PayPal automatically converts USD to your local currency starting November 2016

If you’re surprised that you suddenly received Pesos (or your local currency) for PayPal funds that you usually receive in US dollars, then don’t be. Because just recently, this month, PayPal automatically converts USD to your local currency. It’s their “new feature”.

Don’t be pissed off if you are expecting US dollars from your friends and family, then you receive it in PHP. Because that’s how it works. However, you can still receive your funds in USD, if you ask your friends/family to send funds using the Goods and Services method (even if you didn’t sell or rendered any service to your friends. Haha). In this way, you can still receive US dollars, with a fee.

Too bad, everything now is with a fee. PayPal is awesome! So let’s not complain for this change, because it’s inevitable.
