From our experience PayPal works the best for international money exchange and the fees are reasonably high. If you don’t have an account, please create one. Mind that we have people from around the world and other platforms such us Revolut are not used outside Europe. We also pay for our deals with international partners using PayPal and we also don’t like conversion and transfer fees.
