Hi, currently I’m travelling in USA and have made a few tranascations with a BankWest Platinum credit card which has no foreign exchange fees.
Looking at my transactions, I’m shocked by the exchange rate, that is, it fluctuates significantly, buying as low as .38 to .62 between transactions. Can someone please explain what’s going on here.

Hold that thought, it appears one of the transactions is holding an extra $200 which I didn’t account for in the exchange rate. Hence no issues with the exchange rate.

Hey there @Vu, thanks for reaching out.
Glad to hear you've got this sorted - though if it is of interest to you, take a look at the breakdown of how international transactions are processed here.
I hope this helps!
