You can buy anything with PayPal online all free unless it involves a currency conversion. This includes funding your online casino with paypal at Australian friendly online casino to play pokies in real AUD. But if you opt to play at an online casino that doesn’t accept your own native currency but some other currencies like Euros, USD or BTC then you obviously need to pay some fees for currency conversion.

If you pay in a foreign currency using your credit card through PayPal
When paying in a different currency with your credit card, you have two options for the currency conversion:
If PayPal performs your currency conversion, you’ll be notified of the conversion rate at the time of the transaction.
If you choose to use your card issuer’s currency conversion procedures, you won’t know the conversion rate. You’ll only see the foreign exchange rate or any additional foreign exchange fees until you receive your card statement.
If you use an American Express card, you don’t have the option to use PayPal’s conversion process. American Express takes care of the conversion.
PayPal charges the recipient a transaction fee for each payment they receive. Additional fees may apply for cross-border transactions, foreign currency conversions and other transactions.
If you are a businessman selling something and get paid with PayPal there are no set-up or cancellation fees, and no lock-in contracts. But there are Transaction fees.
