Here’s how to convert your balance to another currency: log in to your account, click ‘Profile’ near the top of the page, click ‘My money,’ click ‘Currencies’ beside PayPal balance, enter the amount you want to convert under ‘Currency Exchange,’ select the currency to convert the funds from, select the currency to convert the funds to, click ‘Calculate’ to see the currency conversion, click ‘Review Exchange’ to transfer the funds, click ‘Exchange Currency’ to confirm the transfer.
Do you have any idea why I don't have the option for selecting the currency to convert from? Its drop down menu is blank. I need to convert some MYR to USD.
Malaysian residents are only able to exchange funds with other Malaysian residents in Ringgits when using your PayPal balance. You are able to send credit card payment in the receipient's currency.
Hope this helps,
