WEX, an international payments company, will now allow its European customers to settle payments in eleven currencies, up from a previous three.

The company will offer credit cards in Australian and New Zealand dollars, Danish and Norwegian krone, Swedish krona, South African rand, Polish zloty, and Swiss francs as well as euros, U.S. dollars, and British pounds.

"This update enables WEX Europe customers to pay their global suppliers in local currencies more efficiently," WEX Europe managing director Myles Stephenson said in an April 20 press release, adding that offering payments in local currencies "eliminates the risks of currency fluctuation, improves reconciliation in local currencies to ensure no variances, and makes any card network charges fully transparent."
