How to Send Money Abroad via PayPal, but without Paying PayPal Fees.

Money Saving

This is something that kind of bothered me as PayPal charges a bit too much of fees when you'd send money abroad, so here's how to avoid it.

When you're on the checkout page, look at the bottom and you'll see the option of choosing how to pay with said currency.

Only works when paying with a debit/credit card because straight PayPal balance then you're forced to pay the PayPal conversion fees. Also, if you use the card "Curve" you can link a PayPal Debit MasterCard and no fees will have to be paid.

PayPal has been really good to me in that everything works and I get cashback on all orders, but trying to force customers to pay more is kinda crappy. Yeah, it's a business, but it's not like you can't send it with other websites (TransferWise is great).
