    Hey!I won a UK auction for £45, around US$ 60.But PayPal/eBay want to take from me US$ 44 to transform my US$60 into the £45 so I can pay the seller.

    I don't want to pay more than US$100 for this shit, Can someone help me?

    I contacted the seller about it If I could send him the payment separetely, sending him the exact amount in dollars.I believe I won't have to pay this super super super super big fee and so won't him, right? Because I received once a payment in EUR and I had to pay a small fee only for transforming the EUR into USD to my paypal account.

    Well ... i think they give you equal amount of £ for your $ If you think that they want 44$ just for currency exchange

    PayPal charges either a 2.5% or 2.6% conversion fee. That is why you are being charged. You might try sending him a Western Union online M.O. of course this going to cost arond $25.00 but that will keep you under the 100.00 mark.

    As far as i can see your paying the correct amount the figure at the bottom is the total
    buying price. why don't you just go into manage currencies create a £ account, convert
    your money there and send the seller £'s I have $, £ and euro currencies available in my paypal it takes the hastle out when dealing internationally.

    Don't do this as you may never receive your item. Even is a legit seller paying through WU is bad. He could never admit that you payed him since there`s no proof.

    WU is certainly risky and you'd only want to do that with someone you trust. On the other hand I sent $hundreds to Russia for Hrumer and it came through fine.
