Our center does not dictate nor are we involved on the stated credit card exchange rates. A general current currency exchange may be found at a Currency Converter website.
Credit card exchange rates are normally lower that of direct bank transfer exchanges rates or cash conversions rates. You may thus like to consider other forms of payment if the exchanges rate is a factor of concern.
