An international transaction fee is a fee Macquarie Card Services charge you for all international transactions. This fee is 3% of the Australian dollar value of an international transaction, and is debited to your account at the same time as the international transaction.
An international transaction is any transaction on your account that is:
Yes. If a merchant is located outside Australia and you have chosen to pay in Australian dollars (eg when you’re shopping online or in person), an international transaction fee will be charged.
Unfortunately it is not always clear when an international transaction fee will apply – especially with online transactions.
Some merchants may appear to be located in Australia – for example, they have Australian websites and display prices in Australian dollars – but they may actually be located overseas. As a result, any purchases you make on these websites will attract an international transaction fee.
If you are unsure whether a merchant is located outside Australia, please contact them before you complete your transaction.
When making a purchase (eg instore or online) or obtaining a cash advance with your credit card in a currency other than Australian dollars, the transaction will need to be converted to Australian dollars. You may be given the choice to either pay in the foreign currency or convert the foreign amount to Australian dollars at the point of sale or online checkout.
If you choose to pay in the foreign currency, this amount will be converted to Australian dollars by the MasterCard scheme using the applicable rate on the date the purchase is debited to your account. Please note that exchange rates may fluctuate between the time your purchase is authorised and the time Macquarie Card Services debit your account.
Under the MasterCard scheme, if the purchase is made in any currency excluding United States dollars, it will be converted into United States dollars before being converted into Australian dollars. You can view indicative rates set by the MasterCard scheme using the online conversion rate calculator.
If you choose to pay in Australian dollars, this process is known as Dynamic Currency Conversion (DCC). This option allows the merchant to convert the foreign currency into Australian dollars at the point of sale or online checkout at the current exchange rate charged by its DCC service provider.
The exchange rate is not determined by the MasterCard scheme. You will also incur the international transaction fee of 3% of the Australian dollar value of the international transaction. Some merchants may also charge additional fees, so choosing this option may be more costly.
You may come across DCC if you are:
When using your credit card to withdraw cash from an overseas ATM you will incur the following charges:
Some overseas ATM providers may also charge you a fee for processing the withdrawal and the amount of this fee varies depending on the provider. This fee may be charged in the foreign currency.
You can get a cash advance at any ATM that accepts MasterCard by using your card and your ATM PIN. Alternatively, you can also request a cash advance over the counter at any bank that accepts MasterCard using your card and providing your signature and photo identification.
