I have account in EURO but conversion GBP->EUR still happened on payment


I have a revolut eur account and I had to pay via paypal something (in EUR) . However GBP conversion happened and a payment of 100 eur was 105 eur. How is that? and how to avoid this?

Please change the shop’s settings (and/or PayPal’s if involved)

Solution from @anon33247966

For future transactions, you can go on the Payments section on PayPal and then select “Pre-Approved Payments” and then select “Funding Sources” and then click on “Conversion Options” next to your card. This will give you the option to select the to select “Bill me in the currency listed on the seller’s invoice”. Then click submit and save. This is not a guaranteed fix but it should prevent PayPal from applying their conversion again.
