 DYNAMIC CURRENCY CONVERSION

  1. In certain countries, the acquiring banks may choose to activate the feature of “Dynamic Currency Conversion” on their ATMs and POS machine network. As per this facility, the ATM / POS machine identifies the Unimoni Multi Currency Card as a card issued from a foreign country and prompts the customer to transact in their “home currency” (in the case of Indians, this would be Indian Rupees). If a customer selects the “home currency / INR” option, the transaction will be blocked. Dynamic Currency conversion in INR is not permitted in the Unimoni Multi-Currency Card.
  2. We urge you to note that as the Unimoni Multi-Currency Card is purchased and loaded with the purpose of using the Card in the respective foreign currency, the customer must avoid selecting any option that prompts for a change in usage currency, to avoid any adverse exchange rate.
  3. The “Dynamic Currency Conversion” feature may appear with differing terminology depending on the overseas bank.
  4. Unimoni will not be responsible for any “Dynamic Currency Conversion” related charges, in case they are levied on account of wrong usage of the Card.
