Rates published below apply to PayPal accounts of residents of the following market/region:
It’s free to use PayPal to pay for a purchase or any other type of commercial transaction unless it involves a currency conversion.
|No Fee (when no currency conversion is involved)|
When you buy or sell goods or services, make any other commercial type of transaction, send or receive a charity donation or receive a payment when you “request money” using PayPal, we call that a “commercial transaction”.
For the listings of selling rates, please visit our PayPal Merchant Fees Page.
When you send money (initiated from the “Friends and Family” tab of the “Send Money” flow) to, or receive money into your PayPal account from, friends and family without making an underlying commercial transaction (that is, the payment is not for the purchase of goods or services or for making any other commercial transaction), we call that a “personal transaction”.
The rates relating to personal transactions are set out below.
|No fee (when no currency conversion is involved)|
|Market of recipient’s address||Rate|
|Canada, Europe I, Europe II, Northern Europe, & US||1.99 EUR|
|Any other market/region||3.99 EUR|
Fees charged in different currencies for sending payments: We will collect the fee from balance in the currency in which the fee is payable. To do this, we may need to convert the fee amount from your sending balance into the currency in which the fee is payable, in which case the fees for "Conversions in all other cases" also apply.
|No fee (when no currency conversion is involved)|
For information about how we convert currency, please see the user agreement.
Please access the Currency Converter tool below to indicate the applicable rate that may apply to your transaction. Any rates shown are subject to change based on time and date of the completed transaction.
