How do I get charged when I receive International payment.

(Last Updated On: June 15, 2018)


When you receive payment in other currencies other than your default currency, the money will be deposited to your account in your default currency (please note that your default currency is defined by your country of business domiciliation)

Breakdown of process.

This is how the process goes from the moment you receive payment to when withdrawal can be made.

Payment received in other currencies >>>> payment converted to your default currency  using internal FX rate>>> transaction of 4.5% is applied >>>> money is lodged in your wallet >>>> maturity period of T-5 applies >>>> money is now available for withdrawal.

For example, if your account is domiciled in Naira and you have international gateway enabled. When a user pays for an item in USD, the money is first converted and deposited to your account in Naira (based on VoguePay’s FX rate).

After this, the 4.5% transaction charge will be deducted, the fund will now mature (T+5) before you can withdrawal it to a bank account.

NOTE: In case you DO NOT want your transaction in USD to be converted to your default currency, you need to open another VoguePay account with USD as your default currency.

      Based on your need, you will have to create separate payment buttons for each of the accounts so that the transactions can be treated differently when you request withdrawal.

      Please note that is not be possible to credit your naira account with USD, some of this restrictions are due to CBN de-dollarisation policy in Nigeria.

      Hello Martins. ….you are right. The country you chose determines the default currency you will be allocated. Also, you will be required to verify your account with your address in the country.
