Summary

Oversea Transaction in foreign currency


In short, all credit card transaction done in foreign currency is set by VISA International, MasterCard International & American
Express International depending on the type of credit type used for the transaction. In short all credits cards regardless of which bank
you used will be using the same forex rate. However the obvious difference from sg credit card and msia credit card is that sg credit
cards emphasize on the conversation of foreign currency to USD and then convert to SGD and msia credit card just indicated that the
foreign currency will be converted msia ringgit. Despite all the description, the forex is still determined by VISA International,
MasterCard International & American Express International.

VISA International, MasterCard International charges 1% fee on converted Singapore amount and American Express International
charges 2% fee on converted Singapore amount.

Oversea Transaction in SGD
For all transaction converted to SGD by merchants or cash drawn from atm, the merchants determined the forex rate. However VISA
International, and MasterCard International charges 0.8% of the relevant transaction amount. There is no fee imposed by the credit
card banks.

The obvious difference for those banks credit cards is their administration/ transaction fees. Some indicate it is based on foreign
currency, some indicated based on converted sg amount and the remaning did not indicate. Whatever it is, most of the time the bank
will choose the one that charges more.

On top of VISA International, MasterCard International charges 1% fee and American Express International charges 2% fee:

Foreign Currency Transactions
1. All foreign currency transactions effected in a foreign currency other than US Dollars will be converted into US Dollars
before being converted into Singapore Dollars(the "converted Singapore Dollars amount"). The exchange rate may differ
from the rate in effect on the date of the transaction due to market fluctuations. Any rate imposed is final and conclusive and
you bear all exchange risks, loss, commission, and other bank costs which may be incurred as a result. All conversions will be
based on the prevailing wholesale interbank rates or the government-mandated rate, as shall be determined by the respective
card associations, namely Visa Inc. ("Visa") or MasterCard International ("MasterCard").
2. In addition, all foreign currency transactions (including overseas and online transactions) charged to Visa / MasterCard cards
will be subject to: (i) a prevailing charge of 1% of the converted Singapore Dollar amount representing the charge imposed
by Visa / MasterCard on the transaction; and (ii) a prevailing fee of 2.5% of the converted Singapore Dollars amount.
Dynamic Currency Conversion
1. If your foreign currency transactions (including overseas and online transactions) are converted into Singapore Dollars via

DCC service provider and not by us.
2. In addition, all foreign currency transactions (including overseas and online transactions) converted via DCC will be subject to
a prevailing charge of 0.8% of the transaction amount representing the charge imposed by Visa / MasterCard on the transaction.
Singapore Dollar Transactions Processed Overseas
If you enter into Singapore Dollar transactions with: (i) a local merchant that routes its payment processing through an overseas
intermediary; or (ii) a merchant that is registered by its acquiring bank (the "Acquirer") as having been acquired overseas, regardless
of where the merchant is actually located, such transactions will be subject to a prevailing charge of 0.8% of the relevant transaction
amount representing the charge imposed by Visa / MasterCard on the transaction.
In both these cases the transaction is treated as a foreign currency transaction and the process of conversion and the exchange rate
