Paypal doesn't let me pay in my preferred currency

I want to pay an order in dollars, but Paypal charges me in my local currency even if i pay from a dollar card (obviously taking fees to exchange it twice: back and forth). I have selected USD as my primary currency in my PayPal account, this doesn't help

It turned out that only fully verified accounts have a possibility to choose the currency. Anyone with my problem should complete a registration form and provide an ID scan, that will help!

When you pay, look for a link called “View Currency Conversion options” near the exchange rate before finalizing payment.
