Will my customers in other countries have to pay additional fees to their bank?

Possibly. We'll charge your customer's card in the currency you specify. Your customer's bank may then add up to two types of additional charges:

  • A conversion fee to exchange the payment from the currency you specified to their local currency

  • A “foreign transaction” fee for your business being based in another country

If your account is set up to charge in the same currency as your customer's card, then they'll avoid the first fee altogether, though may still see the cost for your business being based in another country. This is unfortunately up to your customer's bank, so the exact behavior might vary.
