How do you deal with lower Paypal Currency Exchange rates?

by MindReality 2 replies

I'm from Singapore and the Paypal Currency Exchange rate is lower than my ClickBank cheque currency exchange rates.

How does anyone cope with this?

Do you set up a US bank account to withdraw Paypal Money and then transfer over to your Singapore or other country bank account?

    I've been using Paypal practically in the same month it became available to Singaporeans. Unfortunately, the low exchange rate is just a fact of life with them. You just got to live with it. Sure, you can setup a US account and then transfer the money over to your Singapore account, but unless you are dealing with 5-figure transactions, the interbank transfer charges are going to eat up more than what you save.

    I got really frustrated with the paypal exchange rates too, so I ordered myself a payoneer debit card. Saves me so much! Only problem is, when I withdraw from an ATM machine, the bank has their own exchange rates aswell. That being said, I've found a good one with a 1% fee. Not too bad when you compare it too paypal's 3 or 4% fee.
