I'm looking to purchase a high-valued item (>A$3.5k) from a US website which means I will definitely incur international transaction fees. As such, I plan to use my 28 degrees card to avoid this. My question is, if I link my 28 degrees to my PayPal, and ensure that my credit card does the currency conversion rather than Paypal, will I still incur the international transaction fees?
Is there are any other better way to avoid these fees? I'm only using PayPal due to the buyer protection.
