAD bank, it will be converted to CAD currency. If you would like to keep it in USD currency, then you would need to add a US bank account on file.
Pro-Tip: Some Canadian banks offer USD holdings, this does not make it a US bank account. For it to count as a US bank, it must be added with a US Routing number and US Account number.
Hope that helps!

Could you give me some guidance on how to do this?
It always re-routes me back to Canadian banks when I try this.
That's a good question. Here's an article from our Help Center How do I link a bank account to my PayPal account. Please take a look at this and see if you're able to add the U.S. bank. If you still have trouble I would suggest you contact us. To contact customer service, please click Contact at the bottom of the PayPal website for available options, or reach out by Facebook or Twitter. I hope this helps.
