Can I have my card charged in a different currency?

When you add a credit card to your PayPal account, it's automatically registered in your local currency. This is our standard procedure as your card issuer doesn't inform us what the actual currency is.
If you usually send your payments in the same foreign currency, you can avoid conversion costs if your card is denominated in the currency of the transactions you make.

To update the currency we use to charge your credit card, please email or call us with the following information:
  • the last two digits of the credit card affected
  • the currency you want to use for your credit card
► If you use an American Express card, you don't have the option to use PayPal's conversion process. American Express takes care of the conversion.
► If you use Discover, your payment will always be made in U.S. dollar.
