So, I recently had a client asking me to send a money request in his currency, I think so he wouldn't get charged the fees? Is this proper? Or is it more proper for me to accept his request and do it? I only accept USD, and that is in my TOS. Technically, I would still be getting payment in my currency, but only AFTER I change it back to USD, which would in turn take out a chunk of what the client paid me. So am I in the wrong for not wanting to convert the money to his country's? I'm not certain, and that's why I would like some advice on what I should do.

EDIT 4/9/14: I want to clarify that yes, all of my transactions are done through Paypal. And thank you all very much for the advice! This has helped me out a ton, and I will let the client know that from now on when he goes to commission me, if he does, the currency must be USD only!

Yep! And there's no reasonable explanation for that.

None whatsoever and slightly embarrassing since I'd just put into my Paypal account a bit more than eBay told me, but less than Paypal ended up telling me. :/ Good thing the seller was very understanding.
