GBP is default currency when paying with my USD card

I have 1 card linked with USD balance on it, yet I keep getting the option for paying with GBP, thus costing me a double fee of currency change that i don't **bleep**ing need to pay, which amounts to about 10usd for every about 80usd worth of transaction, i've tried cancelling this but there isn't an option for it, if it's an automatic transaction i don't even get to choose on the pop up screen because there isn't one and payment goes through in GBP which is somehow the default, how do i only pay with USD ? or at least make paying with USD default ?

Hi @Ooga

 

This definitely sounds like it's been frustrating. Typically, a credit card's currency is set by the card when the credit or debit card is added to an account. You may need to reach out to Customer Support to get further assistance with changing the currency on the card.

 

Hope this helps!"
