Good evening,

I received dollars in my Paypal account. Once I accepted from Paypal to convert in Euro and then I send the money to my bank account. But now, I would like to try to send dollars in my euros account in France. Do you know what is more interesting, convert money with paypal or send dollar in my account and let the bank to convert? Does anybody in France know how much it is to convert in the bank?

Thank you very much in advance.

Dear Sandrine,

Paypal will not allow you to transfer your dollars as dollars to an account in euro. The only possibilty to transfer dollars as such, is to do it towards an account in dollars. You could try and open an account with an American bank (I had the same problem and called Paypal about it).

Kind regards,
perilla

Well, I did it and it worked (*) - maybe it depends on the receiving bank. Generally PP exchange rates are less favourable than those of most banks.

Are some 4% fees not enough?

(*) I always had the choice between "convert amount to € and transfer to your bank account" and "transfer amount to your bank account"...

Otherwise I couldn't receive all kinds of currencies - we have clients in 11 countries all over the world - and the payments always end up as US Dollars in my account. At PayPal exchange rates, which is a different story...
