Settlement of card transactions 


Starting with 16 May 2017, the settlement currency for international transactions is EUR. Enjoy your shopping!

Transactions are debited from the card account within the period stipulated by the regulations of MasterCard International Organization.

The settlement currency between the Bank and MasterCard International Organization is RON for the national transactions (the acquiring bank is from Romania, the receipt is in RON), or EUR for the international transactions (made at an acquiring bank from outside Romania, or at an acquiring bank from Romania, in a currency other than RON).

The transactions performed in a foreign currency are authorized by the Bank on-line (in real-time) at the foreign exchange rate used by MasterCard International at the moment of the authorization. In the case of transactions performed by the Cardholder in a currency other than the currency of the account, the Bank will debit the account with the equivalent of the respective transaction and of the associated commissions, by performing the foreign exchange, as the case may be, at the foreign exchange rate of the Bank from the day when the transaction is debited.
