I'd also like to know if there's a way to add a flat 1.5 or 1.75% to expenses for card fees. This seems to be a glaring issue.
Hi @Andre - Are you looking to add the flat percentage rate to expenses that are outside your default currency? Or do you want this flat percentage applied to all expenses regardless of the currency?
If you're looking to add this percentage to expenses outside your default currency, I'd recommend taking a look at our currency conversion surcharge.
I added the currency conversion rate for my credit card of 2.99% but new receipts do not have this added. I have resorted to getting each reported surcharge from the card provider and reporting it as a distinct Bank Charge expense against the card provider. A pile of work to do something that is supposed to be done automatically. Expensify support was not helpful, apparently not aware that this can be applied to credit cards. Help!
Hello @dflexer - happy to help with this. I took a look and things seem to be setup correctly, however I'd like to request a little test from you before I escalate this further.
Can you please navigate to report ID 30398916 (shift+G allows you to search by report ID) and remove that expense from the report. Once the expense is removed from the report please add it back to the report and let me know you've done that. I'll gather some more evidence and present it to my team.
Doesn't work for me either (like dflexer). I have the rate set at 3%, but the report does not include it and only shows the actual conversion
Hi @arbil4 - Welcome to the Expensify Community!
The currency conversion surcharge is applied at the time of smartscanning, to the expense total before conversion.
Were these expenses smartscanned after the conversion surcharge was enabled?
These were smart scanned, but they were read in my local currency (it did not pick up that it was a foreign currency). So I then changed the currency (which it converted), but I cannot get it to take the surcharge into account (which was already preconfigured)
