    I have a pending payment right now that is in Euros. If I accept it, will it automatically convert everything into US dollars for me? I've never had this happen before. Does it cost more for the conversion or whatever?

    PayPal is trying to take a huge chunk out of the price in Euros (a "recipient fee"). Fuck this. I'm gonna see if my guy can pay me in US.

    After all that I'm only going to get 91% of the value of the payment.

    edit - oh wait, PayPal stiffs you on the conversion as well, that's where the difference is coming from.
