Hello everyone,

I’m trying to send 50 euro to a friend paypal(Sweden) from my Indian Paypal(using ICICI debit card) as Paying for goods and services. I would like to know the charges ICICI deducts for conversation because paypal auto conversion fees seems high. Anyone has idea about ICICI bank charges for international shopping then share it please.

Thankks

@hogbus Most banks charge a fee of 3.5% as foreign currency conversion charges. BTW, your ICICI card needs to have international transactions enabled/allowed for you to be able to pay in another currency.

I have International services activated and added my card to paypal successfully. Just wanted to know about conversion charges and other fees for ICICI bank. Are there any other charges other than 3.5% ?

Thanks
