I used to be able to always pay in the currency of the market place I buy at.

Now Paypal automatically uses the currency of my credit card and charges me their currency rate. How can I change it back to always pay in the currency of the product?

Hello @Floigenkaspar

 

Thank you for your reply! This is a great question. You should see the option to choose your card's currency conversion rate during checkout when it's available.

 

Have a great day!

Hello @Floigenkaspar,

 

Thank you for visiting our community help forum!

 

I understand you're worried about the currency conversion charges. When you add a debit or credit card to your PayPal account, it's often automatically registered in your local currency. When you make a payment using PayPal that requires a currency conversion, we'll show you our exchange rate. If you’re using a card, you can choose either your card issuer's exchange rate or PayPal's. More information about PayPal's currency exchange rates can be found here. You can also reach out to our team through the available contact options at the bottom of PayPal page for additional assistance.

 

I hope this information helps!

Hello Bindu

 

Thank you for the comprehensive answer. I must have missed the option to use my credit card issuers conversion rate. Is there an option I might have missed in my own account settings?

 

Best regards,

Hi,

The problem is, when I use automatic payments like apple subscriptions, there won't be any page to choose currency. How can I change the default currency to my preferred one?
