Realtime exchange rate


Just seen new screen in android re usage abroad. The fourth screen suggests to me that I can see exchange rate instantly. As I understand it the exchange rate isn’t locked in until transaction settled, had this changed ?


That’s right - the exact rate is settled after the payment has been made. It’s not changed, sorry if that wasn’t clear.


It’s always been something I’ve known, but not sure how clear too the
’average’ person. Most won’t notice as it’ll be pennies here and there most
of time


Let’s face it unless your a bit geeky, you may not realise that it doesn’t
clear instantly, as Starling hide this as irrelevant detail for most
