Dollars in Stock photography discussion and contributor experience Posted July 28, 2017 · Edited July 28, 2017 by Sally 8 minutes ago, Cryptoprocta said: We're not actually paid in dollars, but I've often wondered how much (if any?) we lose with UK sales being reported in dollars then converted back to pounds. Ok, so I have to own up to not having (yet) been paid, though once recent sales clear, I will be. So, are we paid in Sterling after a conversion of some kind, or do we have to pay a fee for PayPal to convert from dollars to Sterling? In which case, the question is why a UK company does this.
