Use it practically anywhere, for anything
Easily shop locally or internationally, from Dunedin to New York. Groceries from across town. Undies from Napier. Music online. Or hop on a plane and shop abroad, using local currency you’ve loaded. Tokyo, perhaps?
Lock in your preferred currencies and know how much you've got
Get maximum value by loading your money into different currencies when you think the exchange rate looks good, locking that rate in. Plus you won’t pay international transaction fees when you use one of our supported currencies to shop (eg buying US goods online using your US dollars).
See how you can avoid some of the fees here.
