Overseas Transactions

All overseas transactions will be converted using the applicable Telegraphic Transfer (TT) exchange rate of the Bank at the time of billing. In order to mitigate local exchange rate movements, the final billing amount will consist of an additional amount of minimum 4.50%**, apart from the initially authorized amount.

This applies to all Card transactions done at overseas merchants /service providers and websites registered outside of Sri Lanka but billed in Sri Lankan Rupees (LKR) as well, since the settlement of such transactions from the Bank to Merchant occurs in a foreign currency.

**Rate is subject to foreign exchange market rate fluctuations.

Dynamic Currency Conversion

Dynamic Currency Conversion (DCC) is the conversion of the purchase price of goods or services from the currency in which the purchase price is displayed to the cardholder's billing currency. That currency then becomes the transaction currency, regardless of the merchant's local currency.

DCC is not a Visa / Master service, but merchants and ATMs offer it through their acquiring bank. At checkout, the merchant or ATM may convert the advertised price to the currency agreed by the cardholder, and usually assesses a conversion-related markup (over a wholesale exchange rate or government-mandated rate). The cardholder must be offered a choice to accept or decline the DCC and must actively choose the DCC option prior to the merchant or ATM processing the transaction. The merchant or ATM must accept the cardholder's choice; if the cardholder refuses DCC, the merchant or ATM must process the transaction in their local currency

Multi-Currency Transactions – LKR

Transactions performed locally in LKR at merchant outlets / web sites but the Acquiring Bank of the Merchant is not a Locally registered Bank. Hence the Bank to Bank settlement is in Foreign Currency.
