    I have several recurring annual payments with paypal, which are billed in €. How can I setup my paypal account to ensure these are paid in € through my curve card, avoiding paypal's exchange rate and associated fees?

    PayPal charging for transactions in the wrong currency

    Thanks for that. I had no idea that the Curve support page was available online. The main site doesn't even have a login option. And then when I tried changing the settings in paypal, I wasn't even seeing the same screens. Turns out firefox has been caching the old paypal site and when I changed to chrome I was able to change everything straightaway. Head-melting.

    Firefox hasn't been the same for the last year or two I feel.

    I agree. There's something just not right about it. All the features which made it a necessity are slowly being forced out.

    Anyway, I managed to save almost a fiver using my Curve card rather than letting paypal do the conversion.
