Client Case Study:

Lifting Local Conversion Rates

Client Challenge

A German software developer known for its multi-media management tools relied on cross-border processing to handle credit card payments in Brazil – i.e., accepting orders in USD and then converting to Brazilian Real. This approach forced Brazilian customers to pay additional foreign transaction taxes for its products, decreasing conversion rates in this vital nation.
