    There is a company in Europe that I would like to purchase products from but they sell in euro's not dollars. Does UPS offer a service where say America customers can purchase a product from foreign businesses and UPS will do the currency exchange? The reason I want to know is I want to suggest UPS to these folks as a way to broaden their customer base through service offerings. Would allow them to a more open American market for sure IMO. Thanks for any help from those of you who know.

    Have them bill it via your credit card and visa will handle the transaction / conversion for you
    at little or no cost. All of the major players Visa, MC, AmEx do it this way. You may want to call your credit card company and forewarn them of this transaction though so they do not qeustion it.

    The above is what I do when on vacation in Europe. So far, I have had no problems as a result.

    You will also ALWAYS get a better exchange rate using your major credit card. Same when you travel and use your atm card.
