How do I manage my currencies in PayPal?

You can send and receive money in multiple currencies with PayPal. 

In your Wallet, you can add a new currency, change your primary currency, close a currency, and more.

Here's how to add a new currency:

  1. Go to Wallet
  2. Click Add a currency
  3. Select the currency you want and click Add a currency

Here's how to change your primary currency:

  1. Go to Wallet
  2. Select the more option beside the currency you want to make primary. 
  3. Click Make Primary.

Here's how to close a currency:

  1. Go to Wallet
  2. Select the more option beside the currency you want to close. 
  3. Click Close Currency

If you receive a payment in a different currency, it’s automatically accepted in the currency received, and a new currency balance is opened in your PayPal account (excluding Malaysia).

In Malaysia, when someone sends you money in a currency that you haven’t opened, we’ll ask you to accept or deny the payment.
