Hi Linda,

I have used both PayPal and Square for international transactions. Both
will convert the currency automatically and both charge fees. My latest
transaction through paypal in euros charged me about 6%, which was higher
than I thought it would be. I can’t find the percent I was charged through
square most recently, but I feel like it was less than that. I prefer
square for most things, personally.

I am also curious about what others have found. Good luck!

-Julie Johnson
