    paypal will stitch you at every opportunity just like ebay.

    LMAO
    yes that's true mostly
    however the exc hange rate varies day by day and is NOT governed by paypal it's governed by the banks throughout the world

    todays rate (in the banks) is $1.858 to £1.00
    NO curreency exchange service will give you that rate though, they have to make money even though they may not charge commission they alter the rates slightly to compensate so they dont give money away for free
    so $1.81 isnt bad at all considering todays NatWest rate is $1.7816

    paypal have always had decent rates on currency exchange (don't tell them or they will change it :D) - much better than credit cards and banks.

    Not quite right. The nationwide credit and debit cards give you inter bank exchange rates on purchases. I got 1.31 euros a month ago whilst banks were offering 1.25

    you could say that nationwide isnt a bank and you'd be right. :thumbsup:
