Wtf is up with paypal? I just bought an item that was listed in British Pounds. The market exchange rate between British Pounds and US Dollars is 0.5407 pounds per dollar. Paypal lists their exchange rate as 0.5275 pounds per dollar. Is this some kind of racket that paypal uses to squeeze even more money out of us? Is there any way to get around this other than by sending the seller a personal check? Because of the discrepancy between the actual exchange rate and the paypal exchange rate I'm paying an additional $15. What a bunch of poppycock.
