I have an (a potential) issue with 2 transactions I made using my Curve card on 23rd July 2021.
Concerning the exchange rate of £ to ¥ (japanese Yen). As the attached screenshot shows, I made 5 transactions for loosely the same amount give or take… yet 3 of the transactions utilise an exchange rate of £1 = ¥152, whilst 2 of the transactions utilise £1 = ¥76. All 5 transactions were made within a 30 minute window
Is this correct? I understand the theory of a wholesale exchange rate, but I struggle to understand why 2/5 transactions are offering exactly half of the exchange rate, effectively costing me £30+ yet if I had processed the payment through PayPal using my curve card, I wouldn’t have seen this.
I’m new to curve, but is this normal?
