Dynamic Currency Conversion

What is DCC?

Dynamic Currency Conversion (DCC) is a service that enables your international customers, Visa® and Mastercard® cardholders, the choice to pay the bill in their own currency rather than the local currency. DCC from Elavon can convert Mastercard® and Visa® credit and debit transactions in over 60 currencies, more than any other payment processor.  

Your company can earn from the exchange, instead of the bank. With each DCC transaction, you receive a rebate, which means the more international business you do, the more you can earn. You will get your settlements in your local currency at the end of every month, as usual.  

Your international customers are able to pay in their own currency, and their receipt shows the amount in your currency, the customer's home currency and the conversion rate.  They know exactly what they're paying and what they'll see on their card statement when they get home  

In many countries it is common with a much higher exchange rate than what we are used to. International customers will therefor feel that it is a good deal to be able to pay in their own currency. If that should not be the case, Elavon Best Rate will pay back the difference to the customer. Please learn more at www.elavon.eu/bestrate
