Stripe

Support

Which currencies does Stripe support?

Stripe supports many different currencies both for making charges and for transferring to your associated bank accounts, depending on where your business is based.

Charge Currencies

You can accept charges in your country’s supported currencies from almost any credit card and debit card—no matter where your customer lives—though customers in other countries may be charged additional fees by their bank.

There are two types of fees that a customer might see when making charges with an unsupported currency or from a different country than where your business is based.

Bank Conversion Fees

If Stripe doesn’t support your customer’s currency, then their charge will be converted into your default currency by their bank and their bank will add an additional fee that the customer pays to their bank.

Foreign Transaction Fees

If your business is based in a different country than your customer’s bank they may receive additional fees. This is up to your customer’s bank, so the exact behavior might vary.

Bank Account Currencies

Stripe users in some countries are able to connect multiple bank accounts in order to make transfers in multiple currencies and avoid conversion fees. In these cases, you can connect one bank account for each supported currency.

For a list of supported currencies by country both for customer charges and for your associated bank accounts, see below. The full list of currencies in currency groups 1 & 2 is specified below as well.

Default Bank Account Currency

If you have multiple bank accounts, you’ll also need to assign one of your bank accounts as your default. If you receive any charges that are in a currency that you do not have a bank account for, they will be converted to your default bank account’s currency.

Currency Conversion

If you charge a customer in a currency that is different than the currency of your associated bank accounts, we automatically convert those funds to your default bank account’s currency using the current exchange rates provided by our banking partners.

There are a number of online resources for conversion calculation, such as Open Exchange Rates or Google’s Currency Converter, that can help you estimate current market rates. However, these numbers can fluctuate and they may not reflect Stripe’s rates at the time of processing a payment.

Required Bank Locations

Bank accounts must be located in the country where their currency is based–for example, USD banks accounts must be based in the United States, SEK bank accounts must be based in Sweden, etc.–though there are a few exceptions.

  • Canadian businesses can transfer funds to USD bank accounts that are based in Canada.

  • EUR bank accounts can only be based in one of the European countries where Stripe is currently live or in beta.

  • GBP bank accounts can also be based in Ireland if the bank supports transfers via BACS.

Depending on the country where your Stripe account is based, you’ll be able to create charges in different currencies and receive transfers to associated bank accounts in different currencies. In most countries Stripe supports two groups of currencies that are specified below.
