If the Charge is not in U.S. Dollars, the conversion will be made through U.S. Dollars, by converting the Charge amount into U.S. Dollars and then by converting the U.S. Dollaramount into Indian Rupees. If the Charge is in U.S. Dollars, it will be converted directly into Indian Rupees. Unless a specific rate is required by applicable law, you understandand agree that the overseas American Express treasury system will use conversion ratesbased on interbank rate that it selects from customary industry source on the business day prior to the processing date, increased by a foreign currency conversion mark up of 3.5%.
If Charges are converted by third parties prior to being submitted to American Express, any conversions made by those third parties will be at rates selected by them. Please note that if the charge is made in Nepal and Bhutan, currency conversion factor is not applicable as such charge will be denominated in Indian Rupees to the Cardmembers.
