    Buying from USA/Caxton 23rd Oct 19 at 12:38 AM
    Hi

    I am buying from usa and cant use hsbc due to high charges, i have a caxton card with gbp and usd, will this be cheaper? When i buy online which ccy will be used as in the app there is no way to set ccy preference on spending?

    Are there better methods to pay?

    Thanjs

    As far as I remember, Caxton gives an exchange rate equivalent to a 2.75% charge. Get yourself a credit card with no overseas fees.
