Foreign Currencies

How does Tremendous handle sending rewards internationally?

Overview

The default currency on Tremendous is USD, but it's not necessary to specify otherwise even if you have recipients located internationally. However, you may want to specify another currency if:

  • You marketed the reward for a specific amount
  • You want to send a gift card that has specific currency requirements

How it works by default

If you don't specify currency when you place your order, Tremendous will send the reward in USD and automatically convert it to the currency of the selected payout.

What exchange rate does Tremendous use?

We use the Fixer API.

An example of currency conversion

You send a $25 reward. The recipient is located in Canada and chooses an Amazon.ca gift card. They will receive the equivalent CAD value based on the foreign exchange rate.
