BUG: currency conversion surcharge issue (not working)
I am a Canadian (Default currency is CAD) and travel to US for work a lot. Since my card (MBNA Canada) is not supported for automatic feed. I prefer to not manually import card data and just use the receipt with smart scan feature to expense report. Because most of my travel is expensed on my credit card. There is a 2.5% bank fee for foreign transactions.
Now when I scan a USD receipt. I expect the smart scan to capture all the receipt information and most of the time I have to manually update the currency from CAD to USD. Once I do this and add the expense to a report (Default currecry CAD), I expect a the total to add a surcharge of 2.5% on top of the automatic conversion rate for that day.
April 25th, I spend $100 USD.
-The report should be 100*1.3495 *1.025 = 138.3238 CAD (Correct)
- But instead the result is 100*1.3495=134.95 CAD (incorrect)
My surcharge is setup correctly in the settings area. I am sure this is a product bug. Any idea on when this will be fixed?
This leaves no option for properly capturing the spend in my report. The only way left to fix this is for me to go into each expense and change the currency to CAD and update the exact spend as it shows on my credit card. This is very labor intensive(defeats the purpose of Expensify) and does not provide accurate currency information to client. All the expenses show up in CAD instead of USD with proper exchange rates.
Please suggest if I am doing anything wrong here in the process. Or a way to get this fixed.
