Buying and sending money can be easy, fast, and secure when using PayPal.
In an effort to provide customers access to critical funds, PayPal will be temporarily waiving its own fees for customers sending funds to Ukrainian PayPal accounts or receiving funds into Ukrainian PayPal accounts until further notice. Exchange rates or fees charged by a customer's card issuer or bank may still apply. Please see the fees for Ukrainian personal accounts page and this Help Center article for updates and more information about our services for Ukrainian customers.
You can find details about changes to our rates and fees and when they will apply on our Policy Updates Page or as otherwise required by the user agreement. You can also get to the Policy Updates Page by clicking ‘Legal’ at the bottom of any webpage and then selecting ‘Policy Updates'.
