I am Italian living in Sweden. I have one bank account in Italy and one in Sweden. I have recently opened a PayPal account in Sweden and I have no problems in performing purchasing in SEK, but I want to perform purchasing in EUR as well. I can use PayPal to purchase goods in EUR, but then I have to pass through the PayPal exchange rate SEK -> EUR. I want to avoid this as I have "natively" EUR in my Italian bank account and therefore I rather pay directly in EUR.
So I added another currency to my PayPal account. Now I have EUR and SEK.
I wanted to recharge my balance with EUR from my italian bank, but it does not seem to be possible.
It seems that I can recharge my PayPal balance (regardless if EUR or SEK) ONLY from the Swedish bank and only in SEK. In reality I want to add EUR in my PayPal balance from my Italian bank and SEK in my PayPal balance from my Swedish bank. It does not seem to be possible.
The only way to circumnavigate this issue is to open a second PayPal account, that I can top up in EUR from my Italian bank and that I will use only for EUR purchases. This would require to have two email addresses, two PayPal accounts, etc. I would avoid that. Is there a way to do everything with just one account?
