Last night i made another cash out at pokerstars using Marqis recommendation.

I first made a cash transfer from U.S dollars into Canadian they gave me 1.12 and fraction as exchange rate. If i had mde the direct cash out from U.S to Canadian i would have got 1.10 and fraction for a differnce of a bit more than 2%. Thanks Mraqis.

I have a Dollar account at Pokerstars, but I am from Europe so I would cash out in Euro. You mean I should convert my Dollars in Euros and then cash out? That saves me money?

How can I convert into another currency?

Good to hear it helped!

I know 2.5% doesn't sound like too big of a deal, but I feel when you think of it in terms of your overall winrate, it can really add up. While we're all trying to improve our game, to get the best return, it would be a shame, to lose it here. There just aren't that many ways to improve 2.5% on your net result, this easily...

or maybe conversion happened at skrill or paypal ? Smile

as for skrill its quiet high: For transactions involving currency conversion Skrill adds a fee of between 2.99% and 4.99%** to the wholesale exchange rate we offer.

For people in the USD, EUR, CAD or GBP countries, you can use the "trick" I described. Others will now pay a 2.5% fee if PokerStars does the conversion (and even more if you let your bank or e-wallet do the conversion).

Setting up multiple multicurrency bank accounts (in your country of residence) that can be linked to and matches to your default currency of the online poker site (as well as that of the payment processor of your choice) might help you to avoid excessive FX fees.

If you keep or spend that money in USD, and never need it in your own currency, then sure, but as soon as you get your bank to do a conversion, you'll pay (many banks charge a 5% fee for this).
Also banks will charge a monthly/yearly fee for such an account, which might end up costing you more than the conversion...

Probably most of us, would ultimately need the money in our own currency, at one point. Pokerstars was unique (and remains so if you use the "trick" ) for not charging a fee for currency conversions.

Wow, I might be hell of a lucky son of a b*tch, then.
No fees as long as you maintain minimum average balance!

yeah thx marqis once again, such a simple and elegant solution Thumbs Up hope that stars won't close the loophole (but seeing the new owners greed it looks like it's only a matter of time).
still if one has a skrill account in other currency than usd it's a must to do the conversion in the stars cashier before withdrawal to skrill.

I think Pokerstars are completely aware of this. On the 2+2 forum it is widely discussed. If you think about it, Pokerstars won't care too much, as the vast majority of players won't know about it, or do not live in a GBP, EUR or CAD country...
