About the DCC Forum

The DCC Forum has been created by a group of 5 international companies, all of whom work within the Dynamic Currency Conversion (DCC) and financial services sector. You can see the list of companies on our Members page.

As DCC experts, it is our objective to help you understand what DCC is and to ensure that when DCC is available, it is offered to you correctly and in a clear and transparent manner.

We have come together to work on your behalf to ensure that when you are offered DCC, the transaction is correctly carried out at all times. We will help you to understand what the on screen offer means and to determine the value of choosing the DCC option.

Objectives of the DCC Forum

1. The DCC Forum aims to help you understand the options available when you are presented with the choice to make a purchase using Dynamic Currency Conversion

2. The DCC Forum also promotes a fair and transparent use of Dynamic Currency Conversion within our industry

Why has the DCC Forum been created?
