Can I accept Card payments in multiple currencies?

Monday, July 13, 2020

Card payments made through ArcartaPay are processed by the leader in fraud detection and protection Stripe, which supports 135+ currencies and is available for use in 26 countries around the world.

With visibility of 4 out of every 5 cards in circulation on the planet, Stripe will process almost any European or International card including, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, WeChat Pay and AliPay.If you are taking card payments in foreign currencies domestically - on internationally at a fair - ArcartaPay can be configured to work with Stripe to route these foreign currencies to your appropriate non-sterling bank accounts.

When configured in this way, ArcartaPay enables you to avoid on the spot mid-market rates and broker fees as defined by your bank, leaving you to work with your preferred currency trader.For more information, please view the FAQ: How does this work with an international bank account?

If you are using ArcartaPay to take payment in a currency that differs from your default banking currency - and you do not have international accounts connected to your ArcartaPay account - conversion rates will apply and will be charged at the current market rate and will include a small processing fee
