Want to increase Exports? Local Currency Pricing may be the solution…

10:10 10 January in FX

Can your business benefit by adopting Local Currency Pricing?

With the current low exchange rate environment (in relation to GBP) businesses would naturally expect to export more goods and services as they would be cheaper to international buyers. Unfortunately this is not always the result due to some international buyers being scared away by foreign pricing e.g. GBP if the buyer was based in France. There are a variety of reasons buyers may be skeptical of foreign pricing and the main ones are: little experience dealing with exchange rates & foreign exchange risk, expensive currency transfer rates when making international payments with their bank, lack of access to alternative FX providers, and never purchased internationally.

What are the benefit to my business

  • Increased Export Sales of Goods & Service
  • Bigger margin
  • Improved buyer relationships
  • New and larger marketplaces for your company


How can my business price in Local Currency

Just as you invoice your current clients in your domestic currency you would instead quote your clients in their domestic currency instead. E.g. Rather than quoting GBP £100,00, if your client was based in USA you would quote them in USD $125,000 (Based on an exchange rate of 1.2500). Caution: The foreign exchange risk has now been transferred from the buyer to the seller so a comprehensive Foreign Exchange strategy needs to be put in place to profit variations.
