Currency conversion terminal

Dynamic currency conversion


Let your customers pay in their own currency

If you trade in an area popular with tourists or business travellers, you can make it easy for them to pay in their own currency – with a simple card machine that takes both UK and foreign cards.

With a Dynamic Currency Conversion terminal, your foreign customers can see the cost of their purchase in their own currency. So they know exactly how much they’re paying, and feel comfortable making a purchase.


Take payments in more than 80 currencies

Dynamic Currency Conversion lets your customers choose to pay in their own currency when paying with a Visa or MasterCard from overseas. You can take payments in over 80 major currencies – and you’ll earn a share of the foreign exchange commission.

It’s convenient for your customers, and you don’t have to price all your goods in multiple currencies. That’s all done at the point of sale.

You’ll have a dedicated team of experts on hand, to assist with the installation of your card machines and train your staff to use them. And our helpdesk is open Monday to Friday to support when you have a question.
