    Paypal - Paying in U.S Dollars?

    I'm looking to become a member of a website that is $12.95 a month and they accept paypal.

    How does it work to pay them and how much does would that cost in GBP? I know it's roughly £6-£7 but are there any extra charges because it isn't the same currency?

    Paypal pay in $USD anyway as far as I am aware, so no extra charges.

    but you have to use their conversion rate which isn't always the best...

    the paypal site says the conversion rate includes a 2.5% fee

    in my experience this is charges for paying in foreign currency or receiving it plus you know p&p going to be high as well. I always contact the web site selling what i want and have always found them helpful sometimes even directing me to a european seller that is cheaper or as cheap as them

    It's just to join a website so they won't be sending me anything. It''s just to get me full membership.

    So if it's $12.95... that's £6.57 + £0.16

    Not bad to me if that's right?

    yeah 2.5% isn't bad for small amounts
    i just wouldn't use it for too large amounts
