Foreign exchange

We calculate our FX fee by taking the current rate and multiplying it by 0.005 (0.50%). This rate is then applied to the money you want to convert to get the actual fee taken by us.

1.321 (example FX rate) x 0.005 (0.50%) = 0.00661

£100 (GBP) x 0.00661 = $0.66 (USD)

So, you'll get $132.10 (USD) from the simple FX conversion, minus our fee of $0.66 (USD), which is $131.44 (USD).
