Where can I find PayPal's currency calculator and exchange rates?

Here's how to view our currency calculator and exchange rate:

  1. Go to your Wallet page.
  2. Click Currency Calculator.
  3. Select the currencies you want to convert from and to. The exchange rate appears automatically.


Here’s how we set our exchange rate:

  • We receive a wholesale rate quote from our bank twice a day and add a percentage 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 transfer from your PayPal account to your local bank account, we automatically convert the money into the local currency when the transfer is initiated.
