DCC

What is Dynamic Currency Conversion (DCC)?

Dynamic currency conversion is a service that allows EVO UK merchants to offer international Visa and MasterCard cardholders the option to pay in their home currencies, allowing them to see the true cost of their transactions at the time of purchase rather than when their credit card bill arrives. EVO UK offers this currency conversion service in over 30 currencies from all over the globe.

How does DCC work?

Authorisation

Your EVO Terminal will automatically identify international credit and debit cards during the authorisation stage.

DCC Offer

If EVO identify an international card, your customer may be offered the choice to pay in their home currency. To assist them in their choice, your customer will be able to view the foreign exchange rate, margin and final price so they can choose whether to pay in the local or home currency.

Settlement

Regardless of the choice your customer makes, EVO will always settle the transaction in your terminal currency, for the full sale amount.

Rebate

At the end of each month, EVO will calculate a rebate payable as a credit to your merchant services statement in respect of DCC transactions processed on your terminal.
