Users in New Zealand can accept VisaMastercard American Express credit and debit cards.
Stripe also supports a range of additional payment methods, depending on the country of your Stripe account.
Stripe supports processing payments in 135+ currencies, allowing you to charge customers in their native currency while receiving funds in yours. This is especially helpful if you have a global presence, as charging in a customer’s native currency can increase sales.
The currency used comes into play in three places:
- The customer’s credit card currency
- The currency of the charge called the presentment currency
- The currency accepted by your destination bank account or debit card called the settlement currency
If the charge currency differs from the customer’s credit card currency, the customer may be charged a foreign exchange fee by their credit card company. The customer may also be charged a fee by their credit card company if the credit card and your business are in different countries, regardless of the currency used.
If the charge currency differs from your settlement currency, Stripe converts the charge to your settlement currency. Refer to our payouts documentation to learn about the different bank account currencies that we support.
