On the checkout form or when using APIs for Razorpay products such as Orders, Payment Links, Subscriptions or Invoices, you need to specify the desired currency and pass the amount in the desired currency subunit.

Example

The following is a sample API request and response to create an order for $20:

curl -u <YOUR_KEY>:<YOUR_SECRET> \
-X POST https://api.razorpay.com/v1/orders \
-H "content-type: application/json"
-d '{
"amount": 2000,
"currency": "USD",
"receipt": "rcptid #11"
}'

currency

mandatory

string Currency in which you want to accept the payment. For example, GBP. Refer to the

section below for a list of supported international currencies.

amount

mandatory

integer The amount to be charged in the specified currency subunit.

For example, when selling a product for ₹1000 in the domestic market, you pass INR in the currency parameter and 100000 in the amount parameter (since the amount should be in paise).

When selling in the international market, you might want to charge $20 for the same product. In this case, you must pass USD in the currency parameter and 2000 in the amount parameter (since the amount should be in cents).

The

will contain additional fields when the currency is not INR to provide visibility into the conversion rate.

Example

The following is a sample payment entity for a $1 payment:

{
"id": "pay_Donb2t6WkJYhfU",
"entity": "payment",
"amount": 100,
"currency": "USD",
"base_amount": 7129,
"base_currency": "INR",
"status": "captured",
"order_id": "order_CjCr5oKh4AVC51",
"international": true,
"method": "card",
"amount_refunded": 0,
"refund_status": null,
"description": "Payment at the Dollar Store",
"card_id": "card_Donb2wk8eC8EDN",
"email": "gaurav.kumar@example.com",
"contact": "9364591752",
"notes": [],
"fee": 207,
"tax": 0,
"error_code": null,
"error_description": null,
"created_at": 1400826750
}

base_currency

string The conversion currency that will be used to calculate fees and settlements. This currently defaults to INR and is present only if the currency is not INR.

base_amount

integer The converted payment amount that will be used to calculate fees and settlements. Represented in the smallest unit of the base_currency. This attribute is currently only present if the currency is not INR.

When using products such as Payment Links or Subscription Links, ensure you select the desired currency from the currency dropdown and add the amount in the selected currency. For example, if you want to charge $20 when selling in the international market, select USD in the Currency dropdown and enter 20 in the Amount field.

Watch this video to see how to select the international currency from the dashboard.

Once your customers have made the payment, the payment amount is converted to INR and settled to your Razorpay Payment Gateway (PG) account as per your settlement schedule.

The exchange rate (according to the processing bank) on the date the payment was made is used to make the conversion. For example, a customer made a payment of $10 on February 02, 2019, and your settlement schedule is T+7 business days for domestic transactions, where T is the date of capture of payment. Here, the conversion rate depends on the date the payment has been captured, February 02, 2019, when USD to INR was 70, that is $1 = ₹70.

₹700 (minus tax and fees) is settled to your account on February 09, 2019, irrespective of the conversion rate on this date.
