How do foreign currency charges work?

When charging in a foreign currency funds will be captured from your customer’s card in the currency specified. The proceeds of the charge will then be converted to your home currency before being transferred to your bank account.

For example, a customer using a card issued from the United States is charged $200 USD. This exact amount of $200 USD will appear on their card statement, and the converted amount (in your home currency) will appear in your Pin Payments account, minus fees.

Note: Pin Payments supports settling funds in foreign currency in some regions. Visit the Currencies page to see what's supported in your region.
