HOW DCC WORKS
Dynamic Currency Conversion is a service provided at our terminals and means that conversion into your customers' home currency can take place immediately and at the current exchange rate.
A device with DCC function recognizes the currency of the credit card used and offers DCC automatically. Your customers can then choose for themselves on the screen whether they want to pay directly in their home currency using Dynamic Currency Conversion (DCC) or in the local currency without DCC.
For you and your staff, this means that payment transactions remain as simple as ever. And thanks to settlement in the desired merchant currency, there is also no additional work for your accounting department.
