Important to note for Ghanaian Businesses
Ghanaian businesses can only receive international payments in Ghanaian Cedis (GHS) at the moment. This is why a USD charge is not captured in the table above.
What if I receive a payment from a local bank account domiciled in a foreign currency?
For card transactions made from domiciliary bank accounts in your country, that is, bank accounts in USD, GBP, EUR etc. - we charge the same fees as international cards. This means our fees will follow the table above, depending on the currency you are receiving.
