Default Paypal question (Canadian-USD rate?)

Hey guys, I am a basketball guy who knows nothing about hockey, but I have a question to ask my fellow Canadians out there.
My question is:

Why does paypal say that my CAD is greater than the USD when converted (Meaning that CAD is worth more than USD)
But when I go to spend, the USD becomes greater than the CAD (Meaning that the CAD is worth less than the USD)

Example in "inaccurate numbers" to prove my point:

Paypal balance: $150 CAD = $160 USD

Sending payment: $100 USD = $110 CAD

I am really confused about this, can someone please explain why paypal is screwing up the exchange rates.

Because PayPal are thieves. They take a cut of the exchange both ways. Since the US and CDN $ are so close to parity it flip flops.

Thanks for the reply my friend, that what I was thinking but I didn't want to say it. I checked the actual exchange rate and it is basically DEAD even 1:1. Paypal HAS to be taking a cut off of both ends!

PayPal is A horrible she-devil that will suck the life out for us all. They are the worst. I hate them and if a legit company that offers what they do comes along PayPal can F- Off.
I live In NC and love hockey and it of course my brothers to the north and I deal with each other a lot. Its just plan BS. So your not alone NO ONE (that includes god) know what the hell there doing
