How to link your PayPal and eBay accounts

You can link your PayPal account to your eBay account to pay selling fees, receive payments from buyers, and pay for items you buy.

Change your billing currency

You can change the currency you use to pay your selling fees once a year. You can pay in:

  • US dollars (USD)
  • Australian dollars (AUD)
  • Canadian dollars (CAD)
  • Euro (EUR)
  • Japanese yen (JPY)
  • Pound sterling (GBP)
  • Swiss francs (CHF)

Change your billing currency - opens in new window or tab

You won't be able to change your currency if you've got any overdue fees on your account.

After you've made a change, all fees related to new listings you create will be billed in the currency you selected, but any fees related to existing listings will still be billed in your old currency. You'll receive separate invoices covering the two currencies, until all old currency fees have been paid.
