What is a conversion rate?

currency conversion rates

If working in a global industry, you are likely receiving and withdrawing funds in multiple currencies. In these cases, you’ll need to convert from the paid currency to your local currency using the latest conversion rate: a pre-set rate to calculate the relative amount.

What conversion rates does Payoneer use for withdrawing funds to my local bank account?

Payoneer bases exchange rates on wholesale currency market rates obtained at the time of transaction from a range of financial institutions. 

In addition to applying the market rate, Payoneer charges a currency conversion fee.

What conversion rates does Payoneer apply for purchases with the Payoneer prepaid Mastercard?

The Payoneer card is a Prepaid Mastercard® card, and can be used worldwide at millions of online sites, in stores, and ATM locations that accept Mastercard. When using the Payoneer card to make a purchase with a currency other than the card’s listed currency, the conversion is based on Mastercard’s official currency conversion rates. These can be estimated using Mastercard’s official conversion tool.

In addition to the conversion by Mastercard, Payoneer applies a currency conversion charge of up to 3.5%.

Are Payoneer’s rates competitive?

While we encourage you to check other payment solutions and compare them with Payoneer, we are confident that our rates are among the best available. We work hard to localize our global payment solutions in as many countries as possible, which includes offering competitive conversion rates.

If you’re a business looking for a fast and secure way to receive international payments, at great rates, look no further than our flexible payment solution. Payoneer makes it easy for businesses of any size to pay and get paid worldwide, so you can focus on what you do best – growing your business.
