Using Revolut for better GBP / USD rates than PayPal?


#1

Hi,

We buy a lot of items from the US in USD, using eBay & PayPal and I’m keen to improve on the fees & poor exchange rate offered by PayPal.

When paying with PayPal there’s the option to have PayPal do the FX or pass it on to my card issuer. Does this sound like a good use-case for Revolut ? Presumably I can register my Revolut card with PayPal and then benefit from your better FX rates?

Is there any benefit to us opening a Revolut Business account (better rates, lower fees and the like?)

Many thanks,

Steve

Yes its a good solution but be aware that PayPal charges like 5% if the funds comes from your card rather than the PayPal account.
