Re: Donating through the paypal app

Yes but I used to do it every time a new version came out and the system from the web site did tell you all you wanted to know if you donated in AU dollars, in my case UK pounds. Since its so much cheaper than bank transfer, I now have a regular monthly donation and it comes out on the bank statement and it varies accordingly each month, making sure the actual amount at the far end is always the same.toggle quoted message Show quoted text

There is no way to answer that question that's meaningful in the long term, or even for hours at times.
Your best bet, regardless of the currency you're starting with, is to use Google or any web search engine to convert the amount into Australian Dollars (AUD).
Entering "30 USD to AUD" (sans quotes) or "500 JPY in AUD" if you were using Japanese Yen or "30 EUR in AUD" if using Euros. And that's if you're donating in those currencies in the app.
From what I can tell about the URL at the NVAccess Donation Page, it takes $30 AUD from the source you specify, so you'd have to do the conversion in the opposite direction, "30 AUD in USD" to know how much would come out of your PayPal account regardless of payment source.
Right now $30 US is $44.16 Australian. $30 Australian is $20.68 US. That will be different, even if only slightly, tomorrow. Exchange rates change moment to moment and are sometimes very stable for a period of time and others vary wildly very quickly.

The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing in the right place but to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.
