|Fee relating to Settling Foreign Currency Transaction in Hong Kong Dollars
|Customers may sometimes be offered the option to settle foreign currency transactions in Hong Kong Dollars at the point of sale overseas. Such option is a direct arrangement offered by the overseas merchants and not the card issuer. In such cases, customers are reminded to ask the merchants for the foreign currency exchange rates and the percentage of handling fees to be applied before the transactions are entered into since settling foreign currency transactions in Hong Kong Dollars may involve a cost higher than the foreign currency transaction handling fee. For these transactions in Hong Kong Dollars made outside Hong Kong, Visa/Mastercard/American Express impose a charge of 1% of the transaction amount on the Bank, we will charge the same on the customers (except for DBS Live Fresh Card). Visa/Mastercard/American Express also impose a charge of 1% of the transaction amount on the Bank for online transactions in Hong Kong Dollars with merchants whose place of registration and/or settlement are outside Hong Kong (based on the merchants’ setting), we will charge the same on the customers (except for DBS Live Fresh Card).
