Hi Ranjith,

I tried other credit cards, it was costing me same. I didn’t get any benefit of using this card over credit card.


Hey @viresh323! All foreign transactions will be handled in accordance with the current Visa exchange rates, which are displayed in your Niyo Global app’s ‘Currency Converter’ menu. For the additional amount being charged during the purchase, you might need to check with the merchant. Most likely, there are some transaction fees, and taxes, from the merchant’s end.
