Where does one find the exchange rates for foreign currency that Paypal uses via API?

There doesn't seem to be way to do this. We use the PayOuts API and need to be able to tell the exact cost in USD -> GBP before we make the transaction. Anybody? There has to be a way to do this.

 

Where does PayPal obtain currency conversion rates and how ofter are they updated?

Thanks. I found both of these but the problem remains which is that you can only get the used currency conversion rate after your have done Payout. I need to know it before I do the transaction.
