What is DCC?

Our Dynamic Currency Conversion (DCC) feature on our POS terminal provides foreign cardholders with the choice to pay in their home currency at the point of sale. The retailer can take a commission on each transaction. For example – a visitor from the UK makes a purchase. The terminal will recognise where their card is from an offer for them to complete the sale in pound sterling.

How it works

1. Payment choice

The customer chooses
the payment type

2. Payment details

The customer enters their
payment details, and their
local currency is determined
from their BIN number.

3. Currency choice

The customer is displayed the
amount in the merchant’s
currency and their local currency.
They choose the currency they
prefer for the payment.

4. Authorisation

DCC is available on Visa, Mastercard (incl International Maestro) and American Express.
The amount quoted at the time of the sale is the final amount the cardholder will be charged for in their home currency.

The Trust Payments DCC service comes with an exchange rate guarantee. This ensures that if the customer receives a better foreign exchange rate on the same day, the difference will be refunded.

Ultimately the choice is down to the customer and it is essential they make the choice. If they choose to pay in their home currency, they will benefit from full visibility of the cost of the purchase in their home currency using today’s exchange rate.
No, this margin replaces the foreign exchange fee charged by the card issuer, and Visa or Mastercard when your card is used internationally.

The transaction can be completely reversed/refunded – in the currency of the original sale. If necessary, it can be recharged in the currency of the merchant.
