Why are my USD Mastercard payments converted to GBP on USD paypal purchases?
Now if I was buying from the UK (which I have done) an item priced in GBP, that'd be fine. No problem. In fact, I later ordered a GBP MasterCard from GM to handle this.
But now I am trying to buy in USD with a USD card (yes, I'm certain, I've never ever used the GBP card as yet), but PayPal is converting the payment to GBP. Why? Is this due to some corporate set up GM is using? Is it another PayPal racket to gouge users on exchange rates? I don't have this problem on Amazon.
Has anyone else experienced this?
Thanks for your consideration.
