Check the paypal exchange rate though if paying using that method. I always find them to be lower than the official exchange rate.

That's because the "exchange rate" is an average of the true buy/sell rate. It's easier to straight report the average rather than both seperate rates.

For the USA subtract about .02 cents from the XE rate to get roughly what Paypal will be using.

That's probably what he meant, as most currency conversions (banks, airports, paypal) adjust a couple cents/percent to make their profit, and some then add a fee on top just to be sure they make money.

Sorry yes I meant a full 2 cents, but when looking at the rate it's presented as a ratio so an xe rate of 0.92 equates to a paypal rate of roughly 0.9
