Found 5th Apr 2009
Hi guys,

I am about to send a paypal gift to a friend in America for £250, and just wanted to know if anyone knew the exchange rate paypal are currently charging?

If I was to send in GBP, would the receiver get it in USD if he has an American account?

Also, if I send by paypal gift, although he is in USA, none of us will need to pay any 'extra' fees?

Cheers guys!

Thanks for the reply guys!
Looked at the paypal link, and from what I can see, I need to send it in USD first, which isnt a problem!

Anyone know of any recent exchange rates, in the past couple of days, just so I have an average figure to be looking at.

Basically, what I want to know is: Will Paypal charge more or will sending a cheque have more fees?

It was $1.44 this morning with Paypal.
Paypal rates are pretty competative compared to bank/tourist rates.
