Dynamic currency conversion
Your business will stand out from the crowd and offer its customers a new payment method.
DCC PoS Terminals allow you to offer your customers a value-added service, since the POS automatically detects when a multi-currency service can be offered.
It enhances customer loyalty, since they receive a more personal and up-to-date service.
All information is centralised, and the exchange rate is applied automatically, with total security and transparency.
No cost for your business. For accounting purposes nothing will change, because the money will still be credited to you in euros, just like a regular sale. You do not need to install a new terminal or replace your current one.
Customers can choose either to convert the value of their purchase into their own currency or complete the transaction in the local currency.
Because the customer knows the exact exchange rate and the amount of the transaction as they are making it, without having to wait for the end of the month./p>
DCC offers consumers peace of mind and the ease of making a simple and quick transaction in the currency of their home country. DCC offers consumers the possibility to complete their transactions in the local currency or in the currency of their own country. If the consumer chooses the currency of their own country, DCC removes any additional charges made by the issuer for foreign currency exchange, so the customer knows the exact exchange rate and the total cost of the transaction.
There is the option to cancel the transaction and pay in euros within the period of one month.
