PayPal is a free service for buyers

Buying (paying for something)

PayPal is free whenever you use it to buy something or make a payment.*

* If your transaction requires a currency conversion, we will use a retail exchange rate (the wholesale cost of foreign currency as denominated by an outside financial institution) plus a conversion service charge of 3.5%.  PayPal will always provide information at checkout on transactions that include a currency conversion. 
The currency conversion rate will be displayed each time you send a payment in a non-local currency.
