When using the in-app currency converter, I find it’s use quite confusing and actually quite difficult to use in the field. At this point I’m not sure whether what I’ve observed is a bug or a feature…
Let me give a simple example of what I have observed: I walk to a shop in Korea and see an item I’d like to purchase priced 1994 KRW. I wonder how much is that in EUR.
I open Revolut, go to the converter, add KRW to the list of currencies and type 1994 on the KRW line. Then I’d expect to see 1.61 EUR written on the EUR line. Guess what? Revolut displays 1.40 EUR!
Here are some screenshots to illustrate:
What Revolut Displays when entering “1,61 EUR”:
What Revolut displays when entering “1994 KRW”:
Note: at the time of writing 1 EUR ~ 1240 KRW.
For having experienced this myself I know that if I were to pay for that item with my Revolut card, the charge would actually be 1,61 EUR and not 1,4 EUR!
Could you guys look into this?
