It ONLY converts it if you are using a credit card or bank account.

If you have funds in your Paypal balance then they 'have to' be in the correct currency AND you need to mark that currency as the primary one for that transaction and then you can change it back to your own currency after making the transaction.

Are the funds in your Paypal balance in the same currency that the receiver accepts?
