⚠️Currency Conversion – Important Read

Please read this carefully before you start using the portal

Before booking a conversion (converting a currency to another), make sure you have sufficient funds available in the currency that you are selling.

Why is this important?

The portal allows you to convert currencies without a balance, in good faith that you will deposit the required funds before the settlement date. If you are transferring funds from India, this is not always feasible. It is thus best to avoid it.

What does this mean?
For example, if you need to convert USD to INR you should always make sure that you have a sufficient USD balance in your USD account.

What happens if you don’t have any funds on the settlement date?

If you don’t have any USD balance on the settlement date, we will cancel the conversion and you will be charged $20, or the trade cost (FX Spread + losses from currency movement), whichever is higher. This is usually around 2% of the conversion amount for INR pairs.

What should you do in case you book a conversion by mistake?
You should cancel the conversion as soon as possible so that you are not exposed to further currency movement. You will still be charged the conversion spread if the order has been booked.
