I have about USD 6000 in a PayPal account. I want to get it out of there and into a EUR or GBP bank account, in a way that that will incur the least charges, and enjoy the most favourable exchange rates.
The PayPal account shows the USD balance as Primary, as you can see below:
However, although I have opened a TransferWise Borderless account as suggested in one of the answers below, I cannot appear to link it to this PayPal account. It seems that the only kind of bank account I can link the PayPal account to is one with a six-digit sort code and 8-digit account number, as used in British bank accounts.
It appears to me that I have a UK PayPal account with a USD primary balance, and no obvious way of getting the USD out except by converting it to GBP within PayPal - which I would rather not do, as the reates will be very unfavourable.
