Good! I HATE PayPal! On top of all this, it's connected to our hero (ha ha ha!) the Orange Ogre.

I wouldn't call the fees hidden. Most places that convert currencies add the fee right on the rate. It's usually 3-5 pennies per dollar. Unless, by hidden they mean the don't claim to add anything to the actual exchange rate. I suppose it depends on the wording in the user agreement. I send money to UK frequently and if the exchange rate is $1.32 to the pound I will pay $1.36.

Mmmm I would not be surprised, but even if they did I use paypal to donate to animal causes abroad and over seas.
