My payment is in LSD GBP too. No charges made by PP as far as I know. At least no charges appear in the PP account.

Who needs charges when you have a bogus exchange rate?

Above, I probably phrased my query in a bad or confusing way. Here's what I meant:-

UK PayPal don't show any charges but they currently charge 3% for receiving foreign currency(Non Sterling)payments. This is increasing to 4% next month.

I was questioning whether PayPal receives Sterling or Dollars from Alamy?  Does Alamy buy Sterling at a commercial market rate and then send it to PayPal?

HSBC in the UK is planning to charge around £12 for receiving foreign currency of greater value than £100, free for values below £100.

Cleared into my account this morning as normal (Its always been 3 working days from payment date for me). In Ireland in Euro. Shame the exchange rate is rubbish at the mo.🙂

Same for me, and that exchange rate is appalling!  However, every penny counts.  Onwards!

Alamy payments to UK contributors are in sterling. I've compared the rate with the interbank and the forex commission is about 3%.
