Cash Conversion Surcharge - Makes little sense
Hi, I have a Cash Conversion Surcharge set in my account to match my credit card charges for transactions out of currency. For the last year I have been assuming it applied after the currency was converted. I.e. correct about in shown in amount field and then the total field is increased by the % shown after conversion. Only today I have managed to work out that it applies after smart scanning and therefore changes the amount I'm claiming in the spend currency. This makes little sense to me
1) If I choose not to smart scan it won't apply
2) If smart scan fails it won't apply
3) The admin checking my expenses thinks all the values I'm claiming are wrong
Any way this could be updated to make more sense? It would be ideal to show it in each expense line. I.e. original amount, converted amount, total amount after credit card uplift.
Of course, this doesn't help if the exchange rate between Expensify and the card issuer isn't the same, but it is a a start.
