How do I send a payment in a different currency using my credit card?


When paying in a different currency with your credit card, you have two options to convert the money.
  • Use PayPal's conversion process to complete your transaction using your card's currency.
  • Receive a bill in the currency listed on the seller's invoice.
When you are making payment, you can see these conversion options by clicking Other Conversion Options on the Review your Payment page.
If PayPal performs your currency conversion, you’ll be notified of the conversion rate at the time of the transaction.
If you choose to use your card issuer's currency conversion procedures, PayPal doesn't know the conversion rate.
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.
