thanks for you response @sharpiemarker , really appreciate it " When you add a credit card to your PayPal account, it's automatically registered in your local currency" My local currency is €, I am based in Ireland/EU and have nothing to do with UK and their pounds. I always pay in euros when using Revolut. Other then that , I couldn't follow additional steps while was doing the payment as the payment went through Google Pay. As my PayPal is linked to GPAY. Still don't get it how come PayPal has decided that Revolut and my base currency are GBP? Revolut is in the EU, it has IBAN from Lithuania. I am based in Ireland. Trying to connect the dots but do not see any logic. Seems like PayPal is playing tricks to make some extra cash as most people wouldn't bother contacting support over few euros. The only thing that I have in common with pounds is the old saying "Look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves"

hi Paypal and People, Recently I have purchased an item online for 399€. My PP is linked to Revolut card which is in €. Somehow I have been charged 413.44 as per exchange rate. GBP to € It's very confusing as I am based in EU, my Revolut card is also in € . The payment was in € and the item was shipped within the same country which is in EU. How is that even possible that Paypal is charging in GBP??? the Revolut is not even in the UK anymore. This is really making me disappointed. Same thing happen to my flatmate, when he used Paypal linked to Revolut card to pay for the Netflix subscription. Have seen so many posts with the same/similar issue here in the forums. Is this the way for Paypal to make extra money? Please advise, much obliged,
