What is Multicurrency Support?

Multicurrency support allows customers living anywhere in the world to pay for the physical or digital goods and services in their own domestic or preferred currency, instead of merchants’ preferred or the default currency of the system.

Instead of forcing customers to pay in USD or EUROS facilitating them to pay in their preferred currency has a great advantage over the sales and transactions.

Millions of customers make cross border goods and services purchases across UK, Europe, US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and other countries in Asia, Africa, and Oceania, every day. To serve global customers, SaaS and subscription businesses must implement the multicurrency support in their billing and payment processing.

Why Is the Multicurrency Support Important for Revenue Growth?

SaaS and other digital products with a global base cannot afford to lose their long term sources of the recurring revenue because of the unavailability of the preferred or localized currency.

Here are some of the most important reasons to incorporate the multicurrency support to their billing and payment collection processes:

  • Pricing, Invoicing, and Transactions—All in Customer’s Preferred Currency

Cut the Clutter, Display Plans, Tax, Discounts, and All in Customer’s Currency. It is comfortable and reliable for the customer to find all the pricing information including product’s pricing to one-time setup, other recurring, or service charges, tax calculations, discounts, etc. across the self-service portal and in their invoices to their checkout pages in their local currency without cluttering the spaces.

  • Allows Customers to Pay in Domestic Currency

Customers often abandon their carts when they do not find their local or preferred currency at checkout, particularly, when they want to make payments in cash or through bank transfers. Allow customers to find all the pricing, payments, and reporting in their domestic currency.

  • Fewer Cart Abandonments Means More Sales and More Recurring Revenue Streaming

The availability of the multicurrency at checkout reduces the risks of cart abandonments. Any customer reaches to the stage of adding the products in the cart is quite inclined to make a purchase. Research suggests that unavailability of the domestic currency is one of the top reason for cart abandonment.

  • Reduce Excessive Charges Burden of Currency Conversions from Customers

Even if the customers do not have other frictions to pay in merchant’s default currency, they avoid paying in international currency due to the extra charges of the currency conversion. The currency exchange rates fluctuate, constantly, and that it can incur them more money.

However, the support to the customer’s local currency frees them from these extra charges. Merchants can also get rid of it by simply opening multicurrency or multiple accounts in particular currencies in the respective regions.
