DYNAMIC CURRENCY CONVERSION

Let customers pay in their home currency

Available to our financial institution partners, Dynamic Currency Conversion (DCC) is an additional benefit that acquirers can offer businesses.4 With it, businesses can offer international customers the option of paying in the local currency or the billing currency of their card. This provides easy-to-understand pricing that can help improve conversion rates.

How Dynamic Currency Conversion works

At checkout, DCC identifies the billing currency of the card and asks the cardholder which currency they would prefer to use. Our DCC solution is available to acquirers with the Cybersource through VisaNet (CtV) program in place. We also offer integrations to DCC solutions provided by Global Blue and First Data.
