How do I pay in a different currency?

When booking through the ARTA Extended Request form, you can pay for shipments in any of the 17 supported currencies on the shipment view in your ARTA dashboard.

At the bottom of the quote in the Payable Total section you will now see a dropdown displaying a flag and a three letter currency code.

Clicking this dropdown will expand the module to show you all available currencies we support. Selecting any of the currencies from the list will update the display of the quote you are viewing to the selected currency based on the live mid-market exchange rate.

At this point, if you proceed to checkout you will be paying in the currency selected. If you are checking out in any currency other than USD, GBP or EUR you will be charged a 3% foreign transaction fee. To learn more about this fee and how to avoid it click here.

Note that we do not lock in an exchange rate until you complete check out (i.e. pay via credit card or request an invoice). This means that until you check out, prices displayed on the quote are subject to exchange rate fluctuations and may vary. To learn more about this click here.
