I was paying for some goods from China. The prices are in USD and I expected to be charged in USD. I have bought this currency before the payment. I made the payment and unexpectedly I was charged in GBP. I didn’t have GBP because I don’t need it. I have PLN and EUR and in this case PLN was used to buy GBP on the fly. Of course due to additional convesion I lost some money paying more than I expected.
I was contacted with Revolut support, but they told me that they received the request for this payment already in GBP. They advised me to reach out the merchant regarding this. It seems that Revolut card was detected with its default currency which is GBP.
Using the terminal, I can reject the conversion, but If I have no influence on in which currency I will be charged while paying in the Internet, that ruins the whole idea of multi-currency card :-/
Does anyone have similar experience?
