Accepting Payments


PayPal lets you choose what currencies to accept and how you would like to accept them. When a buyer sends a payment in a currency you hold, the funds will automatically appear in your account in the balance of the given currency. When a buyer sends a payment in a currency you do not hold, you will be asked to Accept or Deny the payment as shown below:



  • Accept the payment and open a new currency balance
  • Accept the payment and convert it to your primary currency
  • Block the payment
You may also set up your Payment Receiving Preferences to indicate how you would like to handle incoming currency payments.

Receiving fees will be assessed in the currency in which the funds were sent. Payments converted to your primary currency will be converted at a competitive exchange rate. Learn more
