Can Quicken be fixed to import correctly USD amounts for Paypal transactions in foreign currency?
The Paypal data contain the conversion from foreign to USD. When Quicken imports, the number that is placed in the USD amount column is the foreign currency amount, not the USD amount. When Paypal pulls from my USD credit card or bank account it correctly pulls the USD amount and that's what downloads for that account. So now I have $100 in the Amount in Paypal and $72 in the Amount in Visa, for the same paypal purchase. The $100 is the cost of the item in Canadian dollars. The $72 is the amount that Paypal transferred from my US Visa. If I look at the Paypal transaction history I see the currency conversion line item and can match to the item and manually change the $100 to $72 (and put a memo entry in for the $100 CAD.) That's a pain. Since the data are in the Paypal file, Quicken should be able to get the correct USD amount into paypal by filtering for the USD transactions.
