Where can I find PayPal's currency exchange rates?

Here's how to view our current exchange rate:

  1. Click Details on the left side of the page
  2. Click Manage currencies.
  3. Enter the required information under Currency Exchange and click Calculate.
  4. The exchange rate is displayed, and you can review it before you complete your payment.

Here’s how we set our exchange rate:

  • We receive a wholesale rate quote from our bank twice a day and add 2.5% to determine the retail foreign exchange rate to apply to transactions that involve a currency conversion.
  • Our currency exchange rates are competitive with conversion rates used by banks and by currency exchanges.
  • When you withdraw money from your PayPal account to your local bank account, we automatically convert the money into the local currency at the time of the withdrawal request.
